Mary, Megan, & Family: You are all in my thoughts & Prayers, Kevin was such a wonderful person and I am so glad to have spent quite a few Saturday mornings at the Palazzo getting to know him! No matter how tired and grumpy I was that bright and early with 2 crazy girls in tow; I would always leave in a good mood after joking and laughing with him for a couple hours.

Orndorff family,
On behalf of our neighborhood, we are all saddened by Kevin's passing. Rest assured that he will be watching over us. Over the 20 plus years that I have known him, he was always so positive and loved his family more that anything. He also gave so much of himself to others. I will certainly miss the homemade cookie tray at Christmas...and I love the Christmas Wreath he made for us when he was not feeling the best...I know he was determined to finish it. I will hang it on my door proudly, and think of him each time I see it. Thank you for being a great neighbor...and being a great friend to us all. Love & prayers to you. Bruce & Jackie Selover & family

To Kevin's family,

I met Kevin about 30 years ago at the health spa in Sidney when he was a very young man. We had a group of us guys that liked to workout and hang out together, Kevin was always quick witted and always made me smile and laugh. I have not seen Kevin in quite a few years, but rest assure I'm saddened at your loss and to the worlds loss of such a wonderful and bright young man. May God comfort you all in your loss and may I meet him again one day in Heaven where he is assured to make me laugh and there will be no more pain and suffering!

Revelation 21:4 He will wipe every tear from there eyes. there will be no more death, or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away!

Rest in peace my friend until we meet again! Jeff
