Kevin, the youngest of three children to Sheldon Harold and Delores Jean (Roenfeld) Williams, was born on Jan. 22, 1965 at Mercy Hospital in Council Bluffs. He grew up on the family farm near Silver City and graduated from Glenwood Community High School in 1983. Kevin attended Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs where he received his degrees in diesel and auto mechanics. He worked for Nebraska Machinery in Omaha, before switching his career path to work for Mid-West Power and then Iowa Power, now Mid-American Energy, as a lineman foreman, a job he truly loved.
Kevin and Amy Suzanne Wilson were united in marriage on Oct. 1, 2017 at the farm near Silver City. His family grew to include her children, Christopher, Chelsea, and Caleb.
Kevin was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed guns and hunting for deer, wild hogs and prairie dogs. He loved side-by-side poker runs, attending truck pulls and Harley Davidson motorcycles. His work was important to him and he took great pride working as a lineman. Kevin loved to cook and smoked meats for all to enjoy. He was an amazing person that people adored, had an infectious laugh and always had a smile on his face. He knew no stranger, loved to pull pranks and make people smile and laugh. Kevin put everyone before himself and just wanted everyone to be happy. Kids would flock to him and many called him "Uncle Kevin." He was a loving husband, son, brother, uncle, cousin and a great friend to all who knew him.
Kevin was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents; father Sheldon Williams; and nephew Taylor Williams.
Kevin is survived by his wife Amy Williams and her children, Christopher, Chelsea and Caleb Count, of Silver City; mother Delores Williams of Silver City; brother Roger Williams and wife Georganne of Glenwood; sister Nancy Petit and husband Tom of Durango, Colo.; and by many special relatives and a host of friends.
