Long long ago in a galaxy far far away, Kevin Christian Teuscher was born January 23, 1966, at Tripler Army Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. Ronald Arno Teuscher and Sherrol Ann Teuscher, brought Kevin into the world.
Kevin had a passion for all things mechanical from an early age. He had a love for technology, model planes, music, and art. Throughout his life he had a vision of a better world and was inspired by things such as Star Trek, Star Wars, and Harry Potter. He spent his childhood years in Orlando, Florida. At age 14 his family moved to Utah where he attended Taylorsville Highschool.
Kevin became a mechanical engineer in the Navy as a Gunner’s Mate, which required a high level of math skills, mechanical knowledge as well as electrical and general science.
Kevin became an Electro mechanic at the Utah Transit Authority where he was responsible for repairing and maintaining the TRAX trains. He was part of a special group that responded to critical problems including major accidents.
He was extremely skilled as a problem solver. He was a great leader and mentor. He really cared about people and wanted everyone to succeed. He was widely known as someone who wanted people to be happy. He excelled at solving problems and would do anything for anyone. He especially loved his animals with all his heart and was a caretaker of kitties, countless fish and several dogs. They are always with him, even to the end.
He was married to Leslie for 20 years and they remain close friends. He was considered a father to Leslie’s children, Cody and Allison.
Kevin is survived by Kory, best friend and brother and brother Kyle (Jaime); and sisters Kathleen (William), Krista (Will), Karrie (Gabe), Kimberly (Aron). He also had many nieces and nephews he loved.
