Kevin was born October 1, 1966 in St. Cloud to Tim and Pat (Hermes) Crandall. He lived in Clearwater before moving to Clear Lake as a young child. He returned to live in Clearwater as an adult where he was self employed in the construction business. Kevin was always thinking about how he could make the people he cared about happy. He had a love for art and was an excellent drawer. He also enjoyed playing music. Kevin reached into so many lives and helped them find happiness or comfort. He found great joy in cooking, and always loved to prepare elaborate meals for his group of girls; Taylor Pick, Shayna Bonkrude, Alexandra Eckerman, Kortney Haaf, and Jenna Grand; that he had "adopted" and thought of as family. He was a selfless man who would literally give the world to his loved ones if it meant they would be happy, even if only for a second. He will always be remembered as our Superman.

Kevin is survived by his children, Rebecka Crandall, Clearwater and Alex Crandall, Clearwater; his parents, Timm (Lynne) Crandall, Clearwater and Pat Crandall, Shertz, TX; his brothers and sister, Kris (Angie) Crandall, Clearwater; Kraig (Liza) Crandall, Duluth; Kelli (Dale) Fishbach, Shertz, TX; and Tylin (Celia) Crandall, St. Cloud.
