Well stump, today was ur funeral. I'll always remember the times when I was just a kid and we would hang out with you and justin. I'll always remember the great memories that we have had a deer camp and the time when you were with me when I killed my first deer. It'll always be tough when I drive by your house and you aren't there but I know that you are in heaven with God. You won your battle because you are with God now. I will always miss you and all the great memories we had.

Our Lord and Savior recruited a great man of not only great stature but also one of impressive moral and ethical character. Multiple generations of family members have received true inspiration to follow by Kevin. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends for their lost. May God keep you all in his grace always.
Peace be with you all.
