Kevin Doc Hatten, age 54 of Kenai, passed away on Saturday, March 24, 2018.

He was born in Marysville, California on Dec. 7, 1963 to Chester and Shirley (Thompson) Hatten. They moved to Alaska in 1966.

Kevin was a humble man with calloused hands and a gentle heart. He was honest, kind, caring, and hard-working. Kevin made us laugh, injecting his witty comments at just the right moment. He loved the ocean and the vessels he built touched countless lives. Wetting a line or whipping the stern across the waters breathed everlasting life into the soils of those who sailed with him.

Kevin fell for his childhood crush Holly, chasing adventures on land and sea, near and far. He welcomed his little princess into the world and created a family with Holly and their beloved daughter, soon after fathering two adoring sons. He could never imagine loving anyone more than he did his kids, until he was blessed with grandchildren. He was a respected leader, amazing uncle, treasured brother, dedicated father, cherished husband and loving Papa. Kevin will be forever missed, he was one of the best if not the best.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Shirley Hatten, and Chester "Buddy" Hatten.

Kevin is survived by his wife Holly Hatten of Soldotna; daughter, Megan Weed and her husband Joseph Mirci of Soldotna; sons, Cory Hatten and his wife Ruby, Chad Hatten and his wife Paige of Soldotna; grandchildren, Rylen Weed, Ryatt Weed, Rawly Weed, Elliott Hatten, Connor Hatten, all of Soldotna, Joey Mirci, Tyson Mirci, and Lola Mirci of Salt Lake City, Utah.

A public visitation will be held on Sunday, April 1, 2018 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. followed by a funeral service at 2:00 p.m. at the Soldotna Bible Chapel in Soldotna. Pastor Kevin Spence will be officiating. A Celebration of Kevin's Life and potluck for family and friends will be held upstairs after the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Go Fund Me account via Facebook, or CU1 Federal Credit Union for Holly Hatten.

Kevin's ashes will be scattered in the Cook Inlet that he loved, at a later date.
