As a young man, Kevin was a gifted athlete in soccer and gymnastics. He graduated from Appalachian State University in 1991 with a BS in psychology. He had a gift for working with special populations and was a dear friend to all of his clients. Kevin also earned his certification as a Montessori school teacher and was a lifelong educator. He had a huge joy for life, and could make anyone laugh. He enjoyed cooking, baking bread and making beef jerky with his signature recipes. For exercise, Kevin loved roller skating and swimming. Later in life, he embraced drawing and painting, and had a solo show of his work in Winston-Salem in 2015. More than anything, Kevin was a very proud and loving father to his daughter Burtie, who will continue to live her life inspired by his fun and adventurous spirit.
A private celebration of his life will be held in the future.
