Obituary - Kevin Montgomery Goodlett

Kevin Montgomery Goodlett was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was as active, outgoing child who enjoyed skiing, playing basketball and video games. He spent time hanging out with his friends, his family and his dog, Poco. Kevin earned his GED in the Show-Me Challenge Program in the summer of 2000.

Kevin struggled with mental illness his entire adult life. Despite his handicap, he lived independently until the time of his death. Kevin's illness made it difficult to get to know him, but those who did found a steadfast, loyal friend with a quick wit, who was always ready with an off-kilter punch line and an impish grin.

Kevin's hobbies included programming, assembling computers, chatting with friends (online or in person) and listening to music. Kevin also cooked occasionally and could make a fantastic medium-rare steak.

Kevin is survived by his parents, Cliff and Vicki Norris, his brother Chris Goodlett, and his best friend Jason Barerra. Kevin will be sorely missed by all who knew him, including numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Heuser Funeral Home of Rich Hill, Missouri.
