Born in Oregon City, Oregon on June 15th, 1955. Kevin was the oldest child of eight children born to Dean Wimer and Delores Wimer (Dunn). He started out in Canby, Oregon, they later moved to Kinzua, Oregon at the age of seven. These years were some of the most cherished in his life. Running around the wilderness from sun up to sun down and of course the beautiful lake. In 1971 he joined the Navy for some time, after the Navy he resided in Horseshoe Bend, Idaho where he spent his time at various logging companies. He lived there with his wife Debbie, the mother of his three children. In 1999, his family moved to La Grande, Oregon, where he began a career as a long haul truck driver. In 2010, Kevin followed the oil boom to Wyoming where he hauled sand to oil locations, he retired in 2017 and settled in Casper, Wyoming where he passed away on June 23rd, 2020.
Kevin had a list of talents - many of which came natural. For starters he was the best story teller, with a sense of humor that was unmatched. In his spare time he would be in his shop listening to classic rock while he made, miniature to scale, wooden models of logging equipment, they were amazing. He was also gifted with mechanic hands, he could fix it all. Kevin was an artist, although he wouldn't admit it, the things he would dream up and create were next level. Absolutely amazing.
He is survived by his children Zachary Wimer (Danielle), Tyrell Wimer and Heather Wimer (Remington). His six grandchildren, Ridley, Ember, Annabelle, Olivia, Quinn and Elliott. Also by his seven siblings; Leroy and Kathy Wimer, Penny Wells, Jt Wimer, Brian and Annette Wilson, Jimmy and Heidi Wimer, Bert and Terri Wimer and Dan and Shirley Moon.
