Kevin Ploof
May 11, 1960 – October 2, 2007

Kevin was both a realist and romantic who touched other’s lives with vibrant color.  His larger than life persona and quirky humor attracted people from all walks of life: he went from steel worker to licensed massage therapist adding and keeping friends along the way.  Hunting, fishing and hiking went hand in hand with reading, debating and this insatiable curiosity about life.  He soared with the eagle and saw the world in wonderful layers just waiting to be explored.  Kevin wanted to experience anything and everything.  He still is.
