Kevin graduated with a bachelors in education and fine arts minor from SIUE in 1973. Kevin worked several years at Schnucks grocery and briefly as a high school art teacher in St. Louis. The remainder of Kevin’s work career was for Associated Wholesale Grocers (AWG) in Springfield, Mo. as a Director of Bakery, Deli, & Food Service Operation starting Aug. 1985, and retired Dec. 2012 after 45 years in the upper management grocery industry. Kevin and Mary spent their retirement with friends and relatives and traveled statewide and abroad often. They made their home in O’Fallon, Mo. Kevin had a love for cars, 60’s music, and history. In his free time he would build model cars and read the newspaper daily especially his comics section favorite, The Argyle Sweater. He was best known for being genuinely joyful and friendly, giving great advice without judgement, his goofy sense of humor could always make you laugh, and his faith-filled trust in God in all things.
