Kevin Glen Rich, 61, of McDavid, Florida passed away on Thursday, June 27, 2019.
He was born on December 4, 1957 in Daytona, Florida to parents, Harvey Edwin Rich and Mary Louise Mathis and graduated from Eaton Rapids High School, Class of 1977. Kevin served in the United States Marine Corp as a baker. He held many different jobs including, a tree surgeon, Mr. Mom, a bridge builder and a farmer. Some of his greatest accomplishments were providing for his family, living life to the fullest and being the best father a family could hope for. We have many fond memories of the many river trips and being around the farm.
He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Deborah Lucille Rich; his parents; his grandmother, Ruby Mathis; brothers, Douglas Hampton Rich, Barry Earl Rich and Brian Keith Rich and house mother, Wilma Bailey.
He is survived by his daughter, Christine Ann Rich; brothers, Patrick A. Rich, Donald E. Rich and Daniel Lee Rich; sister, Debbie Rich; house sisters, Suzanne O’Brien and Renee Evans; best friends, Jason Lamb, Randy Bailey, Marion Bailey and Eunice Bailey; close family friend, Seema Jeter and Baby Rich, his dog.
Kevin was so full of life. He never met a stranger he didn’t befriend and loved all of his animals, four dogs, 60 chickens, nine honey beehives and an adopted goat. The VFW Home in Eaton Rapids, Michigan has many great memories of his childhood. He was the neighborhood Dad to all of the children and he will be deeply missed by all the lives he has touched. The love and memory of him will always be in our hearts.
A Graveside Service will be held on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at 2:00pm at Bay Springs Full Gospel Church Cemetery, 10351 County Road 97A, McDavid, Florida 32568.
