We are so sad to hear about Kevin's passing. He was a dear friend to us and we spend a lot of time together in the 80's thru MTG and other theaters in the Madison area. He was always smiling and encouraging and just a great friend to us. We would go to Olive Garden to catch up with him and reminisce about "the good old days". He is a very special man and he will be truly missed.
Our condolences to the whole family. Anita Larson and Nancy Falk Dunham

My wife and I had numerous conversations with Kevin over the last 10 years and this is truly heartbreaking to hear of his passing. He was always positive and chipper whenever I talked to him. Our hearts go out to the family and we are so sorry for your loss.

I spent many nights in the early 90's memorizing lines and doing character study with Kevin, at his office. He was a great guy that will be missed.

We met Kevin when he did a few shows with Sun Prairie Civic Theatre. I was a costumer, Elaine Busch Jellings along with Connie Meyer. We had a lot of fun with Kevin while he was in a show. One of the things we remember about Kevin was that sometimes he had shoes that had holes in the bottom of the sole. But he always came in a suit and shirt and tie. So we would direct him to our shoe department in the costume shoppe and tell him to find a pair of shoes that would work for him in the show. He loved the the wing tip style shoe and would always tell us how comfortable the shoes were for him while he was on stage. Connie and I had a tradition of giving cast members a small gift at the end of the show and we always gave Kevin the pair of shoes he wore in the show. I think he did three or four shows with us and it was always a joke with him to pick out the best shoe in the costume shop because he might be wearing them home. God bless you Kevin, for all the joy you brought to us and anyone who saw you on stage. Thanks for the memory.
