Valetta and family
Kevin was a wonderful man. . He loved his family and friends. His care and concern for his people at work was genuine.
Valetta you were part of every conversation we had!
The world is a sadder place without Kevin’s hand of friendship to all who needed it. I know I will see him again until that day I will reach out a hand in friendship to those that need it.

Arlene & family, how sad to hear of Kevin's passing. He was a good man and a good friend to my dad & mother when they all lived on Wellington. I'm sure Kevin's chewing him out good right now! My mother lives with me here in Texas. She'll be 87 next week. I pray God will comfort you all during this time of loss and grief. We just have to hang on to the Lord and His promise that we do not grieve as those who have no hope. God bless you all. Julie & Colleen Freeman
