To the family,

We express our most heartfelt sympathy to you in your loss of Kevin. He was always there to help young people in whatever way he could. He gave individual instruction to my daughter Natasha in the shot put and discus, and was very instrumental in her success at Bruton High School. He was willing to give his undivided attention to any student willing to listen and work hard. We will always remember Kevin for his kind words and warm smile. He will be greatly missed by all, and he will remain forever special to me and my family.
God bless you all,
Coach Burnette

Kevin was a great man with a huge smile. He always served and supported others with his time through his love for them using sports as one of the main methods to reach them. From the time he completed high school he was teaching and coaching others in football. basketball and track. He will be missed by the community as very few come along to GIVE as he has. RIP Big Fella!
