The details of the accident are unknown, and the authorities are investigating the incident.

Kevin was a free spirit who pursued his passions and interests with great enthusiasm. He began his career in the transit industry a decade before joining the Complete Coach Works (CCW) team in Riverside, California. For the last 22 years, he has been an essential part of CCW, serving as the General Sales Manager and supervising a broad spectrum of projects that involved mid-life rehabilitation, collision repair, and full remanufacturing.

He had been an integral part of the transportation industry for over 32 years, earning him the respect of his peers and colleagues. Kevin was known for his unwavering commitment to excellence and his natural talent for problem-solving.

He truly embodied the values of our company and will be deeply missed.”

Kevin was more than just a great colleague and leader. He was a true friend to all who knew him, always ready to offer a listening ear or a helping hand to those in need. He possessed an exceptional ability to forge meaningful connections with people on a personal level. Beyond his professional accomplishments, Kevin was known for his warm personality and caring nature. He had a remarkable ability to uplift the spirits of those around him, making everyone feel at ease in his presence.

“Kevin was one of the most genuine and caring individuals I have ever met,” Brad continued. “He lived his life with honesty, integrity, and kindness, and he will always hold a special place in our hearts.”

Kevin’s passing is a great loss to the transportation industry and the community as a whole. His legacy will continue to live on through the countless lives he touched and the positive impact he had on those around him. He is survived by his loving children, siblings, nieces, nephews, and a large extended family. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with them during this difficult time. Rest in peace, Kevin.
