Kevin John Keippel

On November 27th my brother Kevin Keippel passed away. He had been in the hospital for a week fighting pneumonia. He fought hard up until the very end. 

Kevin was a dedicated father who loved his children with all his heart. Logan and Chi where his entire world. Kevin was a loving son, who was always there for his parents. Bill (Mr. Bill) and Judi (Momma J) will forever miss their baby boy. Kevin and his ex-wife Jennifer were loving friends who were co-parenting their children together. Kevin was a cherished Uncle to Britney and Brandon. And to me he was my little brother, he was my best friend, he was my partner, he was a pain in my ass. But I loved him with all of my heart.   My world is missing a big piece now.  

Through his very short 44 years with us he touched many lives and was loved by many. Many knew him as Death, and the music he loved. He was loved by many as Ghostly Death with his online family.

There has been many kind words and love and condolences sent these last few days, that words cannot describe how grateful we are. We are now faced with the unexpected cost of saying goodbye. We would appreciate any monetary gift you may be able to make. All money raised will be used for Kevin’s final expenses and memorial.

On behalf of the entire Keippel family and beyond we thank you for all your support, love, kindness, and friendship and look forward to a better time when we can all get together to properly celebrate Kevin’s life.
