Kevin was a favorite part of my childhood. He was the cousin closest to my age, and our families spent a lot of time together. I have such happy memories of family gatherings, summers getting ice cream or going swimming, and spending time with Kevin at our grandparents' house. Kevin had the biggest heart and a way with words to let people know how much they meant to him. I only wish I had the words to say how much he meant to me. Any time I would come across someone and realized they also knew Kevin, I was always so proud to say, "Oh, yes, that's my cousin." We would go on to talk about what a great family Kevin and Carrie and their girls are. Kevin, our family will not be the same without you, yet our love for you will always go on.

Kevin and I were the best of friends throughout our school days 3rd grade on up, we rode the bus together, as we got into our teenage years we hung around a lot together at games, tractor pulls, and just hanging around Greenridge. We could talk to each other about anything and everything and make each other laugh when were sad and at times make each other mad. He even talked to me about you carrie when you first met and what he should do I told him "ask her out already", Carrie I am so sorry for your loss but hold on to the gold memories, I know I will, I will always remember kevin as the best friend I ever knew. Praying for you and the girls,

Kevin always had a smile to share. When he came in to Caseys, he would tell me that he thought my yard looked so nice. He will definitely leave a hole in this community. My prayers of comfort to his dear family.

Kevin was an amazing person and was an encouragement to many people young and old! My daughter played softball with his oldest daughter and she learned a lot from them. She just mentioned the other day how is it that people can raise children and there is no anger. Kevin had done this with his girls. He will be missed by many but his legacy of caring will go on forever! Prayers for all the family!!
