He stayed 18-years and retired. For the last 8-years, Kevin was a teacher on the Depart- ment of Defense Naval Base on Guam. From his home on Guam Kevin pursued his love of travel and exploration- vis- iting the countries of the Pacific. Kevin's extensive travels brought him into contact with many people. Those contacts gave rise to Kevin's "cottage industry" of gem- stones. People would put an order into Kevin for most any gem. In exchange for paying for his travel expenses and the cost of the gem, Kevin would fill the order. And, thus, Kevin was able t,o travel extensively. Kevin, in addition to traveling, enjoyed otd movies and music. You could say the world of the Pacific offered and Kevin accepted. Services were Monday August 8 at Fricke-Calvert-Schrader Funeral Home, Mt. Pulaski. Pastor Harold Weber offici- ated with his words of faith and comfort. Interment will be at a later date.
