KEVIN JOHN STEPHENS

KEVIN JOHN STEPHENS

STEPHENS, KEVIN JOHN August 22, 1987 – August 11, 2015 It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved son, brother, partner and friend. Kevin was born in Red Deer Alberta to Bill Stephens (Lori) and Diana Reynolds (Bruce). Kevin lived a life full of exuberance, passion, generostiy and kindness. When Kevin was a boy he learned to play guitar. Music would always be a love for Kevin, and many years later would inspire Kevin to play his ukulele all over the world. Kevin was involved in air cadets as a boy, as well as hockey and baseball. It was at age 18, when Kevin discovered a passion for diving and the water. He became an accomplished Dive Instructor, which took him all over the world. The love for travel then inspired Kevin to become a tour guide as well. Kevin was 25 when he worked for a year for Tucan Travel in Asia. He took people to 6 countries for 49 day trips. It was on his first excursion that he met his love and partner, Rhiannon, who then continued to journey with Kevin through life. Kevin was a man with strong humanitarian desires. Throughout his world travels, Kevin always took the time to leave the country better that when he arrived. Through heroic measures on a beach in Kelowna, Kevin’s heart was able to hang on for 3 days, in order to provide organ donation to many people. It was always Kevin’s desire to help make a difference, even in the end. Kevin leaves to mourn his parents, partner Rhiannon, sister Sarah, brother Justin, brother Gavin, aunts, uncles, grandparents and nieces.  He also leaves to mourn numerous friends in over 45 countries. A Celebration of Kevin’s life will be held at Willow Park Church on Saturday August 15, 2015 at 1 pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to a marine preservation organization which will be announced on  the “We Love You Kevin” facebook page.
