Kevin Patrick Kinnamon

kevin kinnamon

Kevin Patrick Kinnamon was born March 27, 1959 and passed away Monday, May 27, 2024 at First Health Hospice House in Pinehurst, NC.

Kevin loved.  He loved his family and is survived by his wife of 42 years Linda, son Patrick Kinnamon (Ellen) and daughter Kelley Theurer (Brad), two cherished grandchildren Noah and Rosie Theurer, his mother Jean, sister Traci and brother Kerry. His father, Robert Smith Kinnamon, predeceased him.

Kevin loved his friends, and they are countless. His school friends are from Westport High School in Louisville, Kentucky and from Western Kentucky University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in photojournalism and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. 

 He worked in IT after college, then software sales. Wherever he worked, people were the best part of the job for him, and he will be mourned by many work friends.

He loved the outdoors and often referred to himself as an outside dog. Whether he was fly-fishing, hiking, golfing, skiing, scuba diving, mountain biking, or sitting on the porch with a Scotch and cigar, he just loved being outside. Of course, all those activities included people he loved.

Kevin’s loving and generous spirit included charities. In lieu of flowers, he would no doubt prefer feeding people through donations to World Central Kitchen.

Graveside service will be 11 AM, Thursday, May 30, 2024 at  Bethesda Cemetery, Aberdeen, NC.

 Fry and Prickett Funeral Home is serving the family.

Memories Timeline


    • Linda, sorry to hear the news. Kevin was a man made everybody smile and happy when he was around. And we appriciate always his and your friendship especially at the beginning of our life in Germany. It was such a big support for us being nervous and scared being overseas for the first time. I am sure Kevin knew that and opened his arms for us. Again, sorry for your loss.

    I met Kevin through his daughter Kelley in elementary school. He was a very kind and funny man. Life took us in different directions but I never forgot about the Kinnamon family! They are in my thoughts and prayers, always!

  2. I so enjoyed working with Kevin at Voyence and our little band of trouble makers including Kimberly and Aaron. I got to meet Linda on several occasions and Kevin’s son when we all traveled for work to Cannes. I even got to mountain bike with Kevin in Vegas and Dallas along with Aaron, although I couldn’t keep up. Kevin was a great person. Prayers for Linda and the family.

  3. I met Kevin in high school when we worked together at York Steak House. We had many fun times at parties, he was always laughing and made us all laugh. So glad he and Linda had so many years together and enjoying a beautiful family! He will be missed.

  4. We cherish the memories. Every single one. All our love to Linda, Patrick, Kelley, and all the family.

  5. So many good memories, Kevin. You were the joyful soul we all wanted to be near. Never to be forgotten

  6. I will always remember Kevin as an adventurous and fun loving guy. I know your family was very close and will be greatly missing him. God’s Love and Blessings in this difficult time for all of you.

  8. Had the pleasure of working with Kevin in Dallas years ago and he was such a great guy and told the best stories!!! Sending thoughts and prayers to the Kinnamon family and all the close friends that loved him so much.

  9. We met Linda and Kevin at St. Mary’s Church in Germany where they were expats and Kevin served on the parish board. Later It was such a pleasure visiting them in Texas and Colorado when we visited the States on our home visits. Kevin was a man with a big heart, a hearty laugh and a generous spirit. Such a joy. Our hearts go out to Linda at her loss. Sending her lots of love ❤️
