He was born on April 21, 1962 in Angola, Indiana to Paul Underwood and Mary M. (Kondas) Underwood Eyster.

Kevin married Karen S. Niccum on December 31, 2004.

He was an incredible artist, a perfectionist and a creator of tile masterpieces. He put his talent to use in his own business that he operated known as “The Tile Guys”.

Kevin was a wonderful Husband, Father and “Papa”.  He very much enjoyed spending time with his Wife, children and grandchildren at his lake home.  He loved cooking large family meals, being outdoors, 4-wheeling, hunting, gardening and taking pontoon boat rides.  Kevin was very proud, patient, understanding and giving.  His unconditional love had absolutely no end and his laugh was larger than life.  He forgave easily and most importantly, Kevin prided himself on always being humble and kind.

Surviving is his loving wife, Karen S. Underwood of Pleasant Lake, Indiana; his children, Aubrey (Jake) Rosado of Waterloo, Indiana, Erica (Satero Willett) Underwood of Ashley, Indiana, Kayleigh (Jake Sanders) Underwood of Angola, Denise (Pete) Moorehead of Corunna, Michigan and Dee (Abby) Cook of Pleasant Lake, Indiana; 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.  Also surviving are his sisters, Yvonne Blair of Butler, Indiana and Sheila Cole of Auburn, Indiana.  He is also survived by his four furry children, Kloey, Brutus, Precious and Poco, his beloved Chihuahuas.

It was a long time ago, but I remember Kevin as one of my outstanding middle school art students. Thinking of him brings a smile to my face. To his family, I am so sorry for your loss. He is fondly remembered .

Long ago , when Kevin & I were about 10 , my mom dated his dad. Being the same age , having same interests, we were close , he was like a brother. He has been on my mind for quite sometime. I’ve looked but never found him . I decided to give it another go ,& maybe find something on his dad , Paul . My heart broke when not his dad but Kevin popped up. I haven’t seen him since I was 11 . I am so sorry for your loss . Is a sad day today
