Kevin was born on September 23, 1960, to Pete and Jackie Perschon. Kevin resided in Murray, Utah, most of his life. He started an auto body shop out of his garage and built Kevin's Auto Body & Paint into a very successful business. He enjoyed camping, boating, traveling, and cars. Everyone that came into Kevin's life fell in love with him. He was very personable, extremely charming, and had a great sense of humor. His favorite topic of conversation was himself. He was always thinking, creating, and inventing. Kevin is a one-of-a-kind person. He loved life and enjoyed it to the fullest. He is a fighter and a survivor. The nurses at LDS Hospital named him the "Medical Marvel," and he was very proud of that title. Kevin is survived by his parents, wife, two children, siblings, Sylvia (Dave), Pam (Mark), Scott (Susan), Lisa (Grant), and Craig. He was also survived by and loved dearly by all his nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother, Paul Perschon; father-in-law; grandparents, aunts, and uncles.
