Candle lit by Roxanne Stark Hungerford Kevin was my youngest brother and you will be sorely missed. I will miss your kind gentle spirit, your repetitious ramblings, your infectious smile, your wonderful hugs. I am reminded of the last time we flew back to Fargo together...we had the seats in the very back row and you said “ the next time you fly you are going to book the bathroom because you had more leg room.” I am reminded of the hymn “How Great Thou Art” as I think of you and Mom sitting at the feet of Jesus. What a wonderful reunion the two of you must be having. I will miss you sweet brother of mine, til we meet again.

Candle lit by Shilynn Martin Kevin, I still remember your laugh and your glorious smile. The way you pissed off grandma by watching your television and later apologizing and eating her delicious food. Your laughter and spirit will always be in my heart. I wasn’t with you during your battle I know you were doing better than it progressed again, I prayed for your well being and your confidence through this. Until I see you again Paka, thanks for the great times and memories. I love you.❤️

Candle lit by Paul Stark Kevin is my beloved son and brother to his siblings. He was always there for his family he was highly thought of by friends and school mates. He will be missed and loved

Candle lit by Bob and Marcie Hatfield What a wonderful man heaven has gained! Kevin spent time with us in AR in between jobs and was absolutely delightful as he did some work in our kitchen. He was a terrific son-in-law and always had his family's welfare in mind. We shall miss his quiet steadfast manner and unique sense of humor. Fly high, Kevin, and know that we love you.

Candle lit by Kelly Pavlish I went to grade school, junior high and high school with Kevin. We also played baseball together as youngsters. We lived right next door to each other in Fargo. ND. I have not seen Kevin in decades but what comes to mind when I think about him are: how much he liked to drive his truck, he could punt the heck out of a football, his enjoyment from watching television and his laid back demeanor. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family. GOD BLESS
