Wow... so sad to hear this. Kevin was one of the most friendly people I knew - always had a smile for you and a welcoming heart. When I started attending Mt. Carbon Christian Church in 1980 he was playing the piano when I walked in, and boy, could he ever make those keys sing. We sang "choruses" at the beginning of each service, and he wrote down the words for me on a small piece of paper that I still have, tucked away in my main Bible. Whenever I come across the paper I start singing and remembering Kevin (and Jan Burkey, playing the organ) and what a sweet spirit we had at Mt. CCC. I'm not home this week and will miss his service, but I'll always remember him singing "They that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings, as eagles. They shall run an d not grow weary, they shall walk and not faint. Teach me Lord, teach me Lord, to wait," Kevin's wait is over and he's running around Heaven rejoicing with George and Frances and other loved ones. I know I'll see him again one day and we'll sing new choruses. Hugs and prayers for peace for everyone. Love you all ~

He never knew a stranger, he was always telling stories of our childhood memories, he was very smart, he could make a piano or organ really get up n go. He didnt need mu sed ic it was in his head already. He was fun to be around, sometimes even get on your nerves at times cause he would correct anyone, Saturday the day before his death he was sure full of words. We all heard him talk all day long . I sure miss our talks n his ideas when I told him what kinda project I wanted to do. We were the two misfits if the family. I miss you dearly n someday will see you again. I love you. RIP Kevin my brother. Sister

I wish I could explain all the wonderful and inspiring things I found in Kevin....but I don't seem to be able to find the words. Words. That was his love. Discovering new or forgotten words...sharing and using them. He was a man of great intellect and talent. I loved him dearly...always will. Every conversation...nearly daily....contained the words I love you. I will miss you, my dear friend. Finally...u get to rest. My usual closing...eternally....love and hugs. ❤
