Obituary – Kevin Penick



Kevin Penick, of Summerville, South Carolina, took his final breath in his earthly body on June 29, 2019. He was surrounded by family, who will miss him dearly but know he is now pain free and enjoying his heavenly reward after battling cancer for the past five years. Kevin is survived by his wife, Katy Penick, two sons, Scott (New Jersey) and Daniel (Summerville), five grandchildren, Abigail, Anna, Luke, Jack (Scott’s) and Beau with one more granddaughter due in August (Daniel’s), as well as his daughters-in-law, Rachel (married to Scott) and Kari (married to Daniel). Kevin is also survived by his father and mother, Everett Lamar Penick and Doris Marie Penick, as well as his older sister, Vickie Penick, all residents of Walterboro. He was pre-deceased by his younger brother, Stephen.

Kevin was borne in Belleville, Illinois, on October 20, 1954, but grew up primarily in Lebanon, Virginia. He was a graduate of Harding University, in Searcy, Arkansas, and obtained his master’s degree in accounting at Georgia State University, in Atlanta, Georgia. He moved to Summerville with Katy and his sons in 1983 to take an accounting position with Support Systems International, which was later acquired by Hill-Rom. Kevin finished his career as an accountant with the U.S. Department of State. Kevin was an active member of the Summerville Church of Christ since 1983, where he was an elder. He lived a life of faith and generosity. So many friends and family have commented that we have lost not merely a good man, but a great man.

A memorial service was held at Summerville Church of Christ on Friday, July 5.
