On New Year's Eve, 1982, he met his future wife, Lonna Garrett, and they were married the same year on April 30, instantly becoming a father to 5-year-old Jason Dean Jernigan. On June 20, 1983, Kevin became a proud father to second son, Randall Thomas Reed, born in Alliance, Nebraska. Kevin worked hard all of his life, and loved his family and dogs whole-heartedly. He was an avid fan of the Denver Broncos, but he took absolute pride in having the best yard and cleanest cards around. At the time of his death, he was employed as Head Structural Detailer at Standard Iron in La Vista, Nebraksa, a job he loved and took tremendous satisfaction in. Despite his affliction and painful ongoing fight with cancer, he continued to work until his final hospitalization. Kevin was preceded in death by his mother Joan, he he lost as a child on April 20, 1967.
