Kevin Matthew Hole

October 3, 1989May 14, 2020

Kevin Matthew Hole, 30, died unexpectedly but peacefully in his home on May 14, 2020, of natural causes. Born at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center in 1989, Kevin lived his entire life in Palm Beach Gardens. He attended St. Marks Episcopal School, played Little League Baseball at North County LL, graduated from Palm Beach State College with an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice, and completed the Basic Law Enforcement Academy at the PBSC Criminal Justice Institute. In 2014, Kevin was hired for his dream job, when he became a deputy with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. At PBSO, he excelled as both a road patrol deputy and a member of the Street Crimes Team, receiving many commendations. Being a deputy was his calling, and the love and respect Kevin had for his brothers in blue was very obvious to those who knew him.

Kevin was also an amazing musician, becoming an accomplished pianist and organist, something few of his colleagues were even aware of. But Kevin’s most important accomplishment, by far, was being a father to the love of his life, Allie Rose, his nine-year-old daughter. Allie motivated Kevin to become the man that he was. In addition to a very special love, Kevin blessed Allie with his blue eyes and his musical gift, two things she can hold on to forever.

Kevin was loved by (almost) everyone who knew him. Nobody’s perfect. But he was a loving father, son, brother, nephew, cousin, partner, and friend. He will be greatly missed by all.

Kevin is survived by his daughter, Allie Rose; father, Michael; mother, Dana; brother, Jason; great uncle Jeremy; uncle, David Krause (Michelle); aunt, Teresa Hill; friend and cousin, Evan Krause; as well as many other cousins. A Celebration of Kevin’s Life will be held as soon as it is safe to do so.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God. Matthew 5:9

Jane, from the Town, told me about the tragic passing of your son Kevin. He was 3 weeks younger than my son and born at the same hospital. When I read this my heart dropped and I choked up for you, your wife and granddaughter. I prayed for you all right on the spot. I cannot fathom what you are going through. You must have faith and be strong. Kevin lives on in your hearts and memories. These will always be with you. Time will heal this wound. Please contemplate the following in times like this:

“Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.“
Philippians 4: 6-7

“He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds. “
Psalm 147:3

Stay close to your loved ones. Let them know you don’t understand this either, but together you will all be OK and stronger through perseverance. In time, you will all come to grips with this and in heaven God makes all things known to us. Tom Bradford

Oh, where do I start? To Dana, Michael, Jason, all of Kevin's family and friends, and especially to my sweet Allie Rose, I am so sorry. I wish there were words I could say or actions I could take that would lessen the pain of this tragic loss. The world will never be the same.

To Kevin, my first love... Thank you for all the wonderful years that we shared together. Thank you for the sweet memories, the celebrations, the trips to Orlando and New York City, and all of the private moments that we shared. But more than anything, thank you for blessing me with our beautiful and talented and strong little girl, Allie Rose. She has so much of you in her and I know that you will continue to live on through her heart, her music, the twinkle in her eyes, and that little half-smile that you gave to her. I will always love and miss you.

My boyfriend, Deputy Cannon, worked the same shift as Kevin and I will always remember the times they’d call each other throughout the night, joking around and sharing calls they had and it was clear Kevin lived for his job as a deputy for PBSO.

We would go out to dinner with him often and enjoy more laughs and stories there. Kevin was a hilarious, dedicated, kind, and fun-loving individual and the kind of person you only meet once in your lifetime. Rest In Peace, Deputy Hole, we love and miss you.

I’m terribly sorry for the loss of your son, and family member. Kevin was special in more ways than I can describe and hopefully through my words I can share some insight to just how I, and many of us felt about him.

I met Kevin as a newly assigned Deputy to district 3 in September of 2016. I really didn't know what to make of this quirky young fellow who showed up to lineup without a minute to spare and always wore what we called “grandpa shoes.” As a military guy, showing up merely on time was against my better judgement but Kevin seemed to play the role quite well.

After getting out on the road and starting to get my feet wet, I quickly became curious of this three bravo one-eight (Kevins call sign) character who seemed to clear every call he self initiated and then some as 10-8 arrest. You see, as a new deputy who is hungry to catch the bad guy, making an arrest is almost a right of passage amongst fellow deputies and officers alike. Kevin was getting the job done and with grace I might add.

As time went on, I realized Kevin was the real deal and became interested in learning his ways and Kevin taught me. We worked different zones, him north and me south and wether by phone or in person, he was always willing to walk me through something and help me learn. In November of 2017 I left the road for the Street Team. Kevin later joined Carlos, Matt, Jose, Jeff, Tyler and I and we formed what will surely go down in history as a dynasty of deputies working together for a common goal. We had our differences no doubt, but at the end of the day we were unstoppable and a force to be reckoned with.

On the Street Team we each helped one another and all learned from each other. I was lucky and fortunate to be part of such a great team with Kevin. The long days, dangerous and tedious work brought us closer together and forged a bond amongst us. I’m lucky to have called Kevin a friend and colleague and will forever remember the good times working together.
