Kevin F. Coyne, 66, of Waterloo, raised in Cahokia, died Oct. 18, 2018, in Creve Coeur, Mo. 

He was born March 7, 1952, in St. Louis, Mo. 

Kevin was an avid bowler.

 He graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with two Bachelor of Arts, in Political Science and History. He retired from the Fenton (Mo.) Post Office, where he worked as a customer service associate.

Kevin was a kind-hearted soul, always willing to help friends in need. A large portion of his estate will be used to establish an Endowed Scholarship to the SIUE School of Nursing in memory of his beloved mother, Emily Craddock Coyne, RN.

He is survived by his brothers Joseph Thomas (Belle) Coyne Jr. and Patrick Coyne; aunt, nephews, cousins, dear friends Debbie Wilshusen and Vickie Kowens; and his beloved collies, Cami and Parnell.

A memorial service will follow at 6:30 p.m., at the funeral home, Rev. Dan Handschy officiating.
