Kevin graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Civil Engineering and obtained Professional Engineering licenses in both Illinois & Indiana. Kevin owned & operated DU-CON, Inc. for 20 years. He was immensely proud of the Annual Anthony and Marcella Scholarship he established at the University of Illinois College of Engineering that is available for any student from Clinton County perusing a degree in Engineering. Kevin was an outgoing guy who liked fine dining, and road trips across the country with his wife and dog Scout. He always had a hard time passing up the opportunity to stop at a bakery and he loved going out to listen to live music. When live music wasn’t available, Kevin would never hesitate to take over the juke box and play great music on his own. He enjoyed hunting and fishing trips to Alaska, especially the Annual Fishing Freak Out with his buddies. He loved celebrating ALL holidays, especially Mardi Gras in Soulard & St Patrick’s Day in Dogtown. For a few years he organized an annual Christmas caroling fund raiser to benefit the local food bank in Monroe City, MO. He enjoyed playing euchre & watching Gunsmoke. Kevin planned to have a cabin in Alaska & a beach house in Florida. He never met a stranger and will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
