Kevin had a list of talents – many of which came natural. For starters he was the best story teller, with a sense of humor that was unmatched. In his spare time he would be in his shop listening to classic rock while he made, miniature to scale, wooden models of logging equipment, they were amazing. He was also gifted with mechanic hands, he could fix it all. Kevin was an artist, although he wouldn’t admit it, the things he would dream up and create were next level. Absolutely amazing.
