Kevin “Trapper” Davidson
Kevin “Trapper” Davidson became a donor hero in 2020. He loved his family and friends, was an avid hunter, and enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle.
Kevin shared a special bond with his family and friends. Perhaps most memorable is the love he had for his nieces and nephews. He was there for every birthday, holiday and special event. I don’t think they ever heard the word “no” from Uncle Trapper. It was, “…let’s go Uncle Trapper…” and off they went, Kevin always with a big smile. He was there when we needed him, no matter what. Whether it was mom calling and needing help on the farm, or friends needing help sorting cattle or hauling bulls, Kevin was there; happy to help and spend time with the people he loved.
His love for riding began at a young age, riding dirt bikes, four wheelers on a makeshift track at home with his friends and sisters. As he grew older, he took an interest in motorcycles, purchasing his beloved Harley Davidson and joining the Fire and Iron motorcycle club. He formed strong friendships as a member of Fire and Iron, exploring his love for riding and becoming actively involved in community service with the club.
Kevin also shared a passion for hunting, starting from childhood, with his father, family members, and close friends. He hunted pheasant, deer, elk, antelope, wild hogs, and many other animals. One of his most beloved annual hunting trips was to Arizona, where he hunted elk in the mountains with a close-knit group of family and friends. This was a time to disconnect from the craziness of the world around him and to fully enjoy his love for hunting and time spent with friends and family.
While Kevin thoroughly enjoyed his hobbies, he was also an extremely hard worker. He grew up farming, often working from sun up to sun down. He later took a job with Duncan Aviation, where he spent 12-years, and became an Interior Cabinet Master Specialist.
Kevin will forever be remembered for his carefree spirit, contagious smile, and generous soul.
Being a donor was important to Kevin. He wanted someone else to have another chance if given the opportunity; another moment with family, another birthday, another adventure. Although his loss has been extremely difficult, we take solace knowing he lives on in our hearts, minds and now through the gift of helping others. This is something that would certainly make him smile and, for us, through tears, we smile, too.
