Kevin Timothy Edwards, age 51 of Mishawaka, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, September 9, 2023, at the Center for Hospice, Raclin House with his loving family by his side.  Kevin was born August 28, 1972, in Mishawaka, Indiana and graduated from Penn High School, class of 1991.  A standout athlete, Kevin wrestled varsity at Penn High and earned a trip to the State Finals both his Junior and Senior years.  He was also selected to represent the State of Indiana and wrestle at the Olympic Village in Mexico as he ended his high school career.

Kevin was a man with a strong will and the desire to overcome many obstacles in his way.  He completed barber school and became quite successful at his trade. Kevin knew no strangers. The ability he possessed to talk to anyone and the ease with which he made friends allowed him to connect with his clients and become a great barber.

In his spare time, he enjoyed spending time with his four dogs, visiting casinos and spending time outdoors by the bonfire or fishing with his buddies. Kevin also dedicated numerous hours and effort as he trained in the Jiu-Jitsu dojo. Often, Kevin could be found at George Wilson Park in Mishawaka where he walked his dogs and played frisbee golf.  Kevin’s true love was walking the beach.  Whether it was on Baron Lake, Lake Michigan or the Gulf of Mexico, Kevin’s love for the sand and waves was undeniable.
