Kevin Gregoire was born on May 14, 1950, in Marshall to Virgil and Mary (Qunell) Gregoire. He grew up on a farm outside of Marshall, attended Central Catholic High School, and graduated from Marshall High School in 1968. Kevin was enlisted in the U.S. Navy from 1970 to 1972, during which time he served in the Vietnam War on the USS Midway. His service to his country and community continued throughout his life with countless hours serving on the Lyon County Soil and Water Board, farm crisis mediation, and Holy Redeemer’s Parish Council. On May 24, 1975, he was united in marriage to Mary Breczinski in Marshall, where the couple lived, farmed, and raised their family on Kevin’s family farm. Although Kevin greatly enjoyed the challenge of raising hogs, woodworking, winemaking, and traveling the world, he was never more content than when he was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. Kevin was thoughtful, deliberate, and extremely analytical; traits that he applied daily to his farming business and raising his family. He was a trusted advisor and friend to many. He will forever be remembered as a loving, kind husband, father, and grandfather with a compassionate, gentle, and joyful soul.


Kevin died on Tuesday, November 30, 2021, at Avera Morningside Heights Care Center in Marshall after a 16-month battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife, Mary, of Marshall; son Ryan Gregoire of Marshall, son Luke (and Jennifer) Gregoire of Cottonwood, daughter Monique Gregoire (and Jim Kuhn) of Alexandria, daughter Natalie (and Kurt) Fiedler of Broomfield, CO; grandchildren Jared, Gavin, and Connor Gregoire, Lewis and Calla Kuhn, and Sylvia Fiedler; siblings Dan (and Marilyn) Gregoire of Marshall, Barb (and Rod) Sundheim of Hastings, Karyl Caverly of Rosemount, Al (and Maggie) Gregoire of San Antonio, TX, Peggy (and Tom) Connell of Hastings, Terry (and Faye) Gregoire of Dallas, NC, Renee Wiest of Chesterfield, VA, and Mari-Kae (and Marti) Schouweiler of Rosemount; nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother Dennis.

Wonderful slide show of a life well lived. I have many vivid memories of visiting the farm: riding horses, milking cows, BB Guns and harvesting corn - Kevin was always my trusted guide. May you find peace of mind in your beautiful memories and family.

Mary, we were shocked and saddened to read of Kevin's passing. I don't think we ever saw him without a smile on his face. Always enjoyed talking to Kevin; a wonderful guy for sure. Know that you and all of your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

A few aspects that greatly stood out about Kevin were his smile and laughter. He seemed to always have a smile on his face and the laughter was not too far behind! He was always genuinely interested in what people were up to and where they were at in life; always fun to talk with him.
Another thing that always impressed me about Kevin was how intelligent he was with his farm business and he appeared to be way ahead of the times with how he went about incorporating superior genetics into his livestock.
He was a very great uncle to all of us nephews and nieces and we will miss him.
