Kevin was always sweet - he just had an easy, carefree and gentle way about him - even as a teenager playing football which is how I remember him best. I loved it once he and his buddy Carlos started driving and could take us to get ice cream! Listening to the Doobie Bros and Bon Seager still takes me back. Until we see you on the other side Kevin 🙏🏻🦋❤️

Kevin was the most sharing friend, his kindness as good as his heart. I will never forget the times he came to check on my mother in law in fear she was ill or bring Terry his wallet when he left it home.
He stepped up and said I can do that for you to so many friends. I know he is in heaven doing the same.

Kevin was a very special guy. I remember when Denise came home and told me she had met Keith Scott... that is an inside joke. He was her prom date...and , later, became a very special member of our family. I was the mother-in-law who really loved him as if he was a son. We shared so much as a family. Because of his connection with his religious tradition, I found my faith home. My heart will always hold his memory close. God bless our shared loved ones...my daughter, my grandchildren, my great grandchildren and my adopted Skyles family as we mourn his passing. I love you, Kevin.
