In life, Kevin enjoyed many things, including spending time with his beloved family and friends. He was a family man above everything else, and did everything in his power to provide for his wife and children. He supported full heartedly their many interests and endeavors and encouraged them to always pursue their goals and dreams. He was a proud member of the American Legion though which he came to spend time with many good men, whose company he enjoyed. He also passionately pursued many creative hobbies, including upcycling unconventional objects into lamps and many miscellaneous carpentry projects.
Kevin’s tremendous spirit and personality has ensured that his legacy will be remembered by many of those, whose paths he has crossed in life. The impactful life lessons (and cheesy dad jokes) that he passed to his children will certainly be shared with future generations. He will be greatly missed.
