Visitation at the funeral home on Thursday from 2:00 p.m. to time of services. Kevin Brynn was born on June 11, 1971 in Gary, Indiana and was a graduate of Merrillville High School, Class of 1989. A jack of all trades, Kevin did everything from serving patrons their meals in fine dining restaurants to serving and protecting the people of his country. Kevin was a U.S. Army Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, attaining the rank of Sergeant 1st Class with over nine years of service. For many years, Kevins home away from home had been divided between Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Afghanistan, and Iraq. While he was actively serving his country, Kevins detail included Light Infantry Platoon Sergeant; 82nd Airborne Infantry and United States Army Special Operations Command. He was presently an employee of Metis Solutions, LLC in Afghanistan where he continued his call of duty as a non-lethal operations advisor. Kevins love for his country led him to some of the most austere environment in Afghanistan, providing valuable insight to units and commanders of all levels, having an impact that possibly saved the lives of many Americans and those of our NATO allies. Always devoted to his family, friends, co-workers, and military brothers and sisters, Kevin will be sadly missed by all who knew him and loved him. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor, work ethics, heroism, humanity, and love for his family and friends. He also had a great love and concern for the well being of the families of his fallen friends. In lieu of flowers, it would be greatly appreciated if memorials would be sent to the Wounded Warrior Project Fort Bragg Chapter Family Support. www.woundedwarriorproject.org www.baranfh.com (219) 659-4400
