Kevin Michael Condello
January 5, 1969 – August 28, 2021
Kevin Michael Condello a long-time resident of Colorado Springs, Colorado went home to be with the Lord on Saturday August 28, 2021.
Kevin had the utmost zest for mountain life, lordy did he ever! Camping, fishing, hiking, firepits, how he loved it all and if it were possible, he would have left city life to become a true Daniel Boone. Kevin’s Colorado mountains brought him so much peace and serenity. Kevin was also, by far, the biggest jokester, so everyone always knew to be on their guard for the ultimate prank about to happen! And talk about a magnet! Kids of all ages and fur babies too gravitated towards Kevin as he entered any room. The ease and comfort and playfulness about him seemed to enter the room before Kevin did as if announcing his arrival and kids and animals picked up on this instantaneously and the next thing you know Kevin was on hands and knees providing every chuckle that he could.
Kevin has been in the telecommunications field for over 26 years. His most proud moment during his career span was when the Covid pandemic hit, and he was able to be part of an amazing team as essential personnel to help keep many systems up and running at hospitals, retail, banks, and grocery stores. Outside of his career field Kevin never failed to lend help where needed. His hands were rough and calloused and proudly earned him the name “worker bee”!
The most intimate decision Kevin made for himself was the day he asked Jesus Christ into his heart and to become his Savior. Shortly thereafter Kevin made another personal intimate decision to get baptized, publicly acknowledging that he had become a Christian.
The most important role of Kevin’s life is when he became a husband, a father, and a Papa Bear. God prepared Kevin and continued to teach him for these 3 important roles, and he lived up to them beyond measure. Kevin loved, nurtured, and protected his family with every fiber of his being, and they all felt it.
Kevin is preceded in death by his father, Rodney Earl Crabtree. Kevin leaves behind a wife, Traci Lee Condello, a daughter Kynzi Jordan Roberts, a grandson, Charley Maddox Helmuth. Kevin also leaves behind a brother, Randy Condello, his wife, Nancie Condello, and he also leaves behind many nephews and nieces as well as his mother, June Eckwall.
Kevin’s final wishes were to be cremated and his ashes be spread in his beloved Colorado mountains. A memorial service will be held in Lubbock, Texas with a date to be determined.
