Mr. and Mrs. Hanchar, I remember Kevin as a fine young man, and it does not surprise me at all that he accomplished so much so soon. You must be very proud of him, as am I. With a great attitude and outstanding work ethic, he was a pleasure to work with as a student. I shall think of him often, and my thoughts are with you.

I worked with Kevin on midnites at Community for about 3 years. We worked weekends together and our weekend crew often played games and shared favorite foods. Kevin talked a lot about his family, and it was obvious how much they meant to him. I have a lot of fond memories of working with Kevin- from playing super competitive Uno games, to having Taco Bell one too many times, to being driven insane by his Christmas music! I will always cherish the memories I have of Kevin, and am incredibly saddened that he was taken so soon. My heart goes out to his family. Kevin, I hope there's plenty of Diablo sauce for you in Heaven!

Words fail me, Hanchar family. It has been such a privilege to know you and the boys over the years. I remember Kevin well and am glad I was able to coach and teach him when he was younger and compete against him on the softball field as an adult. I was especially proud when he chose Purdue. He was an excellent young man who stood out among the many students I have had the privilege to work with over the years. I am still stunned by this news. Know that I will be praying for all of you.

I am so incredibly sorry to hear of Kevin's passing. I got to know him while working at Omni and he was such a sweet and gentle soul. Every time I would pass him in the club he would say hello with a smile. He will be greatly missed, and my condolences to the whole family. God bless.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many wonderful memories with Kevin over the last decade: one being senior prom and that white tux he was so adamant about wearing (and looked so handsome!). Kevin was such a gentleman that night and every other time I saw him during high school and while at Purdue. He was loved by so many and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
