I worked with Kevin a short time. However, it didn't take much time to get to know Kevin. His frankness and transparency let you know exactly what he thought. His energy, laughter and exuberance would always brighten your day. I am thankful to be able to call Kevin my friend. I look forward to seeing Kevin again, when those of us who know Jesus as Lord and Savior, will meet again. May Kevin's family be comforted in the Name of Jesus. God Bless You All.

All of us ‘kids’ grew up together & you were more like a sibling than an uncle in regards to how we grew up. I’m so humbled to have been able to share so many memories with you. I’ve had many moments of uncontrollable & impressionable laughter because of you. To this day I still tell stories of arbitrary moments turned into a lasting memories at your hand. You were truly a wonderful & kind human being at heart. I’ll never forget that & I’ll never forget you. Love you always, Britt

Kevin was more to me than a Nephew, he was more like one of my Sons. His vibrant laugh, corny jokes and funny dancing would lift me up when I was feeling down. The past 5 years we worked together will remain precious to me with so many great memories.
Forever in my heart Kev
