He graduated from St. Paul Grade School and was a 1974 graduate of Garfield High School. Kevin worked as a welder for many years. He was a wonderful caretaker for his father. More recently, he worked at Louisiana Famous Fried Chicken. Kevin enjoyed his retirement. He had the biggest heart of anyone and was always willing to help any being in need. Kevin performed many good deeds with nothing expected in return. His big heart, smile, and laughter will be greatly missed. Even in death, his legacy of love and generosity will continue through being an organ donor.
