Kevin Dean Mings of Campbellsville, son of Jesse Lee Mings, Jr. and the late Lucy Frances Gabehart Mings, was born June 10, 1967 in Taylor County, Kentucky. He died at 4:54 P.M., Sunday, November 22, 2020 in Campbellsville. Age: 53
He professed faith in Christ at a young age and was a member of The Vineyard.
Kevin was a salesman with Consolidated Paper Group and a real estate agent with Century 21.
Kevin was a proud husband, father, grandfather, son, brother and friend. His love and compassion for others shined. He was able to focus in on other’s needs, connect with them and speak into their lives. His number one goal was to build relationships to advance the kingdom.
He had a passion for spending time with his grandchildren and always doing what they loved. Saturday family suppers were a must and something he poured his heart into. Kevin married Melissa in September of 1992 and shared 28 years together that were full of unforgettable memories that will be cherished. Kevin was the rock and embraced the role of spiritual leadership in the home. He wore many hats and he wore them with integrity, honesty and strength.
He had an enormous love for baseball all throughout his life; when he had four daughters, the baseball turned to softball and he never missed a game. The impact he made stretched so much further than his home. He had the privilege of coaching over 54 girls’ softball teams. He was able to impact and pour into so many young girls while teaching them the love for the game. If you knew him, you loved him. He always made time for others and lived by the motto: If it’s important to you, you will make time.
His legacy will live on in his children and grandchildren. His impact cannot be measured. Forgotten, you will not be, as we have an abundance of irreplaceable memories that will live on forever.
Besides his wife, Melissa Mings of Campbellsville, he is survived by four daughters: Kelsey Cook and husband, Cody, Karissa Pineda and husband, Humberto, Kayla Whitley and husband, John and Kristen Wilson and husband, Branden of Campbellsville; twelve grandchildren: Noah Whitley, Brantley Wilson, Brookes Wilson, Kynleigh Whitley, Harper Cook, Lyla Whitley, Margaret Wilson, Gracie Cook, Lillian Whitley, Layke Wilson, Mia Cook and Alexander Pineda; his father and step-mother, Jesse Jr. and Shirley Mings of Campbellsville; one sister, Tracy Weddle and husband, Doug of New Albany, Indiana; his father-in-law, Jim Collison, II and wife, Theresia of Campbellsville and many other relatives and friends.
