Kevin was a bright spot in a loving family of thirteen that he truly loved and adored. They were completely devoted to him as he grew from a child to becoming a special man. His loving nature was one that knew no strangers and he was always quick to extend his hand in greeting them as a friend. He enjoyed his shows, especially “Little House on the Prairie” and the “Lawrence Welk Show” movies and loved to dance and listen to the music of his favorites such as Johnny Cash, Elvis, Vince Gill and many others. He loved to eat, especially cheeseburgers and fries and drinking coffee and also enjoyed trips to Pizza Hut. He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. Kevin had worked at Quadco for many years and was currently working at PCS in Defiance, Ohio.
