I too think next years poker run should be ran in honor of Kevin. I was there with one of the sponsors and he has sponsored this event since it first started. I can see what we can do. I don't think it would be a problem, but i do think it should be dedicated in his memory. Craig I am glad you are doing better and i wish you a speedy recovery, just like everyone else I am sorry for the loss of kevin the couple times i spoke with him at the cincy poker run last year I could tell he was a genuine person. If you need anything or just want to talk let me know. R.I.P. godspeed kevin

Craig, I am very sorry for the loss of your good friend, and my wife and I send our condolences to his family and loved ones.
Wishing you a speedy recovery, both physically and mentally.

It is said that one's greatest strength can also be their biggest weakness. Words to remember always.

Such an unfortuante accident.

Prayers that his friends and family find comfort.

RIP Kevin and a speedy recovery to Craig. We were just around to corner when the accident happend at Camp Earl Wallace. I did not know Kevin but would like to thank everyone who has told what type of a person he was. He sound like a great guy who was very giving. I agree that nobody would want this event canceled especially a person who ran in it every year. Prayer's to all involved

The evening of the accident at SOTW we recognized those who were basically first responders to the site and thanked them for their heroic efforts at the accident

these two pictures have all those that that were first on scene and tried to help

Kevin is in the black shirt and blue jeans

again Kevin was a hero that day
