I have known Kevin since he became National Sales Manager for Atlantic Paste and Glue. It is not often that you meet someone and immediately form a professional and personal bond. From day one I knew Kevin was one of those guys that I was going to like and become personal friends with.

On a professional basis Kevin and I worked very close in order for my company Univar and AP&G to both reap the benefits and neither company be harmed by the agreement.

Kevin and I along with the National Account Manager for AP&G, Robert Stocker, always enjoyed the business side of the relationship, being serious when it was necessary to complete the order and knowing that not far away would be the beginning of the fun side.

In October of 2012, Robert invited me to join Kevin and him on a trip to his family ranch in Laredo. We had such a blast and laughed so much that I do believe we pulled muscles in our stomachs.

Kevin and I talked at least once a week. He was always checking in on me and my family and I would ask him about his babies at home. When he spoke of his children his eyes would light up and you could tell that he loved his children as much as any father could love his children.

Kevin was very excitable and when we spoke he would talk 100 MPH. I had to listen very closely and at times I would have to tell him, “Kevin, slow down, my ears can’t work as fast as your mouth.” He would slow down for a while and then be right back up to 100 MPH again!

Kevin will be missed by all those who knew him including his family, friends and colleagues. There is not doubt that when Kevin gets to Heaven God is going to have to hold up his mighty hand and say, “Kevin, please slow down because my holy ears cannot keep up with your New Jersey mouth!”

Fairwell my friend, you will be missed. I love you and I will see you again one day. Rest in peace my friend.

Having you in my life, for even that short period of time, was a true blessing. Your spirit will remain a part of me always. Thank you for letting me have a small piece of you..xoxo

Phillip Cooper says:

I will always remember a big smile and a hearty “Coop” when he would see me. Kevin was someone I always someone I would look for at our industry meetings and it will be very different without him. While he will be missed he left a lasting impact and it is the impact that matters most. To a great guy.

My deepest condolences to the entire Keane family. Kevin, or Mic, as we used to call him whenever he came down to South Texas will be missed by all who came to know him either professionally or in a different venue. His love for his children always showed beyond all things when asked how his children were doing.

I have lost a great friend but I can never lose the thought of the wonderful times we all spent together hunting or fishing.

Thank you, Kevin for the many wonderful memories.

We will miss you. Rest peacefully my old friend.
