Kevin you are a class act. Such a great example of a loving husband and father, intelligent businessman, wonderful friend and all around terrific guy. He had a way of always adding life to any situation. I don't understand why He decided to take Kevin so soon but I am just a simple man. I do have faith and confidence that one day when I meet my Maker, Kevin will be there buying the first round. Kevin, we love you. Jacquie, we love you and pray for His warm embrace around all of you. God Bless.

Kevin was a great inspiration to all of us in the Iowa FFA! He was a great person to know and work with. And it was an amazing feeling to have a National FFA officer from Iowa! He made us so proud. Please know the positive impact that he made within the FFA and that that inspiration has carried through to our children many years later.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all his family and friends during this time.

25 years ago when I was a State FFA officer from Maryland and National FFA Officer Candidate, Kevin was National FFA President. Back then, he was an inspiration to many across the country and to me personally. It is clear that in the last 25 years, Kevin has had a lasting impact on folks around the world. This should be a continuing inspiration to all of us to have a lasting impact on others. I thank God for his life and inspiration, and I pray for strength for his wife, his children, and his extended family.

Although I never worked with Kevin, I was fortunate to inherit the legacy of his assignment to the UK . Without exception his colleagues, customers and industry co-workers would reminisce of times they had spent with Kevin with fond memories. The word most often used was 'great' - as in 'great guy',' 'great boss' , 'great bloke' .
He left a mark of warmth here in the UK and was held in esteem by all those that met him.
I did experience one 'night on the town' with Kevin- and indeed he was a 'great guy'.

Kevin was such a great guy to work with, professional, nice and warm. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to work closely with him for these past years. He lighted up the road for the Ag group at AmCham China to work together on a partnership program and the whole group will be missing him ever.

Jacquie & Family - I looked through a couple of "old" college albums and it brought back a lot of great times we all had at Sigma Kappa. Many of us had different dates at all the House Parties and Formals, but as Mary said we all knew, Kevin. We are so sorry for your loss and suffering. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5 Let us know if there is anything we can do for you. Greg and Denae Rusk and Family
