Chuck, Imogene, Jeff,

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of hour son/brother. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I have such good memories of Kevin as a teenager learning go play the French Horn, and then mastering this instrument. He was a talented and well-respected musician. Know that Kevin left a music legacy with the Kellam HS Band, the Southern Knights, and at First Baptist Church. Kevin’s music spirit will live on in the hearts of many fellow musicians forever.

Fondly, Weeta Bell-Phillips

Dawn and boys, I was stunned and saddened to hear of your loss. I was privileged to play with him in the praise band at church. I know that the pain of loss will never end,but will lessen as you remember the good times you all had together. Keep him in your hearts and remember that you will see him again in heaven.

Dear Warren Family,

We were deeply saddened to hear of Kevin’s passing. The Hickory Track Staff and Team always knew Kevin to be kind, caring and supportive. The track and field community is closely knit and Kevin’s presence will be missed. Our Pole Vaulters, especially, had a chance to be around Kevin extensively and feel tremendous sadness. Personally, having spent a great deal of time around Kevin, I will miss him as well. He was a fan of the sport and it was obvious that his athletes were well prepared, but beyond that, you always knew he wanted all the athletes, not just the Kempsville kids, to perform well. We knew Kevin to be a good man and will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

Sincerely, on behalf of the Hickory Track and Field Team,

Patrick Troia

Head Track Coach
