Kevin was my cousin and his dad and my dad Newman were brothers. I have so many memories of fun times with Kevin, Don, and Mac as a child. During our family summer trips, we’d always go to Jasper, many times gathering at their house and sometimes we cousins would stay with them. Most years we went for July 4th enjoying the fireworks, eating Uncle Goolies delicious backyard grown tomatoes, and swimming in Uncle Wallace’s pool. Kevin was just the sweetest and most pleasant person to be around. That smile always gave others a smile and his sweet demeanor drew us to him. Even though I haven’t seen you in a long time, I know your family and friends will certainly will Miss you. Hugs for you in heaven Kevin. ❤️

Uncle Kevin was more like a brother than an uncle to me when I was growing up. He lived with us for several year when he was just out of college. He had a fish tank with piranhas in his bedroom and I loved helping him feed them. He loved playing Atari and Nintendo and would play with Lindsey and I for hours on end. He also loved Legos. He would lay in the floor and we would build the biggest creations out of the buckets of Legos we had. Then, we grew up. He got married to Teri and we gained an aunt who was like a sister. A few years later, I got married. Life was hurried but we still were able to stay in touch and visit when we could. We all had children and Kevin loved to play with them, toss them in the air, sit with them and watch TV and loved them all so much. He always asked about the kids and what they were doing. He was proud of Julia when she was skating roller derby. When Cameron started wrestling, he was so proud. Since he was unable to attend the matches, I videoed every single match so he would be able to watch them from home. It made his days better and he was anxious to get new videos every week. This year will be a little different, though. As wrestling season rolls around, he will no longer be here to get the videos we send, but I am sure he will have the best mat-side seat and will be watching from above! We love you, Uncle Kevin! Until we meet again…

I was so sorry to hear of Kevin's passing. I never had the pleasure of meeting Kevin, but have worked with his wife Teri for many years. I know from conversations we have had over those many years that they had a special love between the two of them. Teri, I want you to know that I will be praying for yours and Bass's comfort and peace in the trying times ahead. If I can be of service to you in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me. My deepest sympathies go out to you and all your family.

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded...... emerson.

If this is success then Kevin Brown was one of the most successful people I know as he laughed often and much then made you laugh often and much his spirit was infectious that way. He found beauty in this world and in people even when others didnt. He left the world a better place and made it easier for many people to live their lives. The world lost a very successful man , a bright soul, and a great friend.

I was lucky enough to be the 1st nurse to take care of Kevin when he started dialysis At the small clinic in Smyrna. I will never forget it he and Teri were sitting there terrified. They had not been given a lot of education and they were just absolutely mortified. I remember looking at them and thinking how madly in love they were I let them both come back and explained every single thing that I was going to do and everything to expect Kevin was so nervous his blood pressure bottomed out!☆but I kind of expected it would happen and was ready he apologized to me so many times when I should have been apologizing to them I will never ever ever forget the love I saw this family share with each other and the love they shared between the nurses and staff that worked with them not a single person in that clinic that didn't love Kevin and Teri. He was so special, one of a kind gave so much of himself to all of us we were very fortunate to get to work with Kevin Brown and life will never be the same without him in it. We love you Teri,
Kevin. Bass.. Anyone that knew them love them dearly a big hole has been left in this world I just feel fortunate to have known Kevin and that beautiful smile and all that wisdom I know the rest of the Frensenius staff feel the same way I do. He had a way of making you fell special and loved..no judget just love. GOD has a special angel at his side.. kevin I'm doing what you told me..I doing it!!

I am sorry for your loss. Kevin always was a blast and always smiling. I am so thankful to have known him!

Kevin was a great father, husband, brother and uncle. He and I worked side by side for over 20 years. People would ask how you could work together and still get along. Kevin just had a way of making a rough day enjoyable. With each others help, there was no job that couldn't be done. He always had my back, and I had his.
After we retired, we still spent a lot of time together. If you could pick a friend to go through life with, it would be Kevin. He is already greatly missed.
I love you brother.
Mack Brown

I know Kevin was a brother-in-law, but to me he was another brother. His quick wit always made my day. When I would say something and stick my foot in my mouth, as I often do, he always had a comeback. You knew that he loved you when he gave you a hard time. He will be greatly missed.
