"Kevin was dedicated to firefighting and worked for the Wausau Fire Department from September, 1988 to June, 2007. He took great pride in the service he provided to his community.
Kevin was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed hunting in all seasons. During off seasons he could be found at the trap shooting range honing his skills. His latest passion was musky fishing; he loved being a part of Bill’s Musky Club and the community gathered around fishing. He also enjoyed a fun game of cards or gathering around the fireplace and talking through the night. He was a great storyteller and always found a way to make people laugh."
Survivors include two daughters, Haley (Ryan Radder) Sharpe, Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Abigail (Nicholas Jansen) Sharpe, Milwaukee; one brother, Rykart Sharpe; and former wife, Jennifer Luther, Milwaukee.
