Kevin was a lifelong resident of Bossier Parish. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved the outdoors and loved hanging out with family and friends. He also loved watching sports, particularly LSU football. Kevin had an infectious laugh and loved and lived life to the fullest. To call Kevin the “life of the party” is an understatement. He has been described by many family friends as the funniest person they know.
