Kevin Alan Macken passed away September 7, 2013, in Madison, Wisconsin. He was born in Sacramento, California, on December 4, 1959. Beloved son of Majel and Gerald Macken and brother of Marlys, Steven and James Macken, and loving father of Jamie and Aaron Macken, he will be missed greatly by his family and loved ones, especially by his nephew, Christopher Martin-Macken; his aunts, uncles and cousins in California, Wisconsin and Minnesota; and his many friends in California and Wisconsin. Kevin will be especially remembered for his warmth, kindness, wonderful laugh, sense of humor, and artistry with wood; his passion for the 49ers, music, and barbequing with his family; and his generosity and compassion for others. A carpenter and licensed contractor, Kevin loved the out doors--particularly fishing, swimming and kayaking on the American River and, after moving to Wisconsin in 1994, the lakes of Dane County. He was athletic and enjoyed playing golf and shooting hoops with family and friends. He graduated from Bella Villa High School in Fair Oaks, California, where he played football and baseball. He will be deeply missed by all who loved him. He was preceded in death by his mother and grandparents. A memorial service is being planned for a later date. Inquiries may be made to Cress Funeral Home, Madison, Wisconsin.
