Kevin D. Mimms Jr. was called home to be with The Lord on Friday May 1, 2020. Salvation is our reward for completing our assignment here on earth, and Lil Kevin exceeded expectations, completing his mission in less time than most of us.
Kevin had a great love for children, beginning with his own, extending to all he met and he excelled at coaching and teaching life lessons and basketball to hundreds of boys and girls. Kevin loved them and the kids and their families loved him just as well.
Kevin turned his life to Christ at an early age, which gave him the foundation to give to others. Everyone whose life he touched, can share a story of him giving generously to those who had the least and needed the most. He was always humble when lending a helping hand to family and friends.
In addition to Coaching and teaching Kevin was an entrepreneur operating lawn mowing, snow plowing and home remodeling businesses along with several other ventures including catering.
