Life Story / Obituary


Age 6, passed away Tuesday, October 1st, at home, in the arms of his parents. Services will be held on Sunday, October 6th at 3pm at the Michigan Ave Academy, 600 E Michigan Ave in Paw Paw. Kevin was born in Scottsdale, AZ, and moved to Paw Paw at 5 months old. He was an extremely funny, smart, and noisy child, who loved anything related to cars, cooking, home improvement, and Star Wars. Shortly before turning 3 years old, Kevin was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma cancer, and spent the last 3 1/2 years fighting this horrible disease. Kevin's strength was evident, as he fought it off twice, before finally passing during the third occurrence. Kevin is survived by his parents, Mark and Kelly; sisters: Shannon and Addison of Paw Paw; grandparents: Harold Linder of Anthem, AZ, Deborah Tinker of Paw Paw, and James Tinker of Phoenix, AZ; as well as cousins, aunts and uncles, too numerous to list here. Please visit Kevin’s personal web page at, where you can archive a favorite memory or photo of him and sign his online guestbook.
