    Went through grade school and high school with Kevin and we were pretty close friends back then. Life changes and I had not seen him for many years now but I have many memories of our younger years as friends. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Rest in peace my friend.

    K.P.
    Where to start? Although all of us could not be there to send you off properly, please rest knowing we all LOVED you just the same and you will leave a huge gap in our extended family.

    We will treasure all those memories we have of laughing, teasing and picking on one another in fun.

    Who knew our hug in September would be the last? Tell Jan she is right. You always have to give a hug goodbye.

    We know you are in a better place, no pain and no more suffering. We all cannot wait to see that smile and hear that contagious laugh again. We are sure you will great each of us on a red four wheeler!

    Until then our dear friend, We will think of you often and with a smile.

    With all of our Love the Roger Weber Family

    My dear, dear brother-in-law. A year ago, you were my rock when Steve had his heart surgery. And now, I will try to be his rock and comfort him in his loss, in our loss. We will miss you SO MUCH! You would have loved the Memorial Service and the after-party, all your great friends and wonderful relatives together and talking about you, enjoying the memories, your great laugh, your smile, your unmatched wit, your wonderful, wonderful children and beautiful grandchildren. You have lived a CHARMED life but it was over much too soon. We look forward to seeing you in Heaven!
