Kevin recently returned to Illinois and purchased a condo in an over 55 community in Round Lake. Kevin lived and coped with mental illness most of his life, in the end the distress became unbearable.

Kevin, a gentle giant with a big heart who shared more with Albert Einstein than a birthday, he was a genius in his own way. I miss and love you Kevin
