I met Kevin just a few years ago at an auto shop very near my buisness. I was admiring his truck which was just like my older one.
A half hour later he was at my door, turns out he was looking for a machine shop to make an adapter for a lathe chuck. I eventually made one for him. We hit it off real well with mutual interest in machinery.
I visited his shop one real hot day when I took a scooter ride. He had several projects in process. We sat outside with wife, daughter and dog I believe, having a soda. He told me then he was fighting cancer.
I was glad I had him as a friend for a short few years and will miss him. He seemed like a real neat guy.
My condolences to you all. I will miss him.
Regards
Robert (Bob) Poe Findlay

Karen, Angie, and Jake, I had the pleasure of working with Kevin for many years at Iams in which we learned a great deal from each other. I loved Kevin's attention to detail in everything he worked on. Even at home, the barn and house he built, attention to detail was so impressive. I have missed working with Kevin and he will always be an inspiration to me. My prayers to you during this time.

Angie, your love for your father came through when you spoke of him. I especially enjoyed the stories about the amazing chicken house he built. I hope those good memories comfort you now.
