I should have passed this on earlier.It's from Christian Watts (an Ory cousin from Louisiana who knew Kevin well).Kevin was one of the main organizers of the big ORY REUNION in Gonzales.
Friends and Relatives, as hard as this is for me to believe and send to you, following is the obit of our "fearless leader" as I liked to call him.I, as I know most of you will, will miss him greatly and will cherish every memory I have with him.Words cannot express the feeling of great loss.To those who will be able to make the services, I will see you there.To those who will not be able to attend, please know that we are aware that you and yours are with us in spirit. Some of you may get this twice, and I apologize as I didn't want to miss anyone.Anyone who wishes more information can call me on my cell phone.
