Junior Kemp didn't know a stranger. He lit up any room he walked in to and kept you laughing. He lived life to the fullest and he definitely made sure that you knew you were loved. He was your biggest fan! He loved his retro video games, drawing, playing softball and especially dancing and singing karaoke. Junior stood up for his friends and always had their backs. He wanted everyone to be happy and get along. If there was a problem he wanted to help you talk through it and fix it.
Junior and Angie met in middle school and she instantly developed a crush on him. Junior was the middle school and high school heart throb. All of the girl's loved him. But, it was Angie that eventually that stole his heart. They became friends through mutual friends and family and after high school, in 2010, they started dating. Angie was the love of Junior's life and he was hers. When they started as a couple, they instantly became inseparable. They slowly began to build their life together. They moved into their first home after a year of being together. Working together along the way to start their life together. In March 2016, after many years of friends asking and asking when he would pop the question (lol), he proposed to Angie at his birthday celebration, declaring his love for her in front of friends and family and everyone at Bleu Garten. They were married in six months at Orr Family Farm, again in front of great family and friends.
Angie and Junior just celebrated their 3rd wedding anniversary on Tuesday, October 1st and announced their excitement of their baby that's on the way. Baby Kemp is due to be born in April of 2020. Junior was so very excited about the pregnancy and the birth of their baby. He wanted to tell the world the second he found out! He wanted to be involved in every aspect and was in the process of drawing the pictures for a coloring book he was making for the baby. They were scheduled to find out the gender this coming week and were both so excited. Junior and Angie had just talked about baby names and Angie plans to honor Junior by using the name he chose for the baby.
Junior loved his family so very much and he was the rock they leaned on. He was the big brother that was always there when they needed him. He was the only boy and loved all of his sisters with everything he had. He loved being Uncle Junior to all kids that crossed his path and he loved being there for all his nieces and nephews and giving them his advice and long life talks. Junior was loved and adored by his entire family. His second family was his softball family. He played for the Brewers, Aces and Side Pocket. He loved playing ball and he was an amazing ball player. He spent the last night of his life playing ball with some of his best friends. He kept everyone laughing all night at his jokes and all the crazy things he said.
Junior was taken from us suddenly on October 5th by a senseless act of violence. He leaves behind his wife and their baby that is on the way. Junior did not have health or life insurance and his wife definitely needs all of the help and support she can get to cover the abundance of expenses she is facing.
Anything is much appreciated and will be a huge relief and help for Angie. We are so thankful for the out pour of your love, prayers and support at this time of such a great loss.
