Kevin was a very fun loving man.  He especially enjoyed his nieces and nephew and their various activities.  He loved the outdoors, especially fishing and motorcycling.  He was a friend to whomever he met including four legged friends.  In his years of employment he always stayed with the field of audio visual.  He believed that only the best equipment was worth listening to.  His generous attitude continues on because he was a donor and many lives will be made better through transplantation.

He is preceded in death by father, James; brother, Bradley; grandparents, Herman & Jennie Schulte and Loren & Carol Ruddy.  He is survived by mother, Lena; sisters, Marcee Ruddy and Julie (Kai) Walther; nieces, Taunya and Kyleen; nephew, Tyler; special cousin, Jason Palmer; other relatives and many friends.
