December 12, 1965 – August 7, 2018
TWIN FALLS — Kevin Chapman, age 52, passed away Tuesday evening August 7, 2018 at his residence in Twin Falls, Idaho. The cause of death was an apparent heart attack. Kevin was born in Whittier, California, to parents Patrick and Patricia Chapman on December 12, 1965. He has two older brothers, Shawn P. Chapman and Kerry R. Chapman, who both live in Eagle, Idaho.
The family moved to Buhl in the autumn of 1973. All were anxious to learn as much as possible about the community before the snow fell. Kevin and his brothers registered for school and the games began. All the brothers were explorers. He was familiar with Idaho from north to south and from east to west, all the caves, mountains, deserts, valleys, and water ways. Kevin loved Idaho history and had concerns for Idaho’s future.
Kevin did well academically and in the arts. He was in several dramas and served as Senior Class President. Kevin played baseball, football, and wrestling. He took part in ‘The Kids Wrestling’ coached by Kelly Barlett for whom Kevin had a deep respect. And, there are really not enough words to describe how Kevin felt about coach Jeff Howell. One of Kevin’s finest memories was his winning the 1983 Idaho State Wrestling Championship in his weight class, 138 lbs.
A celebration of life will be held at 11:00a.m., Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at the First Christian Church, 1005 Poplar St., Buhl, Idaho. Private burial services will be held. Arrangements are under the direction of Serenity Funeral Chapel Life Celebration Center and Cremation Services of Idaho, Twin Falls. Condolences may be shared at www.serenityfuneralchapel.com.
