Kevin Dean "Kebo" Rinehart

Kevin Dean “Kebo” Rinehart

Kevin Dean “Kebo” Rinehart, 47, of Republic, Missouri, left this world on March 14, 2017 headed for a bright and better place where there will be no sickness.

He will be in search of his Nanny and Pappaw, Modell and Elizabeth Simpson; and his Daddy, Don Rinehart.

Everyone loved Kebo and he will be so-so missed. He was more than just an avid Arkansas Hog fan, but that was second to his love of his momma. Everyone knew Kebo, and to know him was an instant love for him and a lasting memory for sure.

Kebo was born and raised in Eudora, Ark. He attended the University of Arkansas at Monticello, and was a member of the KA fraternity. He was a 20 year employee of Delta Roofing of Springfield, Mo.

He leaves behind the true love of his life, his Momma, Nona Spears; Pops, Jim Spears; brother, Jimmy Spears and wife Claricia and their two sons, James II and Carson; sister, Lisa (Spears) Wood and husband Tommy and their daughter, Abbey and their two sons, Cameron and Connor; sister, Aimee (Spears) Byram and husband Dan, and their son, Alex; and all the nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles; and no telling how many friends nationwide.

Even though this was his second family, we were all proud to call him son and brother. Kebo, you will be sadly missed but never forgotten.

A graveside service will be at 1 p.m. on Friday, March 17 at the Mt. Carmel Cemetery, in Eudora, Arkansas.

Visitation will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at the Brookline Church of Christ, 3086 N. Brookline Ave., Brookline Station, Missouri.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the American Heart Association, 3816 Paysphere Circle, Chicago, IL 60674.
