Kevin Vaughn Pyles, 72, of Kernersville, NC, passed away unexpectedly at home on June 16, 2023. He was born on December 2, 1950, in Ravenna, OH, to Kenneth and Marilyn (Newcomb) Pyles. Kevin spent most of his professional career in pharmaceutical sales and was a loyal, caring, and committed provider for his family. He graduated from Ravenna High School in 1969, and later received a degree from Kent State University in 1973.

In his free time, Kevin loved watching sports, especially his favorite teams - the Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Guardians, Cleveland Cavaliers, and The Ohio State University Buckeyes. He also enjoyed attending his grandchildren's school and sporting events.
