Many miles and our busy lives keep us all afar. I wish we all lived closer. When I talk to people about my cousin, Kevin, I describe him as such a good guy, good-hearted, thoughtful and caring, fun-loving, humorous, hard-working, very generous, and so appreciated. I will miss him very much.
I love you all and I am thinking about you constantly,
Our symphathy goes out to your family on the passing of kevin
Sorry to here of Kevin’s passing. I worked with him in Va Beach. May God be with your family at this time.
We are so sorry for your lose Connie. Kevin will be missed greatly on Cunningham Rd our love prayers and healing to you all.
Wow, Dad, I am in shock to hear that you have passed away. For the last two years, I have been living in Norfolk and Virginia Beach. I had hoped to meet up with you again, but now that is impossible. I noticed that me and your other son, Richard, were not mentioned in your obituary, but you know who we are. Your grandfather, John Harvey Custer, was married to my mom’s (Debbie) grandmother, Carrie Custer for about 30 years. That is how you knew each other, besides being boyfriend and girlfriend in the early 70’s. My mom has pictures of me at your house on Cunningham. She has one with Kevin Michael holding me. She told me when she lived there, you had a yellow boa constrictor that she was afraid of. She said you had two Rotti’s named Roxanne (Peanut) and Micha? I have pictures of you when you came to visit me at Aunt Jackie’s house in New Jersey, and also in Pennsylvania. My mom was on the Tide one day with her husband when they went to a Tides baseball game, when she sat across from Kaitlyn, who she recognized from her name tag and how she looked. My mom never said a word to her, because she wasn’t sure if Kaitlyn knew about her or me. It is strange to have two other brothers and a sister, but not to have met them. Well, Dad, we hope you are at peace, and know you are with our family in heaven. Love, Kelsey Jacqueline Custer Germond (my adopted name from my other dad)
