Kevin was loved by many. He was an amazing dad, grandfather, uncle, brother, son, and friend.
He loved to cook and was very much good at it that many could say. HIs favorite holidays were Thanksgiving and Christmas, going completely overboard with the Christmas decorations every year with the grandchildren's assistance. It was amazing to see what he came up with every year. He was the kind of person to say there were never enough lights! Kevin was sarcastic and a prankster, and a great person to vent to when you needed to let off some steam.
Kevin was a semi-truck driver for 35 years. He absolutely loved traveling around the US occasionally taking his daughter Kimberly over the road. They have traveled to Texas for Christmas break, Kentucky, Illinois, etc. Kevin has lots of crazy stories to tell about him and his friends in his high school years all them were something to laugh about. One of Kevin's favorite hobbies was camping. He would go with family and friends whenever he had the chance.
