D. Kevin Harlow

June 21, 1948-January 9, 2020

BETTENDORF-David Kevin Harlow, 71, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on January 9, 2020 at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. Cremation services were performed in Rochester. A memorial gathering will be held on Saturday, February 8 from 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. at Pinnacle Country Club- 11928 Knoxville Road, Milan, Illinois. Memorials may be made in memory of Kevin Harlow to the Mayo Clinic Department of Development- 200 First Street SW, Rochester, Minnesota 55905.

David, known as Kevin to his family and friends, was born June 21, 1948 to Ila (Todd) and Maurice Harlow in Redfield, South Dakota. While growing up, Kevin worked at the family farm and enjoyed hunting with his brothers. He graduated in 1972 from the University of South Dakota with an MBA. After graduation, work led him to the Quad Cities where he met Andrea Williams. Andrea and Kevin were married on June 22, 1974 in East Moline. Kevin's career in sales began at JC Penney in Northpark Mall then progressed to medical sales with Davis and Geck and finally Zimmer Orthopedics. His long and successful career as a salesman was marked by numerous awards for his accomplishments.

Kevin enjoyed spending time with his family and was especially proud of his children and grandchildren. He was a great friend to many and always had a good story to tell or witty remark to share. Boating on the Mississippi River was a favorite family pastime for forty years. Once a year, a large group of family and friends would gather at the Lake of the Ozarks for a week of boating and fun. Kevin also loved cars especially the 1957 Thunderbird he restored and several Corvettes he owned. But, golfing was his favorite hobby. Belonging to Pinnacle Country Club allowed him to golf often and enjoy many great friendships he formed there. Finally, spending time at our condo in Florida brought him great pleasure. Sun, warmth, and a game of bocce or several hands of cribbage made his day. Kevin will be greatly missed by his family and his many friends.

Kevin is survived by his wife; his son, Kyle Harlow, Davenport; daughter Ashley (Seth) Stone; grandson, Dylan Stone; and granddaughter, Keeley Stone- all of Adel, Iowa; brothers: Mark (Carole) Harlow, Aberdeen South Dakota, Todd Harlow of East Moline and several nieces and nephews.
