Kevin was born July 15, 1958, in Atascadero, Calif. He grew up in Hermosa Beach, graduated from Redondo High and worked in restaurants prior to moving to Crescent City with family in April 1978. While working as a hot plant operator he met his future wife in 1979; they married in 1981, and he fathered two daughters. He later pursued a lifelong career as business owner and technician in automotive repair.
Kevin was an avid cook and enjoyed sharing his tips, tricks and more importantly, meals with loved ones. Spending time with his grandchildren, playing guitar and ballroom dancing were some of his favorite pastimes. Camping around his birthday was his preferred vacation and celebrated with family and friends who attended each year. Kevin touched many lives and to those that knew him, his door was always open.
He is survived by his wife, Christy; daughters, Erica (Micah) and Elizabeth (Brian); sisters, Diana (Bryan) Stanley, Karen (Jeff) Harner, Annette (Steve) Taylor; grandchildren; many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Donna Page and David Toomer.
Graveside services are scheduled on Friday, March 15, 2013, at 11 a.m. at the Del Norte County Veteran’s Cemetery. A potluck fellowship to immediately follow at the Grace Lutheran Church social hall, 188 East Cooper Street, Crescent City.
