Kevin Joseph Baughn
August 27, 1970 – July 22, 2020
Kevin Baughn, age 49, passed away on July 22, 2020 in Seattle. He was born August 27, 1970 and spent most of his life in the North Seattle area. He attended Nathan Hale Highschool, achieved the prestigious Eagle Scout Award and graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a bachelor’s in business administration and a minor in finance. Kevin began his career in Nordstrom Credit where he became the manager of collections in the Denver office. Kevin then switched gears to his successful career as an underwriter in the Cyber insurance industry in Seattle where he was able to fulfil his life’s passion: travel. Kevin was known as a travel guru with elite airline status and was always thrilled to help family and friends book trips and get the best deals. He traveled frequently and visited many countries around the world, sailed on numerous cruises and flew first class nearly everywhere he went. Kevin also had a passion for fine dining and never missed an opportunity to enjoy fine caviar or escargot when the opportunity presented itself. Kevin will be remembered for many things including his infectious laugh, incredibly sharp mind and attention to detail. His ability to recall numbers and facts was unparalleled. Kevin will be deeply missed and has left us too early. Kevin is preceded in death by Gary Baughn (father). He is survived by Sylvia Baughn (mother), Julie Warner (sister), Wayne Warner (brother-in-law), and Lindsey Warner (niece). Kevin’s remains will be scattered by family and friends in the Puget Sound. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Shatterproof (www.shatterproof.org).

I didn't know Kevin well, but I knew him through a mutual friend and did meet him a couple of times and heard a lot about him. I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. Far too young, and he will be missed. My condolences to his family and friends and cat, Tux.

I had the pleasure of knowing Kevin his whole adult life and took advantage of his travel expertise, often with his Parents, Sylvia, and Gary. I not only enjoyed his wit and keen mind but recognized that he would be a great employee in a business that I started; Cyber Insurance and Digital Risk.
People in the technology and software business like to refer to those with the capacity and intellect to grasp concepts and granular details as “having bandwidth” Kevin had bandwidth and more.
Kevin will be missed by all and our deepest sympathy and love to Sylvia and Julie.

Kevin was full of great trivia and was always excited to share. I think he could speak on any topic given. I enjoyed my conversations with Kevin, but more so, I enjoyed watching the Seahawks games with him.
Your presence will be missed
my friend :(

I will forever remember Kevin fondly. Fellow insurance buddies and travel snobs, we'd discuss airport lounges and hacker attacks for hours.
Everyone I knew in the industry liked working and communicating with Kevin. He was selfless, attentive, and made others feel great.
God Bless Kevin and his family.

Kevin was my cousin, a good young man who tried to live life his way. I am still feeling shocked to hear of his death, and sad I cannot come from Saskatchewan to help his sister Julie and family, and his mother, my Aunt Sylvia, celebrate his life. May he rest in peace.

To the family of Kevin...
What a tragic loss that many of us are feeling at this time. I met Kevin at Nordstrom several years ago and we were instant friends. He had such a great sense of humor, he was direct, yet very, very kind. Thinking about his laughter now makes me smile. I will miss him dearly and so sad that we lost touch over the last two years.
His family was important to him. He often spoke of all of you, especially his niece. May God give you strength during this difficult time.

So very sad to hear about Kevin. 4 weeks ago we were still sending sarcastic political text messages to each other. I could not imagine then that Kevin would no longer be with us.
Kevin and I took epic mileage runs all around the world. He could find the best flights and somehow Almost got us upgraded. My nickname for Kevin was Master of all things travel.
Kevin’s sense of humor always made me and everyone around him laugh.
I’m already missing my friend of almost 25 years. Rest In Peace Master.

This is truly heartbreaking news. I have so many great memories hanging out with Kevin when he lived here in Denver. I spent every Sunday during football season at his house for a couple of years and we would watch NFL football all day long.
BBQ’s and card games and work trips. Kevin was always a blast and knew all the best places to stay and eat. Kevin was a kind and caring guy and very funny and smart. After he moved back to Seattle he would call me up and ask if his room at Hotel Range was open for the weekend and he would come visit and stay with us. We met in San Diego and Vegas and I always enjoyed seeing Kevin again. Had a great time golfing in Arizona and staying with his parents at their beautiful home there and meeting up in Seattle as well. He will be sorely missed. Warm wishes and prayers go out to Kevin’s family. RIP my friend, RIP!
