Kevin Mark Kamppinen, 62, of Ashville, N.C., passed away April 23, 2021.

Kevin was born June 2, 1958, to Doris (Hill) and Kenneth Kamppinen, born the third child of four boys. He was raised on the family ranch where family and work came first, but for those Kamppinen boys, fun and trouble was next on the list!

Kevin graduated from Columbus High School in 1976 and was very proud about being an All State running back his junior and senior year. He spent the rest of his years doing what he loved, building hot rods, working on cars and being a successful Tech 4 Diesel mechanic. He was always quick to smile and up for a great ride on a Harley.

He was proceeded in death by his parents and one brother, Kermith Kamppinen. He is survived by brothers Keith Kamppinen and Kim Kamppinen; son Oakley Kamppinen and nieces and nephews.

No services are planned at this time.
