Kevin Dale Patrick Mains, 59, graduated to heaven on February 2, 2017. He was born September 19, 1957 in Cincinnati, Ohio to his loving parents Bobbie Jo (residing in Cincinnati) and Marvin Mains (passed January 2, 2017). Kevin was the youngest of three children; his older siblings are his sister Leslie and his brother Michael.
While attending the University of Cincinnati, he became a disciple on July 9, 1980 and later graduated with a degree in marketing. After beginning his career in sales, Kevin was able to realize his dream of going into the full-time ministry on March 1, 1985, and then three months later married his best friend Mary in Cincinnati (after pursuing her for three years).
Together Kevin and Mary moved around the country, sharing the good news of the gospel. They were able to serve and lead ministries in Cincinnati, Ohio, Chicago, Illinois, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and in the Los Angeles church in three different regions – Central, South and Orange County.
Kevin was a man who loved his wife and his children wholeheartedly! He is survived by his son Stuart and daughter-in-law Ashley who live in Riverside with their two children, Elle (3) and Caden (1). His daughter Olivia and son-in-law Chaz Zenteno live in Westwood; both couples serve in the campus ministry.
Kevin was a man who loved God more than anything. He enjoyed hiking, tennis, biking and playing pickle ball with his best friend – his wife. He loved being papa to his grandchildren and he was an incredible Papa Fox to all the kids at Youth Camp.
There was no one like him. We will be able tell funny stories of experiences together and his memory will live on in everyone who was fortunate enough to have known him and love him.
