He was born the son of Cristal Kaye Atkins & the late Kevin Stewart. Kevin was raised in the city of Detroit for much of his childhood, adolescence, and early adult life and he expressed an enduring love for his city. He attended Detroit Public schools for most of his educational requirements. In addition, he had a few educational associations to his native city of Flint. After receiving his GED, he attended Wayne Community College to obtain an Associate in General Education Studies. Kevin left prominent footprints wherever his path led him. At the age of 23, Kevin’s path led him to the city of St. Paul, Minnesota where he resided for the next 10 years of his life. He was employed at the Minneapolis Convention Center for over 7 years. Kevin took pride in his job, and he detailed this personal endeavor as one of the happiest times in his life. In 2008, Kevin returned to Michigan to become a permanent resident to the city of Flint. He had a love for cooking and with this love he decided to enroll at Mott Community College to study the Culinary Arts. Overtime, Kevin’s faith in God continued to grow and it manifested in the way that he presented himself, in his movements, and how he interacted with others. His internal light began to glow, and it was visible from the outside looking in. That light inside of him created another direction for his life and his previous choices were no more. Kevin became a member of Redeeming Grace Ministries, and this decision provided him with Hope, and it gave him a new-found purpose, in which provided him with a new path to his salvation. He had a strong love for his family and friends and made several friends over the course of his life. His love represented loyalty, obligation, & admiration. Kevin left our family with a Legacy of Strength, Courage and Perseverance and that shall never be forgotten or taken for granted.
