Kevin Carl Duval, age 71 of Valparaiso, Ind., formerly of Chesterton, Ind.,
passed away Friday April 12, 2013 at his home.
He was born on January 27, 1942 in Baltimore, Md., to Ernest and Mary Gould

Kevin was a member of Augsburg Evangelical Lutheran Church and he retired
from Bethlehem Steel with 40 years of service as a planner. He enjoyed
meeting the “lunch bunch” from Bethlehem, reading, paying close attention to
the news and politics. A great listener, he gave advice regardless if you
asked for it and was a friend to all who knew him.
Kevin was a devoted, loving and caring husband, father and grandfather.
Besides spending time with his friends and family, he enjoyed golf, a good
cigar and most recently the companionship of his beloved dog Lady.
