Kevin will be remembered by his family and friends for his infectious laugh, lovable personality and caring nature. He was an avid reader and problem solver extraordinaire. He loved to tease and had a playful sense of humor. Kevin was admired as an outstanding athlete and a phenomenal water skier. As a young man, swim suits were optional. Our lives have been made richer by knowing and loving him. We lost Kevin much too soon.
