Kevin Ross Kerns

Kevin R. Kerns, 65, passed away on May 31, 2020. Kevin was born in Akron, Ohio to the late Ross and Martha Kerns on April 26, 1955 and worked for Owens Corning for 40 years, where he was currently a Senior Technician.

His hobbies included restoring late model cars and trucks from the 70’s, listening to 70’s music, carpentry, and woodworking. Kevin was considered an all-around handyman, who could fix just about anything.

He had a servants’ heart for his family and friends. His grandchildren were the apple of his eye. Kevin was his children’s protector, who was pure and loyal of heart. His charm and humor were contagious and those who knew him, loved spending time with him. Kevin was a man of principle, who truly loved and honored his family.

He was preceded in death by his brother, William Kerns.

Kevin is survived by his wife of 45 years, Robin; children, Brandy (Joe) Myers-Blevins, Rachel (Don) May-Sine and Kristina (Robert) Cowling; grandchildren, Kailey and Alyssa Myers, Shelby and Bryan May, Austen Grooms and Braeden Cowling; sisters, Kay Strickland, Sherre (George) Mayes, Shelia (Jim) Kroah, Lucy (Scott) Hall; special family friend, Doug Bryant; many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
