What can I say? From childhood sweetheart, to husband, to the very best Dad our kids could ever have. It doesn’t seem real that you’re not here. You were loved more than you ever knew. You are and will always be missed. To our kids, your Dad loved you both so much. You were his life. Take peace in knowing that you will see him again. But for right now Kev, I hope you’re singing with the angels.

I’m sorry to hear if Kevin’s passing. Even though it has been years since I’ve seen him, we all lived in same small area off Kleburg Rd known as the “Circle”. My in-laws James & Babe Bryson lived next door to Kevin & his family. I was the kid that lived in the trailer house on Kleburg Rd.
Must have been something in the water there because I was a city carrier for the postal service in Willspoint & GrandSaline until retirement.
Prayers of comfort in the months to come.

Kevin, Go Rest High On That Mountain. I know loved ones will miss you. I have my memories of you. No one can take those away.
One memory that stands out was the ice storm in Fredericksburg but we made it through it.
RIP May God Bless Your Family

I remember Aunt Vera loading all of us boys and took us to a barber school nearby to get haircuts. Kev had a full head of hair but wanted a burr haircut. The student barber ask if could practice on Kevin’s hair. It was so funny to see Kev with all those different hairstyles but in the end it was all buzzed off. If I remember correctly you could get a cheap haircut there l believe it was a dollar.

I loved talking to Kevin when he was at an event, mostly, in support of his granddaughters - one or the other. He loved those girls and was there for them so much. He was always up for a good conversation and always had something wise to say. The last conversation I remember having with him was at Angie's Christmas party where he told me how fiercely he enjoyed attending church at Wildwood Baptist and how blessed he was to have found Jesus. I'll miss seeing him at the girls' events. Until we meet again...

My cousin Kevin and I ran around together a lot in our early teens. I remember when he tried to teach me to drive. I was probably 15 and I begged him to let me drive in a parking lot. He kept saying no and that we would get into trouble but I begged and begged until he finally gave in. I immediately proceeded to rear end a parked car. I can’t remember exactly what happened except he said he had done it so I wouldn’t get into trouble. I remember he was always chivalrous in that way. I remember my older cousin as a very kind soul. When he visited me years later, after he had children, he told me nothing in his life mattered more than those two kids. They were his happiness.
