I just watched an episode of Dr. Pimple Popper with Kevin, he seemed like such a great person, very kind and fun! Then at the end of the show, it said he passed away! I immediately looked his obituary up! I’m soo sad for all of his family and friends, and for some reason, I am crying for him. I don’t know how he passed, but I hope it he is at peace, and I pray for his family and friends for the strength to keep living with Kevin in their heart.

I just saw the rerun of DPP with Kevin and just like the other times I have seen it, my heart feels such sorrow because he is gone. He was such a sweetheart and I get such a wave of sadness because he was a good, intelligent, talented, caring, and loving young man. He was very handsome with and without his facial lump... I can't imagine that there wouldn't have been a sweet lady out there for him... This brings to mind the saying. "Only the good die young.". Seems to be so true. I am sorry for the pain and sorrow that the family has been through. I am full of empathy for them. Sincerely, Lisa Booth-Hale

Just re-read Kevin's obituary, and realized that his older brother, Eli, died a year earlier. What great sorrow this poor family has had.

Kevin touched me with his gentle soul, though only through a TV screen. I, too, had hoped to see an update one day, showing us a happy, married with a baby, Kevin who'd taken over his dad's business. So sad that this will never happen.

My heart and thoughts are with you, Olaeta family.

Just finished watching Kevin’s episode with Dr. Lee and my heart is breaking. Though I did not know him personally, I do recognize good people with good hearts and Kevin’s pure soul touched me. I was looking forward to an update of him being blissfully in love and retiring his dad by taking over the family business.

Thinking of him today and keeping his family and friends lifted up in prayer. Rest well, Kevin.

I like so many others felt the need to reach out to your family after I saw Kevin on television last night and let you know how sad I was to hear of Kevin’s passing. What a sweet soul to affect people so much that we are thinking of him still even though some of us never met him. I just wanted to let your family know what a special person he showed himself to be and even though we saw him for only a little bit, he has made an impact and he is still thought about by all that see him.

We were drawn to Kevin’s energy while watching him on TLC. Then we’re deeply saddened to learn of his passing. He was such a handsome and personable man and you could tell how proud he was to work with his dad. We know he has definitely gone from a “jawbreaker to a heartbreaker” in heaven!!! Our deepest condolences!

I didn’t know Kevin, but saw his story and journey with Dr, Lee and was very excited for him when he had his “jaw breaker”.(believe that is how he referred to it) removed.

I just watched a rerun of DPP. I had commented to the person watching with me what a happy, good-hearted and fun-loving guy Kevin appeared to be. We were so happy for him.
When the show ended and his memoriam came up we were shocked. Then we were very saddened. I totally cried. I was so sad that Kevin didn't have the chance to be that heartthrob Dr. Lee said he would be. And she was right too. He was a very good looking guy.
I'm sorry for the loss of Kevin and of his brother the year before. Hugs to Kevin's dad and his entire family. I really am so very sorry. One thing is for sure, he's the brightest star shining down from the sky at night.

After just watching a rerun of TLCs Dr. Pimple Popper, I was saddened to see Kevins memoriam at the end of the show. Kevin seemed to be a handsome, respectful, positive and happy-go-lucky young man. From viewing the segment, Kevins willingness to help anyone in need and always find the good in others was an inspiration to us all. I Just wanted to reach out and send my condolences to his family, I cant begin to comprehend what they are still feeling. The world is a much less happy place for us all and congratulations Kevin on living your life the way we all should...

I'm heartbroken to hear of Kevin's passing. Even as I watched the "before" part of Dr. PP,I recognized the true heart of a kind, responsible, loving young man, and thought, "I wouldn't care about that darned lump." While I know he is in a place of glory, I mourn that some young woman didn't have the opportunity to love and marry your son

We just saw Kevin on the Dr Shiw. We were so happy that she fixed his issue, but when we saw in Memory of, it made us sad. I looked up his passing and it said peacefully from his heart. Our son KEITH, passed on May 12, 2013 suddenly, in his sleep, at the age of 29. From Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. It sounds familiar. We wish you peace, and God Bless Kevin.

I also read Kevin's obituary and I am sending my deepest condolences for your other son you lost as well. No family deserves to lose 2 children and I'm truly broken for all of you. I pray that God wraps His arms around you and comforts you as you adjust to life here on earth without them both. Just knowing one day you will see them again is a comfort we all can hold on to. Sending prayers for mom, dad and all who loved this wonderful young man. God Bless!

Mom, Dad, I know your pain is immeasurable but please know that by just seeing Kevin once, I want to thank you both for taking on God's assignment of introducing to the world, such a beautiful spirit!

My heart sank when I saw the notice at the end of Kevin's episode.

He struck me as a kind, gentle, sweet man, talented and filled with potential...and whose whole life still laid ahead of him. I didn't know him personally, but would've been happy to.

My deepest condolences to his family and other loved ones. You're certainly much more heartbroken than any of us, who knew Kevin briefly from a TV show, can possibly be.

Rest in peace, young man.

My son is in a Heavy Metal band and has long hair and a passion for music. He was born on May 18 1990.

What I found was a beautiful kind soul in your son. He is now playing the guitar for the angels.
