This photo was sent in by his mother Brenda Cooke.----My Son, My Life, My Breath Kevin was a gently and loving son. He was dedicated and loyal to those he believed in. If Kevin thought you needed the shirt off his back more than he did, you would have it. Kevin was funny, loved music and animals. He tried to find humor in all the bad things that happened in his life. Kevin had crossed paths with many people some good, some bad, and through his short 39 years he had more pain than anyone that age should endure. But Kevin was strong willed (just like his mom) determined to get up and shake the dust off and go on. Kevin was a hard worker and no matter how big or small the job was he put total pride in each and every step seeing it through to the finish. Kevin was finally at a point in his life that changing was important, he would call me up and say mom, I prayed about this today. I would be so proud and let him know prayer works and to keep praying.

My father truly was my hero. He had a strong spirit and tried to give me my sister and his family the best world possible. He was a great grandfather who spent many weekends with his oldest grandson at Holiday world. He never skipped a beat with his children, family or grandchildren. He loved animals and would feed local stray cats around the tow lot and on the street. He truly is a one of a kind.
Gone so soon with so many unanswered questions. A Tragic death it’s never easy.
