Kevin Michael Weigler, age 65, passed away peacefully on Tuesday July 21, 2020, at Shepherd of the Hills Living Center in Branson, MO. He was born July 10, 1955 in Portland, Oregon, growing up in a house filled with animals and next to beautiful forests. During high school he was very active in theater, science, and basketball and later completed a college degree in mathematics from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. He had a highly productive career during an era of major expansion for mainframe computing in Silicon Valley, working in large-scale computing projects in California, Europe, and Asia for Hewlett-Packard, Tandem, and other cutting-edge companies. He consistently demonstrated leadership skills, both technically and as a business strategist, specializing in critical thinking and productivity coaching for human capital. Kevin later formed a private consulting company, using his 30 years of hands-on participation in computer systems and marketing to assist innovation and creativity for small and large start-up companies and personal colleagues. He awakened in later years of his life to embrace and promote Christian faith, honor, truth, and patriotic values among men and women, and to spend his time showing his love of country and those who serve that mission. He was a role-model for family and friends in promoting the virtues of hard work, character, and meaningful values, always showing up in the service of those in need. He enjoyed supporting the Music department and the Theatre department at the College of the Ozarks, attending their rehearsals and shows and encouraging the students in scholastics and performing arts. Kevin had a tireless passion for helping people. He frequently volunteered his time at the Hamner’s Variety Theater of Branson and showed faith, devotion and dignity for the elderly as a local volunteer for patients and their families in Compassus Hospice Care services. Kevin exemplified and inspired many by his desire “to be needed, to be wanted and to be able to help.” The license plate for a car he once owned said, “IAM6FT9” which speaks to his personal stature as well as the legacy he’s left in the lives of his friends and family. His absolute commitment to help others is unforgettable and forever.
Kevin is survived by his mother, TR Factor, father, Jerry Weigler, sister, Sally DeJesus, brothers, Ben and Will Weigler, step-siblings Jacob and Miranda Weigler, and many nieces and nephews.
