Kevin served on the ambulance with me years ago...we told everyone that we were cousins because we had the same last name and liked to think we were related! We laughed a lot...he was a wonderful soul and the world will be darker without him. Rest in peace "cuz". Love, Judi Howard Rose and Jim Rose.

Sorry to hear about Kevin, he was a very nice guy and gave great respect to all veterans he came into contact with. He will be missed by Post 1593 American Legion with his membership as a Son and his service to the Post.

Got to know Kevin when he started working at the Legion and I never knew a more polite person. He always had something nice to say about a person and you never knew what he would say next. In life you sometimes meet someone that you get to admire. Kevin you were that person.
