  • Kevin , safe journey my friend. May the great spirit welcome you and may you walk with Him among the stars.

  • Our condolences go out to the Oates family. We knew Kevin as “Problem Child ” but he was anything but a problem. Kevin was a nice guy and a good friend. May God hold you all real close to His bosom. Two wheels, one love.
