Kevin Tyler McDonald

Kevin McDonald, 15, passed away February 1, 2013 while on his way to Woodland Park High School. Kevin was born June 4, 1997 in Colorado Springs and was the fifth of six children. Kevin was a sophomore at Woodland Park High School where he excelled at math and science and was an honor roll student. Kevin planned on being an NFL referee or becoming the owner of the Denver Broncos. In the unlikely event that Kevin's NFL career didn't pan out, his backup plan was to be an accountant. Kevin was a gentle, kind, and very smart kid that loved the Denver Broncos, playing soccer on the Woodland Park and Rec. league, and hanging out with his family and friends. Kevin, his sister and brothers, always had many friends at the house, sleeping over, playing games, and generally being silly. Kevin is survived by his parents, Dave and Sue, and his four brothers Bill, Andy, Kurtis, Jimmy and his sister Heather. He is further survived by his grandparents James McDonald and David Bruce, his niece Kaia and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Kevin's funeral service will be held at Woodland Park Community Church at 11:00 AM Thursday February 7th. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Mountain Memorial Funeral Home in Divide. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Kevin loved the zoo; his favorite animal was the hippo.
