He was married to Missy Eurich Finkbeiner from 1988 to 1991. For the past 24 years, Kevin cherished his companion, Grace Brown. He was very proud of his children and his family members. Kevin enjoyed many farming jobs throughout the years. Helping friends and neighbors on their land and with their animals was a huge past time of his. Kevin was currently employed at the Rolette Public School. He enjoyed being around people and helping others. He was the president of the Sand Lake Trail Club, which was a huge enjoyment to Kevin. He was always eager to visit with anyone he came across, especially his family and friends. Kevin enjoyed the outdoors, camping, fishing, hunting, gardening, and his horses. One of his greatest accomplishments was building a wagon with his children, which gave him another opportunity to share the horses with others. He enjoyed cooking, especially with his cast iron and dutch ovens while out on trail rides; no one went hungry with Kevin around. He will be greatly missed by his family members and many friends throughout the community. Kevin is survived by his companion of 24 years, Grace Brown of Rolette; children, Ashley Eurich of Minneapolis, MN, Logan Beaver of Tampa, FL, Alexandria (Jesse) Woeste of Mandan, Heather Brown of Devils Lake, Everett Brown of Rolette, Clayton Brown of Rolette, and Joel Brown of Rolette; siblings, Carl (Lori) Beaver of Rolette, Steven (Judee) Amble of Douglas, WY, and Tracey (Maynard) Hall of Willow City; in-laws, David and Sarah Brown of Devils Lake; sister-in-laws, Taya Brown of Devils Lake and Alicia (Sam) Hoffart of Sioux Falls, SD; many nieces and nephews; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
