Kevin was very proud of his children and loved them and his grandchildren.

Kevin married Becky Tupper in 1976. They had a daughter, Tenley. After their separation, Kevin married Cathy Lowman and they had a son, Ryan. After a few years of the single life, Kevin married his current wife, Vicki (Snodgrass) Reiber in 2004. They resided on the McNally Ranch for those 14 years.

Kevin was employed by the State of Idaho as a senior log scaler for most of his working life.

He enjoyed spending time at home, with all his friends and family. He liked to take drives around the county, grouse hunting or just sightseeing. Kevin was known as a very thoughtful, caring person. He took excellent care of his mother and unt Sal in later years, and was caregiver to his wife, Vicki for the last two years of marriage.

Kevin liked playing golf until he had to stop due to medical issues. He enjoyed helping with the State scaling contest and the scholarship program with his Class of '70.
