Funeral services are scheduled for January 2, 2019 at 2 o’clock in the afternoon at Temple Baptist Church in Dumas with Brother Chris Fobbs, pastor of the church presiding.

Keven was born June 4, 1960 in Amarillo, TX to Gayle Funk and Joe Irvin. After graduating high school, Keven married his high school sweetheart, Belinda Love on August 11, 1979. They made Dumas their home and raised their family there. Keven worked at S.B. Foot Tanning for 21 years and then went to work for Moore County Sheriff’s office where he was a jailer for 11 years. When he wasn’t preparing for Christmas, Keven loved to go camping, fishing, and would take the family on many trips to Red River. He enjoyed sitting around a “large” campfire the most. The light of his life became his granddaughter, Aaliyah, whom he adored. Keven was a member of Temple Baptist Church in Dumas and will be fondly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his daughter: April Washington; his grandparents: Bo and Ruth Noble and Alvin and Clara Irvin.
Keven is survived by: his wife: Belinda of the home: son: Kris Irvin and wife Nanette of Round Rock, TX: granddaughter: Aaliyah Washington of Royal Oak, MI, mother: Gayle Funk of Amarillo, brother: Guy and wife Hollie Irvin of Abilene, TX; sisters: Sabrina and husband Cecil Gipson of Dumas and Renae and husband Kendall Miller of Amarillo, TX.

Even though I have been gone from Dumas 16 years, I treasure and remember the loving friendship and Tupperware parties with each of you. My advice from experience is grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Hold tightly to God's unchanging hands and let Him direct your pathway; not pathways because each has their own to travel. God bless! Jackie
