Introduced to Pipeline by his dad, Mario "Marty," as a young man, Kevin worked in the pipeline industry for 48 years. His last 17 years he devoted to Sunland Construction, where he was superintendent over his "A Team." In all this time, Kevin took a four-day vacation. He was the first to the yard and the last to leave. His wife, Rena worked by his side for 34 years, starting with Mitchell Construction and ending with Sunland Construction. Kevin's stepson, Roudy Hampton, also worked by Kevin's side for many years as did Kevin's brothers, Steve, Tim, Rick, and Mark, his stepdaughter, Corena Hampton and his granddaughter, Jazmyn Hampton. Kevin is in Heaven starting his own new pipeline now, and he has a whole crew waiting for him. See you down the road Seven Kevin.
