My dear friend who brought light to the lives of many. You were a bubble of glee. A rainbow of fun. And a bucket of laughs. Not once when I saw u did u not throw me a huge gigantic smile and run to throw your arms around me. You brought joy to many moments of my life. But even bigger than that, you brought joy to hundreds more. Your giggle and sense of humor were contagious. And right now, this town is a little bit dim. May the Angel's of Heaven be playing a game of ball with you right now. Until we meet again in Heaven, RIP.

When I was a city bus driver, Kevin would ride my bus. He was always a bright light in my day- always smiling! I remember that he liked Sponge Bob Square Pants and so I gave him that pet name. Rest in peace with your Jesus, dear Kevie❤️

Kevin was ONE of the reasons why we went to Lumberkings baseball! He was as much a part of the game as the players were! He would ALWAYS greet us and sit by us at many of games! It just will never be the same without him shouting..’Let’s Go Lumberkings!’ RIP Dear Kevin...You have the best seat in the House!
