Kevin Grayson Villines, 44, of Dallas, formerly of Benton, Ark., unexpectedly died May 4 at his home in Dallas. He was born May 24, 1973, in Little Rock, Ark. Kevin was a 1991 graduate of Benton High School and a 1996 double business major graduate at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. His passions in life were his family, followed by an unmatched love for music, movies, the Arkansas Razorbacks, St. Louis Cardinals and fantasy baseball. Kevin had a tremendous wit and made all those around him laugh and find humor in things. He overcame many obstacles to become a devoted family man and incredibly patient father. His favorite prayer, the Serenity Prayer, guided him in this devotion. He loved his two little girls with all of his heart. It is fitting that Kevin, being a huge Star Wars fan, passed away on May the Fourth. Kevin is survived by his loving wife, Kara Nekuza Villines, two beautiful children Anna Elizabeth, 10, and Audrey Claire, four, parents James E. and Jeannie G. Villines of Benton, Ark., brothers Chris and Tonya and Chance and Monica Villines also of Benton, Ark., parents-in-law Bill and Cheryl Nekuza of Mabank, sisters-in-law Joy Nekuza Smith and Matt of Midlothian and Emily Nekuza Herbertson and Jon of Mabank, aunt, Carolyn Mahady of Fayetteville, Ark., cousin Andrea Price of New Orleans, La., many wonderful nieces and nephews Trevor Villines, Ali Grace Villines, Madden Villines, Eliette Villines, Ryder Smith, Rustin Smith and Maxx Herbertson, who all doted on their gregarious and playful uncle and will fondly remember his Scooby Doo and Donald Duck impressions. A celebration of Kevin’s life will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Walnut Hill United Methodist Church at 10066 Marsh Lane in Dallas with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Kara, Anna and Audrey Villines gofundme. com page to help the family through this difficult stage. Kevin, you have given us all great hope and love and we will cherish the memories we have made…and we will hold you in our hearts until we are together again.
