Kevin Michael Kack was born on October 25, 1956, in Canby, Minnesota. He was the son of Alvin and Irma (Bauler) Kack. He was baptized, received first communion, and was confirmed at the St. Leo Catholic Church. Kevin attended school in Canby and graduated from Canby High School with the class of 1975. After some Vo-Tech training in diesel mechanics and welding, Kevin began working at a garage in Redwood Falls.
Some years later after Kevin took a job at Schwan’s, he met Ms. Beth Ueland. On October 26, 1991, the couple was married at St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Marshall. They shared over 27 years of marriage and raised a son, Kyle. They lost a daughter, Kassie, before her birth in 1994. After a few years in Marshall, the family moved to Russell where they have lived for the past 26 years.
Kevin was proud to be a volunteer firefighter for over 30 years. He spent 10 years with the St. Leo Fire Department, serving as Chief, and another 20 years with the Russell Fire Department. Kevin was also the mayor of Russell for 8 years. His other enjoyments in life included working on his cars, going to car shows, and fishing. But he lived for his granddaughters and took every chance to spend time with them. He will be dearly missed.
