Kevin was the beloved son of David J. Sr. and Marie K. Riedel of Washington, Virginia. He is also survived by his grandparents, Bill and Janet Riedel of Norfolk, Virginia, and Frank Koha of Berea, Ohio; his siblings, David (Constance Magnuson), Annelise, Nick and John Riedel; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Kevin was a deeply spiritual person who wove his faith into all that he did. He did this in varied ways: as the campus minister for VMI and W&L, as a seminarian for the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, and through his many friendships. He was an avid outdoorsman, spending time backpacking on trails across the country, as part of a trail crew on the Allegheny Trail, and as a member of a Woodland Fire Crew. He took many opportunities to serve those in need in Appalachia by organizing service trips to the region.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Catholic Campus Ministry of St. Patrick Catholic Church of Lexington, Virginia c/o Laura LaClair; or the Diocese of Richmond Seminarian Fund. Both funds are at 7800 Carousel Ln., Richmond VA 23294.
