Kevin worked hard to always provide for his family as a loyal employee of Union Pacific Railroad for 17 years. He had the love of sports running through his veins, making sure to coach his girls traveling and rec league softball teams. When he wasn’t their official coach he would be their biggest and loudest cheerleader from the stands. Kevin was over the moon when his favorite team, The Chiefs won the SuperBowl, making all his dedicated years of being their fan well worth it. Kevin never met a stranger and loved to share his contagious zest for life with everyone he met. He would make it his duty to make those around him happy at any cost. Kevin’s family will remember the many jokes and pranks he would play just to get a good laugh and make fun, lasting memories. He was an outdoorsman, spending time working in the yard, fishing, deer hunting, and trying his hand at growing plants and flowers. He liked to put on his chef’s hat and fire up the grill while entertaining family and friends and filling their bellies with his excellent food. Kevin’s grandchildren were his life, and his passion was taking his 3 grandchildren on adventures and showering them with love. Kevin’s was a life lived to the fullest and those that knew him will carry on his compassion for others, and his need to make the world a brighter place.
