Kevin E. Kubesh, 32 of rural Pine City, died on Monday, July 24, 2000 at the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis.
Kevin was born April 7, 1968, in Mora, the son of Eugene and Joan Kubesh. He resided with his parents on the family dairy farm north of Pine City near Beroun.
Directly out of school, Kevin worked for Pete's Sewer Service in Pine City. At age 21 he was diagnosed with renal failure, and his life became consumed with living around a dialysis schedule.
However, he never stopped making new friends or lending a helping hand to anyone in need. He enjoyed the times he felt well eough to attend an auction or watch football and basketball games and the Wednesday morning jaunts to the flea market in Pine City.
Kevin loved his life on the farm. He enjoyed watching and caring for the animals and chugging around the farm on his SC Case tractor. He took great satisfaction in producing the perfect round bale of hay with the Gehl 1470 round bailer. Spending time with his family and friends was always an important and enjoyable even to him.
Kevin is survived by his parents, Joan and Gene Kubesh, Pine City; sisters, Tammy Kubesh and Holly Schneider both of Pine City; brothers and sister-in-law Curt Kubesh and Ron and Anne Kubesh, all of Pine City; his nephew, Hunter Kubesh, grandparents, and many aunts, cousins and a host of friends.
