Just wanted to tell you how much I miss you! Baby this is so hard and I don’t know that I’m strong enough to do it. I’m trying I really am but I miss you so much it hurts. I miss those beautiful blue eyes looking at me, I miss that beautiful infectious smile of yours, I miss the way you made me feel safe and loved like nobody else could. I just miss everything. Life just isn’t the same without you here by my side. I don’t understand why God took you from me and I’m so angry that he did. I’m truly trying not to be so angry but I am. I love you baby and I always will until I take my last breath. Please come visit me and give me signs your still with me. I love you baby forever and always!

Kevin man...it's so hard to believe you're gone! I can not imagine what your wife (Cindy) is dealing with daily, since she last heard your laugh or seen your contagious smile! All I know how important it is for us to remind her daily, she's got her loving family and we've always got her! I know it may never be enough and CERTAINLY not the same, but I can hope and pray things get easier for her. We miss you everyday kev! I'll never forget when you fell almost every family gathering, or all your "dad jokes" and we would laugh and roll our eyes. But you were the life of the party, and life certainly won't be the same without you! You lit up a light in my beautiful cousin, and I could never thank you enough kev! She met her soul mate years ago when I was just a little girl, and loved eachother more and more over the years. Grew a strong bond that I can only hope to come in my future! Rest Easy Kev! Check on my grandpa, grandma, uncle and friends for me! Most of all I hope the family is doing okay, praying for Cindy daily!! Love you all family!

his Life

Kevin

Kevin was strong but gentle, loved everyone, would give his shirt off his back to help someone and had a heart of gold! No matter what was happening he always had a smile on his face. He had a smile that would light up any room. He had the brightest most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen. He was a truly wonderful man.

He was a great welder with numerous certifications. There wasn’t to many people that could match his abilities in the welding trade. His father Melburn  taught him when he was young and he became one out of 3 with one welding certification he had. He earned a coin from the US Military that is usually only given to people in the military for his work and contributions in developing special project military trailers. Really he was good at everything he did and was known as a jack of all trades.

He loved all three of his children Chaz, Andrew and Chancie with all his heart and cherished every moment with them. His grandkids Natalie, Ezra and Hadleigh were his life and he loved spending time with them and spoiling them. He was looking so forward to meeting his newest granddaughters Adaline & Oakley and now he is their guardian angel.

He was and is my hero and knight in shining armor! The love we shared was like no other. He was my soulmate and best friend. I miss him dearly and don’t know how I will make it in this world without him. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of him or that I don’t talk to him. I love you Kevin forever and always! Until we meet again and walk hand in hand together again.

He loved his mom and dad Melburn & Willie Sue Phillips. He often told me many many stories of him working with his dad on the family farm. I never got to meet his dad but if he was anything like my beloved Kevin I would have loved him. He had to be a wonderful man to raise such a great son. His mom Willie Sue was a sweetheart and loved to sing gospel songs. Kevin loved to hear her sing. She was a special woman and Kevin adored her. 

Kevin looked up to his big brother Anthony so much. I heard many stories of their fights but also of Kevin’s precious memories of them growing up. He had so much pride for his little sister Alexis! He was so proud of her accomplishments. His eyes lit up every time he seen her! They had a special bond that couldn’t be broken.

He fit right in with my family just like he had always been apart of our family. Him and my mom Jeanette would play tricks on each other all the time. And Kevin and my dad Billy was close. Kevin loved him as a second Dad and my Dad him as a son. Kevin would use the excuse that he was sure my dad had some project he needed his help on to be able to go to their house. My brother Billy Don and him were very close and Kevin thought of him as his little brother. Kevin picked and played with everyone in the family Aunts, Uncles and cousins.

Kevin was so proud to be an uncle. First to our nephew and niece Chance and Paige which spent many many weeks and weekends at our house. He thought of them as his own. He tried to be a great role model for them and shape their lives in a good way. Then his baby sister had kids and gave him another niece and nephew Colton and Evelyn. He was overjoyed and happy to be an uncle again. He would always give them things that usually wouldn’t get to play with when he would see them like a laser light or something that made a lot of noice. 

He had several aunts, uncles and cousins. I heard many stories about the younger years with his cousins such as Toni, Shelley, Melissa, Crocket, Cookie, Joe and so many others! How Melissa would come down from Chicago and he would ride her on his four wheeler and hit as many mud puddles as he could and when they would get back she would be covered from head to toe with mud. Or the many many stories about him and Crocket that he said they were inseparable for years. How they got stopped by the police on four wheelers, went fishing and camped at the cabin, hunting to sharing in each other’s happiness when both of their first born was born. So many precious memories with his family I was told about over the years.
