Kevin Lamont Cook


Kevin Lamont Cook was born on May 6, 1965 in Columbus, Ohio to Eugenia Brown Caldwell and the late Roland Cook. He departed this life to eternal rest on Wednesday January 4, 2023, at Riverside Hospital.

Kevin accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior at an early age and was baptized at Christ Memorial Baptist Church.

Kevin attended Brookhaven High School where he was a Basketball star a ran track. Kevin was loved by many for his outgoing personality and his sense of stye.

Kevin could always be found giving back to others nurturing their talent. Kevin coached several little league football and basketball teams from 1987- 2009 including All Ohio Basketball and B.Js Basketball Kevin was such a good coach, he won championships at Rickenbacker and Greenlawn.

K.K., as he was known, was an entrepreneur. He was a promoter and opened several stores, Y2K Kid’s Fashions and Options Boutique. He had standards that he set for himself and others and was loved for it. In fact, his friends would tease him as being “OCD” because he would straighten up other people’s homes to keep them neat and presentable.

When Kevin joined Christian Valley Baptist Church, he became the definition of faithful servant. He drew many to the fellowship, and souls to Christ, with his testimony and his commitment. He Walked the Walk everywhere of his love for God and his church family. If the church was open, you would find Kevin there, serving and worshiping.

    Rest well with your father in heaven, Kevin. I wish that I had the opportunity to get to know you better at church. Liv always had good things to say about you. Then I found out that you were Brandi’s godfather. You were loved by many. I pray God grants peace that surpasses all understanding to your family and friends.

  24. I had the pleasure of taking care of Kevin at Pulmonary Rehab at McConnell Heart health center and were so sorry to hear of his passing. He always had the drive to get better and just breath again. I know now he is doing that with no pain.

    • Eugenia caldwell

      Thank you so much for your words of condolences and sympathy that was his hope indeed to get better and for me to as his mother and his sister. I take Solace in knowing that he is not suffering or struggling to breathe I’m having such a hard time please pray for me his mom Eugenia Caldwell

      • God Bless you Ms. Eugeina, for you have lost 3 of your Sons. You don’t know me, but I remember seeing you standing in the front door of your house sometimes, where You, Kevin, Charles (Tony) & Andre lived on Republic, some 35-40 yrs ago. I understand that our Lord & Savior makes no mistakes & doesn’t put anything on us that we can’t bare, but you my God are certainly someone that’s been put to the ULTIMATE TEST!! Me being a mother of 3 offspring’s myself, I can truly say, that just knowing of you, that I somewhat felt your pain each & every time I learned of the passing of all 3 of your Sons. I know a Loving Mother, as yourself never fully recovers from the loss of a child, but I certainly pray that Our Lord Jesus Christ makes a way for you to heal as much as Humanly possible. Again God Bless you and the entire Brown, Cook and all other Family members & Friends who loved Kevin… And that’s a whole lot of LOVE!❤️❤️
