     Kevin King Kibby was born on February 19, 1949 to Cless and Zoe (Fish) Kibby in Harlan, Iowa. He grew up in Dunlap and graduated from Dunlap High School in 1968. Kevin was baptized on March 29, 1959 at the Dunlap Congregational Church. He moved to Council Bluffs after graduation and worked at Vickers Hydraulic Plant in Omaha. He took some electrician and air conditioning schooling and then started working for Ferrell Gas delivering propane to homes in Council Bluffs and Omaha. He then moved to Colorado in the 80’s living in Conifer and Greeley. He continued to deliver propane for Ferrell gas. Kevin took a year off trucking from 1990 to 1991 and spent it in the Central American city of Belize with two other friends with a dream of starting up a resort, which did not materialize. He came back to the states and his older brother, Lonnie gave him trucking lessons so he could truck long distance. He started with Double S Trucking out of Avoca; moved on to Navajo Trucking out of Denver, Colorado and ended up trucking with Crete Carrier Corporation in Lincoln, Nebraska for 25 years. Kevin received a “1 million career miles” award for his miles logged and his commitment to safety and service driving for Crete. He finally retired in 2016, sold his acreage in Missouri; bought a fifth wheel and traveled to Texas to live close to his brother Kelly and enjoy the warmer weather. Kevin loved to play golf, hunt, fish, ride his motorcycle and spend time with family and friends. He especially enjoyed time with his classmates whenever they could get together for a reunion.

     Kevin died on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at St. Joseph Regional Hospital in Bryan, Texas at the age of 71 years, eight months and 26 days.

     Kevin was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Kyla; brother, Lonnie Whelan and brother-in-law, Les Soma. He is survived by his sister, Keva Soma of Dunlap, Iowa; brother, Kelly Kibby and his wife Rosalee of Rockdale, Texas and many other relatives and friends.
