  1. Although I’d lost touch with Kevin many years ago, after we graduated from WHS, I fondly remember him for his sense of humor and conviviality.

    His passing saddens me, and I’d like to extend my family’s prayers and thoughts to Kevin’s at this time.

  3. I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin only a few times in my life, and he was really one of the special guys. He was married to my cousin Luann (Dixon), I remember years ago, their family went to Darien Lake for a vacation camping, and they forgot there tent. Well, Luann and Kevin looked us up and all we had was a little blue pup tent, and they lived in it for a week. We had a great time that evening, I remember they came over for a cookout, one of the best times I spent with any of my cousins. He will be missed a bunch. Take care Kevin, and also Luann. Mary and I send our love and condolences.
