My memories are from growing up and visiting the family in Michigan and visiting with my Uncle Kevin. My mom loved her little brother so much and always wanted to protect him and I still believe she is. My thoughts and prayers are with the family

When I think of Kevin I hear his laugh! Always a comedian with his own little dance. Whenever we saw each other we would do it together and laugh!! He will definitely be missed! My prayers are with you all.

I've only known Kevin as the "appliance repair guy ", but he fixed a few things for me in the last 16 years. He was just at our house a few days before he passed and he wasn't feeling good and I told him he looked like shot and he still came to our house. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. We donated to the GoFundMe and I shared it on my page.
— Mike and Deb Hillyer
