Kevin was a loving, kindhearted, and humorous son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, grandson, and brother-in-law. He was an Outstanding Sailor in the United States Navy who leaves behind his mother Jeanette Tesar; father, Charlie Flynt and his wife, Vicki; sister, Jessica Munoz and her husband, Chris and their daughter, Scarlett. He also leaves behind his grandparents, Jeannine and Randy James, Virginia Heath, Johnny and Bunny Tesar; along with many other family members that love him more than words could ever express. Kevin had many friends from his 16-and-a-half-year career in the United States Navy and was loved by all that knew him.
He is preceded in death by his grandfather, William Flynt, retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer.
Kevin did not grow up in any one specific town, although he was born in Fort Worth, Texas. He was part of a Navy family that moved around a lot from Texas to the east coast to the west coast and back, and finally returned to Texas where he graduated High School in Kingsville, Texas in 2004. He then joined the United States Navy in October 2005. He served aboard the USS Kauffman (FFG-59) for several years after he completed recruit training and 16-weeks of training to become a Gas Turbine Systems Technician Electrical (GSE). When it was his time to transfer, he decided to convert over to the “Brown Shoe Navy” and become an Aviation Machinist’s Mate (AD). He earned his Air Warfare pin as an AD3, which is an incredibly difficult task. As he rose to become a First-Class Petty Officer, or AD1 (AW), he also became a strong leader and mentor to others.
Kevin was known for his humor and mild sarcasm, which would make people laugh and brought control to any situation. But he was also known for his huge heart and the willingness to help anyone at any time.
“Kevin is that unpicked flower in the field because God only keeps the good ones!”
