  1. Robert S Zimmerman says:

    Kevin was a awesome friend that I had ths good fortune of meeting through scouting. He was true to his word and kept a greater vision in serving our Lord with the youth around him. He will be missed in life but his example of leadership will live on for generations to come through his family and scouts.
