Kevin was born September 1, 1970 in California to Gordon and Ruth (Dow) White.  He grew up in Santa Ana, CA where he attended Orange Lutheran High School for two years and then graduated from Magnolia High School in 1990. He enjoyed playing high school football and baseball. After high school, he started working for the City of Santa Ana. He then enlisted in the United States Navy in March 1992 and was part of the original crew on the USS Barry. During this time, on July 12, 1992, he married Anissa Lloyd. He worked in the Engineering Department and after two years of active duty, he served four years in the Navy Reserve. After his honorable discharge, Kevin and Anissa lived in Arkansas and Kevin worked for Travis Lumber in Mansfield.  In June of 1997, they moved to Yankton and began their family. Kevin first worked for Marquardt Trucking and then Wilson Trailer.  In 1999, he started his career at Hydro where he was currently employed as a fork lift operator. 

Kevin loved playing slow pitch softball, bowling, golfing, Call of Duty, and MTG card game.  He had an extensive sports card collection. He enjoyed watching WWE wrestling and was a diehard LA Dodgers, 49ers, Michigan, and Navy Midshipmen fan.  Kevin was a proud supporter of his niece, Aubrie and nephew, Evan in their sporting events.  He was a big kid with big heart who loved his family and loved to goof around.  Kevin was so kind and so loving and was always willing to help anyone in need.  He will be greatly missed.
