Kevin John Kriegel was born the son of Glen and Linda (Guddendorf) Kriegel on September 6, 1964 in Grinnell, Iowa. He was raised near Brooklyn and graduated from BGM High School with the class of 1983.

Kevin was united in marriage to Lisa Lea Koger on August 31, 1985, at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Brooklyn. The couple was blessed with two sons, Derek and Dustin, and a daughter, Jessica. They resided and farmed near Hartwick all of their married lives. Lisa passed away after a battle with cancer on November 6, 2017.

Kevin was an outdoorsman who loved life on the farm, going for motorcycle rides, fishing, and camping. He was proud of his two sons and for them to carry on the family farming tradition. He will be remembered for being a hard-worker, for his fun-loving personality and sweet tooth, and for being able to fix nearly anything.

Kevin is survived by his fiancé, Deana Horras of Brooklyn and her son, Kellan Horras Coppinger of Ames, IA; his sons, Derek (Amanda) Kriegel and Dustin (Holly) Kriegel, both of Hartwick; grandchildren, Ellie Mae English, Harper Kriegel, Zoe Kriegel, and Emery Goodnight; and siblings, Laura (Bruce) Blankenfeld of Grinnell, Karen (Kenny) Thompson of Grinnell, Cheryl (Rick) Burnham of Grinnell, Mark (Debra) Kriegel of Brooklyn, Curtis (Angie) Kriegel of Hartwick, Mindy (Tony) Hall of Grinnell, and Ginny (Marty) Burkle of North Liberty, IA. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Lisa Kriegel; his daughter, Jessica, who died in infancy; and brother, Steven Kriegel.
