Kevin enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping. He loved mushroom hunting and gardening. Kevin could be found tinkering on some project in his garage. He loved a good cold can of Milwaukee Best Light and playing pool or darts. Kevin was well-known for his story-telling and cracking jokes. He loved his family and his grandkids and enjoyed watching kids' movies with them. Kevin was a favorite to all the kids because he would teach them a good time. He was known as "Papa" or Uncle Wean" to everyone. Kevin was a good husband, dad, grandpa, brother, uncle, and a good friend to all who knew and loved him.
Kevin passed away on August 21, 2017 at the age of 61 years, 11 months, and 27 days. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ron and Val; his brother Ronnie Dean; and granddaughter Hadleigh.

Kevin had a unique sharp wit and sense of humor. Underneath he also had a big heart.

So sad to hear of Kevin's passing. I have fond memories of Kevin when I first moved to Malvern many years ago. He was so funny and very sweet to me. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace dear Kevin.
Kathy & families, Our family holds you all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. I will miss his jokes, his laugh and his sense of humor. The Delmar Decker Family
I remember Kevin's ability to make you laugh and smile. He helped out my mother many times and expected nothing in return. The world will be a bit sadder with Kevin in heaven but perhaps his humor was needed there more. Rest in Peace my friend. My thought and prayers to his family and extended friends.
