Kevin moved to California in 1970 and settled in “P-Town” Pleasanton, CA in 1975. A devastating car accident in 1982 revealed what a fighter Kevin was. All of his Doctors predicted he would never walk or drive again, Kevin proved them all wrong. However it did cut a promising career short. Kevin moved to Sonora in 1992.
