“If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.” ― A.A. Milne (Winnie the Pooh)

Kevin Christopher Myklebust was born on a beautiful spring day, June 17, 1998, at St. Joseph Hospital in Denver, Colorado. Before Kevin could talk, it was clear that he would be an actor because he was always pretending to be King Kong, the Incredible Hulk, Spiderman, and a plethora of other characters. Kevin loved animals (especially snakes) and loved to bring his latest catch home to show his family. His bright blue eyes were full of wonder and excitement when he would talk about every kind of garter snake there was and how he had seen them “smithering” before he caught them. As Kevin grew, his love for nature and creation around him grew as well. Kevin was a very deep thinker and enjoyed discussions about history, politics and religion, and a good game of chess.

Kevin entered into eternal peace on Monday, February 10, 2020.

Kevin adored his brother Benjamin, his sister Hazel and their dog Tex, who adored Kevin right back! Kevin loved his uncles, aunts and cousins and had a wonderful relationship with all of his grandparents. Kevin is preceded in death by his grandmother, Ardith Mott, and his great grandparents, Julian and Jean Rede and Bust and Bassa Myklebust, who he adored.

Kevin is survived by his father and mother, Chris and Beth, brother and sister Ben and Hazel, grandparents Elling and Sherry Myklebust and Philip and Phylis Mott, each of whom he loved to spend time with and have conversations, and loads of aunts and uncles and cousins.

Kevin's Celebration of Life will be at 6:30 PM on Monday, August 3, 2020 at Faith Bible Chapel West Campus Family Worship Center, 6250 Wright Street, Arvada, CO 80004

Kevin was a good friend of mine in high school and we fell out of touch shortly after graduation and when I learned what happened I could not believe it. He was such a genuine and caring guy who always could make me laugh. I'll always remember the short extraordinary time I had with him and will forever call him my friend. I am sending my most sincere and deepest condolences to everyone feeling the loss of such a sincere soul. Kevin, we miss you. I hope wherever you are, you're at peace and you are happy. Take it easy, buddy.

Dear Chris, Beth, Ben and Hazel,
Adam and I were so glad that we could attend the memorial service for Kevin, on Monday evening. We were so happy to learn that Kevin had put his trust in the Lord, and that someday we will see him again! Praise the Lord!
It was a beautiful service and tribute to Kevin. Kevin loved you, just as much as you loved him. It is hard loving someone through difficult days, but you did it to the best of your ability with God's help, so it was exactly just what Kevin needed.
Sending love to you all and praying for God's continued peace to reign in your hearts.
Jan and Adam Orloff

I watched the video tribute to Kevin, and was reminded of 2 things:

1) how he loved to dress up so much as a kid, that the discipline that worked best was to make him be himself for the day or week!

2) just how dang hard this must be for you, Chris, Beth, Ben & Hazel, just how incredibly hard it must be to miss your son and brother.

My love to you, and my heart hurts for you all.

Oh, my heart is so heavy and sad as I heard about Kevin. I so remember Kevin as a smiling and active boy, full of curiosity. I would have given anything for a whole school of Kevin’s. He was a wonderful child whom I adored.

There are never the right words to deal with the grief you (and I) are feeling. I do know that to grieve much is to have loved much. Grief is a big, deep hole, but it will shrink some, over time, but will always be there. We will never stop grieving Kevin because we will never stop loving him.

My sincere and deepest condolences to the Myklebust and Mott families. I will continue to pray for you each and every day.
