Dear Kathy, Although I only met you twice, (once at Air Products and again at his Father's wake) I worked with Kevin many times over the years. I had not planned on taking an available job at Air Products but when I was told that Kevin was the foreman and that he had requested my assistance, I immediately accepted the job. It was always a pleasure to work with and for Kevin and left a good feeling trying to help him to be successful. A great guy to work with who will be remembered fondly by all who knew him.

My deepest sympathies to the entire family. I’ve been very close friends with Becky since 2003. Blessed fo meet Kevin and Kathy, Terri, and Dan. Knew quickly the incredible man, spouse, and father Kevin was/is. And Becky’s constant raving about her Dad and Mom. And I know I would do anything and everything for Becky as she is as good of complete human being as possible...not much surprise with her Mom and Dad! It’s cliche, but we must hang on to trust in God that Kevin is with God and healthy and will be waiting for you all when God calls you hone. With love and sympathies.... Randy Baker

My dearest sister Kathy and family It is with a heavy heart that all will feel the missing piece to the family circle. Be it husband father grandfather brother. You have laid to rest a wonderful man of integrity and heaven has gained a strong and loving angel. Take heart that even from another dimension he will watch over and protect all of you. That has been his sole purpose and he will complete it. My brother has always been a man of honor and I will miss him immensely. As I love him but let him go he will forever remain in my heart. Draw strength from his courage. Love your Sister and Aunt Leslie
