My love and prayers to all of you
While i did not have the chance to become real close to Kevin, I am blessed to have had the honor of meeting him.
Prior to meeting Kevin, I already knew he was a very decent man . I knew he was a loving husband and father .I also knew he was a loving grandfather as he helped watch and raise our mutual granddaughter.
My daughters descriptions of Kevin while absolutely true , can only only be realized after meeting him.
Kevin and his loving wife Linda warmly welcomed me to their home. . My immediate impression of Kevin was a surprisingly gentle handshake along with a warm smile from a very formidable man.
I quickly realized he was warm, funny, witty, and above all loving .
I got this from a few ,somewhat, brief encounters . Those that have had the good fortune of being close to Kevin are blessed.
While i hardly knew you i am sad at your passing but glad to have met you.
You were truly a gentle giant.
My condolences to Linda, the children , my daughter, and the rest of his family.
God Bless and rest in peace in God’s love.
May God wrap you all in his arms and comfort you during this time. Sending much love and many prayers. Tiffany, Shea, Cailey, and Kenzie Curry

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
