    Kevin was such a positive influence in both of my daughters lives as they grew up with the youth groups at Trinity. They loved him and counted him as a friend. Thanks Kevin for all you did for all of the "kids" at Trinity and their mother too.

  4. Carol Carlson Sinnaeve

    My first husband was a Fireman and I know both of you Bob and Fran. Our boys were work out friends at East High school. My heart goes out to you at this sad time. May God comfort you. Praise the Lord you will see your son again in Heaven.

  5. Gary Omark

    I didn't know Kevin very well but I know he was best friends with Brett Gustafson who used to work for me. Brett was a youth director at Zion Lutheran for a short while after he left my shop. Working with young people was his dream job and I believe it was Kevin's also. Brett passed away about 3 or 4 years ago: Too young. As was Kevin's passing. I have known the Crone family for years and was involved with John and Harry in Boy Scouts. My sympathy to the entire family as you mourn the lose of you loved one; Kevin. God Bless each of you.

    I am so sorry to hear of Kevin‘s passing. I was youth director at Zion Lutheran when Kevin was just starting at Trinity Lutheran. Our youth groups did many things together: softball, broom ball, dances, overnights, etc etc. Kevin and I spent many hours sharing strategies, praying and visiting local high schools together. He was a great guy. He will be missed.

    Kevin was one of my very first friends, way back when we were just 8 or 9. He was very funny! I hadn't seen him for many, many years, but it sounds like he turned out to be a great guy and will be dearly missed. My sympathies to all of you.

  13. Iris (Enneking) Gray

    Kevin was such a great positive influence in my life. I will never forget all the great memories from NYG, softball, youth group, and all the crazy places we took that van! He will be greatly missed. Kevin did the Lord's work here on earth, now he is resting with our Father in heaven.

  14. Kerri Lundberg Eastham

    Kevin was my youth group leader at Trinity years ago, when he was fresh out of college. He was wonderful; he was very patient with a bunch of too-giggley middle school kids. He was laid back and relatable, loading us all in the church van on Wednesday evenings and taking us various places. He made church a place we wanted to be, and he was quick to laugh with us. I can still see him in his office chuckling, and I have many good memories of that time in my life that involve him. My thoughts are with you all during this time.

  15. Kathy Pedersen

    Thank you Kevin, for changing the Trinity youth group around for the better and making it fun again for so, so many years! We always wanted to be a part of all the fun activities. You helped so many people, in so many ways over the years. Kevin was the big brother we never had. We have tons of fun memories to cherish...Bethepage, Camp Lutherdale, softball, the Boundary Waters (THAT was a LONG week), church overnights, and so many more. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family during this very difficult time. P.S. He was my best friend for the important years! (Doreen “knob”) P.S.S. Thanks for putting up with me and Tina for so many years. (Darcie)
