There are extroverts in the world, and then there was Kevin. Kevin’s greatest joy was his wife,
children, grandchildren, and close family and friends. Not a day went by that he didn’t feel
blessed by the close relationships he had. Kevin had a gravity that drew others to him. He
enjoyed being outdoors, hunting, fishing, dancing, cornhole competitions, riding side by side
with family and friends, as well as enjoying beers and cocktails and being the life of every party.
He always welcomed you with a big smile and warm hug and gave the same upon departure.
His wit was unmatched. He lived life with no regrets, and with nothing left unsaid. He always
said that each day was a gift and he lived it to the fullest. He will be greatly missed.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel, Staples.
