Kevin Kristoffer Strong passed away at his home in Boise, Idaho on Friday, November 23rd at the age of 47. Kevin was a warrior and fought a four year battle with cancer. We are all very proud of how he stayed so strong and positive throughout his journey.
Kevin was born in Deer Lodge, MT and attended Stevensville High School. Kevin loved to travel the world and had the opportunity to do so as a C-130 crewman in both the United States Navy and Air Force. Kevin received his Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies at Cal Poly State University San Luis Obispo. Shortly after that, he and his wife, Heather, relocated to Boise, Idaho. Kevin used his degree to teach and serve as the middle school athletic director for the Vallivue School District. Kevin had a passion for kids and for providing them an opportunity to grow and learn.
Kevin loved the outdoors. He often took his two daughters, Kendall and Sidney, fishing and to play in the local parks. Kevin served in the Awana ministry at church. He will always be remembered for his infectious smile and his gentle spirit.
