A lifelong resident of Bryan County, Kevin (also known as “Cornbread” to family and friends) attended Colbert High School and transferred to Durant High School to play football until graduation.

After college he went to a work at Pillsbury, where he worked for 18 years until they closed then went on to a few different positions that include; truck driver, Haliburton in the oil field, hauling hay. His proudest title was being a dad and grandpa. He loved his family and cherished the time spent with them. Kevin was a fisherman and an avid sports fan.
