I wish to express my deepest sympathy to the Woods family. I worked with Kevin over the years with the IL Dept of Natural Resources as a District Wildlife Biologist. The family will be in my thoughts and prayers during this time of loss and sorrow.

I will always remember many pleasant conversations with Evan when he visited Kevin's church in Olney, and unloading firewood at Kevin's house. I was always impressed by his sincerity, good humor, interesting stories from the old days, and curiosity about new things and interesting ideas. It is sad to lose another of his generation. Praying for peace and consolation in this time of loss.
