  6. Kevin,

    I was thinking of how young we were when we met and I narrowed it down to 8 years old. You were my closest friend and I know eventually High School and beyond led us in different directions, but through the miracle of social media, we reconnected and have enjoyed years of communicating about many similar topics of interest. I knew you always have been a man of faith and I was glad to see you had continued that. Your love, devotion and dedication to your Sons was evident from the beginning and you can rest easy knowing that they will continue on in your memory with those same values as they all appear to be fine young men! I will miss our communication and the fact I was never able to plan a camping trip so we could get away and catch up! Rest easy my friend. You will be missed and never forgotten!

  7. Kevin, I enjoyed our time at the beach. So glad you are a part of the crazy Moore family. You are very special and now you can be at peace with all your family of Gods children.

  8. My love goes out to you uncle I will miss you our time was short but a happy time indeed I’m glad to have met you may we meet again someday

  9. I enjoyed Kevin’s company in high school. We had many great conversations and I am happy that he had such a good family and experience here, in his life. I pray for his family and friends as they will miss him and I am happy to have been able to have good memories with Kevin.. R.I.P Kevin. I will see you again.

  10. I have known Kevin since 3rd grade at Sonora Elementary in Costa Mesa. I believe I was in Girl Scouts with his sister Katie way back then. We stayed friends all through high school and he was always easy to talk to. We graduated in the CMHS class of ‘84 together. I even found a photo at my 16th birthday party with Kevin. When we reconnected on FB years ago, I sent him a couple of photos one of which I noticed in the photos today. We had differing opinions on some politically-fueled topics but none the less stayed in touch off and on. I hope he is at peace now looking at all the love that has come his way. Blessings to his family, his boys and all of those he cared for.

  11. Aloha from Maui Hawaii … the last state Kevin wanted to visit to complete his U.S. visits … he & I spoke about his dream to visit with you boys, Kian, Kyle & Kael. He spoke often about his love & pride for you 3 boys. You were his world. Kevin had such a genuine & kind heart, he’s already greatly missed. We went to CMHS together. He’ll live on in our hearts & memories forever. Rest in Love Dear Kevin. Sending his entire Ohana healing prayers.

  12. My bro my friend. So glad we were reunited on this side of heaven. Now you’re reunited with the rest of the family. I miss you deeply and will miss our marathon convos. Your heart was so big….what a heavy load you carried for those you loved. Thank you Jesus for bringing peace and rest to my brother.

  13. To Kevin’s family, my sincere condolences. I knew Kevin from CMHS. We had several classes together and I called him my brother! He was a great listener and made classes fun! I still have some of the funny notes and pictures he wrote! He was a great guy! He continually thank my husband and I for our service.(Military and Fire Service. I remember he loved the ocean and it was so obvious later in his life how much he loves his family. God bless you all! Sincerely, Rita (Ramos) Zbylut

  14. Couldn’t ask for a better high school, CIF worthy, doubles partner in a sport we were forced to make the best…and we did together. Miss you my friend!
