Kevin Scott Winter, 60, of Fairview Heights, IL, born April 10, 1954, in Muskegon, MI, died Saturday, May 2, 2015, at his residence.

Mr. Winter was a missionary for 40 years with the Missionary Unification Church.  He was known for his enormous love and warmth of heart towards Africa and his work there
in teaching the principles he lived by, one of which, and most importantly, was to live for the sake of others.  We truly will miss his presence.

his mother, Vernetta, nee Alsredson, Winter, of Atlanta, GA;
