Kevin Covlin

Kevin Wayne Covlin, age 51 of Princeton, lost his life due to injuries sustained in a private aircraft accident on Monday, Oct. 28, 2013.
He is appreciated by many, and will be greatly missed by those he leaves behind.
Kevin was born on July 3, 1962 in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan, Canada to Frank and Margaret (Stianson) Covlin. He was raised there and made his choice to serve God with his life at age 10.
In summer of 1984 he met Debbie Burchill at a church convention at Emo, Ontario. They joined their lives together with great hope at the Burchill farm near Hope, N.D. on Sept. 7, 1985. Four daughters came to be part of the family in the years that followed. Together, Kevin and Debbie spent 15 years near Chicago where they began a company called FLR Sanders, and then in 2000 a series of events led them to move near Princeton. FLR Sanders came along with them through the move. Through FLR, Kevin met and worked with many wonderful people who have blessed his life and his familys lives in ways beyond number.
Kevin lived his life to the fullest measure in every category, whether it be his congenial teasing of those he loved, his giving from his heart whatever he had to help those who needed it, or his quiet mentoring of the young people who worked with him at FLR. As a man who loved a full life, he enjoyed spending his time hunting, fishing, and, of course flying.
The greatest expression of his whole-hearted way was in his faith and his devotion to God, and his efforts to help others to love what he loved of his Father in heaven.
He is survived by his wife Deborah of Princeton; children Priscilla Denise (Keith) Wipf of Grouton, S.D., Marcy Elysia (Bjorn) Anderson of Foreston, Danika Rose of Minneapolis, and Taylor Morgan of Princeton; by grandson Bradyn Wipf; by his parents of Assiniboia, Saskatchewan; by siblings Rosanne Covlin of Cameroon, Africa; Neil Covlin of Grimsby Ontario; Marlowe (Jay) Covlin of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan; Lawry (Rob) Tardif of Regina, Saskatchewan; Pat (Karen) Covlin of Fort QuAppelle, Saskatchewan; Sam (Janeen) Covlin of Priestville, Saskatchewan; and many, many other special people whose relationships with Kevin cannot be explained in words. Funeral Services will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 2, at Princeton High School gymnasium. Friends may call from 9 11 a.m. Saturday at the gymnasium. Burial will be at the Milo Cemetery in Milo Township following the service.
