I am so sad to hear about Kevin. Praying for Peace for the Eblen family during this sad and difficult time. What an outstanding business man with a supportive family. Such a painful loss, I am so sorry.

It's been many years since we crossed paths, but I know Kevin was an outstanding leader, mentor, and friend to many... plus a great, great professional. We extend our thoughts and prayers to his family.

I was saddened to hear news of Kevin. My prayers and thoughts are with his family. I remember meeting Kevin when he was in Beijing as part of the Midwest China Hub Commission in 2010. I had other opportunities to cross paths with him in Beijing - and I'm so glad I did. As a fellow Midwesterner living in China, Kevin's good natured ways made my day. I was struck by not only his business acumen, but his heartfelt efforts

My sympathies go out to the family of Kevin. Although it's been awhile since our class graduated in 1984, I can still remember riding the same "country kids" bus and all the activities in 4-H, etc... He sure went on to make a name for himself, and put Creston, IA on the map. Thoughts and prayers go out to Jackie and the kids, he obviously loved you all very much!!

My thoughts and prayers go out to Kevin's entire family. I feel fortunate that many years ago our paths crossed. We had so much fun together for a couple of summers camping at McKinley, truck & tractor pulls, county fairs and so on.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time of sorrow. Celebrate the man Kevin was and the good-will he brought to all of those he met. I have had many former FFA students email me with..."I remember when you introduced me to Kevin...he made such an impact on me and in my life". He turned heads with his amazing ability to speak and think on his feet. He made people smile with his quick wit and sense
