He loved music and playing his guitar. He was a great Dad and family man. He coached his children in basketball and introduced them to all kinds of music, which both came naturally to him. Kevin liked to go to the beach and to hike. He got into computer programming early on and computers became part of all of his jobs from then on. He also enjoyed playing the early computer games, like Space Quest, with his family. Gardening also was a love of his - planting trees, flowers, etc. - always getting his hands into the earth. He was easy going and liked being with his friends.

"Kevin?s smile made everyone else smile. We remember the twinkle in his eyes when he had an idea. Kevin loved to have fun and He always had a positive outlook; A happy soul. No one could pick out a Christmas tree like Kevin or sell them at the church ?Tree sale? as chief of the trustees.
We had some wonderful family Thanksgivings and beach vacations with our families and will always remember the fun times. We were always amazed at Kevin?s brain and how good he was at cards, lawn care, Christmas lights, music, games, coaching, grilling, and being a friend. We love you Kevin and our hearts and tears go out to you Jill, Colleen, and Scott. We will make sure Adrian knows All these wonderful memories. Love, Ron and Suzanne Forsberg"
