The Kevin that is spoken of by each person here is the same one that I knew during high school and as party of the 153rd.

His attitude is an example for all of us. Rest in peace!!

Words can't express our feelings!! Kevin was a great friend, He was willing to help or do anything he could. Loved his visits.... "I'm on a tight schedule gotta go"..... He would stop by and sometimes would have some meat from the small town lockers that he wanted to share.... These are some of our memories. You fought a hard fight!! We will never forget you bud!!! Hugs to you Chrissy and the rest of the family!!!

Our sympathy to Chris, Vernon and LaVerna and families on Kevin’s leaving our world on Christmas Day and going to his Heavenly home where I’m sure Ashley and Grandma and Grandpa Doering were welcoming him with a smile on their faces and open arms God speed Kevin. You fought bravely for three years but it’s now time to rest. You may be gone but will never be forgotten
