Kevin Paul Feldman, 65, beloved husband, father, son, uncle and friend passed away Monday, April 17, 2023.
Kevin was born June 30, 1957, in Sault Saint Marie, Michigan, son of Irwin and Betty (Baril) Feldman. He married Linda Marshall and they spent more than 20 happy years together.
Kevin had many talents. He worked as VP of Construction-Rehab Projects for Equity Residential, where he served with them more than 15 years in various capacities for maintenance and construction. Kevin was also a real estate agent/investor. He was an all-around handyman, “If it is broken, it can be fixed!” was his motto, and thus Mo Betta Engineering was born, providing services for primary friends, family, and church needs as requested. Kevin was a genius-level thinker, an Excel wizard, and excellent in all computer skills. He was a mentor, encouraging others to think effectively, and training teams of associates in skills such as electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and pool maintenance.
Kevin enjoyed fishing, camping, boating, and doing maintenance projects for others. He often did maintenance projects around the church, many times without request from the priest. He just saw a job that needed to be done and did it. It could be anything from gardening to renovation projects with the Community Building. He gave his skills and talents freely in service to the Lord.
Kevin loved the holiday season! He baked holiday strawberry bread for on-site management teams, smoked holiday hams for family and friends, and pulled Christmas trees out of swimming pools to settle a family dispute between mother and daughter (a story for another day).
Kevin was a great listener. He allowed others to share their stories openly, freely, without judgment. He provided advice when requested and gentle guidance when he saw it was needed to help one move forward.
Kevin was a good guy with a big bear façade and a gentle heart. He will be missed by many.
He was preceded in death by his step-daughter, Ashley Lorraine Hobbs.
Survivors include his wife, Linda Feldman; parents, Irwin and Betty Feldman of Tucson, Arizona; sisters, Kristy Butler (Bob), of Richmond, Virginia, and Kimberley Smith (Chris), of Arlington; sons, Jason Feldman of Forney, and Adam Feldman; daughter, Brianne Feldman; step-son, Andrew Marshall of Grapevine; seven grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; and many extended family members, co-workers, church family, and friends.
A memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, April 29, 2023, at St. Francis of Assisi Anglican Church, 117 Ranch House Road in Willow Park.
