  18. So sorry family we all will not be able to be with you on Thursday, April 23, to say goodbye to our cousin who meant so much to so many.

    Kevin was an icon, and he touched us all in so many different ways as a Son, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, Friend, and Tax Man!

    Always the life of our gatherings, none of our Dinner Parties and Family Reunions will be the same without him, as we will miss his presence so much along with our other family members who are no longer with us.

    To the immediate family of our departed cousin, we love you, and we loved Kevin.

    To our remaining family and friends, as Kevin would want, let us not let time or distance keep us from loving one another, ever!

  21. I met Kevin in 1969 along with Gregory Pipkin introduced us…2 of the best friends in my life have now reunited in heaven. We shared a lot of good times and have maintained contact through the years I dropped in on Kevin the day before his 60th birthday and I am glad that I had a chance to spend a few moments with K.D one more time. I am saddened by His passing and send prayers and Love from the Venable family to the Dunson family. Kevin will be missed by all.

  22. We met Kevin at CTB/McGraw-Hill and we were more than friends, we were family. Although we only knew each other for about 5 years, we feel we shared a lifetime of experiences, embracing us with his deep compassion and kind support throughout the day. He made us laugh and we enjoyed his wit and charm. He truly lit up the room for everyone and will be sorely missed. Our joy was making him laugh. Kevin was the joy of our lives and we are sure that joy was apparent to all his family! With sincere condolences

  23. RIH KD. You wi.ll be missed at the 500 race this year. It won’t be the same. Love you bro. You were so kind and funny
