Kevin Van Huddleston Reel

 

Kevin Van Huddleston Reel, 35, of Lexington, formerly of Owensboro, passed away suddenly on Sunday, May 28, 2023 in Lexington.  He was born June 11, 1987 in Daviess County.  Kevin had been working as a bartender and enjoyed volunteering at the Lexington Humane Society.  He was a 2006 graduate of Apollo High School, had attended the University of Kentucky before transferring to Western Kentucky University where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy in 2012.  He enjoyed playing the guitar and singing karaoke.  Kevin was a big Star Wars and Lord of the Rings fan and attended ComicCon conventions.  He could debate any subject, was a talented writer, and was working on a book about Gilgamesh.  With a big heart and enjoyment in talking to people, Kevin rarely met a stranger.  His kindness towards others was a natural part of how he lived his life.  His witty sense of humor was always a joy to experience.  Kevin was preceded in death by his grandparents, Van and Virginia Reel and Henry and Mildred Boone.

 

Surviving are his parents, Philip and Kathy Reel of Owensboro; his sister, Ashley Reel Benthall (Eli) of Mt. Vernon, Indiana; three nieces, Olivia, Jocelyn, and Isabella Benthall, all of Mt.
