He was later employed for nearly 30 years with Cotter and Company, and had spent his last eleven years working with Elkay Wood Products in New Ulm. Besides his work, Kevin dearly enjoyed nature. He enjoyed sharing his love for the outdoors by taking his kids deer and pheasant hunting, and fishing. Many entertaining summers were spent wearing his number 29 jersey playing in his numerous softball leagues. He also dearly loved cheering for #24 Jeff Gordon, the Twins, and the Vikings. What Kevin loved the most was spending time with his family and being able to watch his children grow. He will be missed dearly by all of those whom his life touched.
