    Ignoring own standards and experts, Utah commission pushes reopening

    The COVID-19 model from the CDC predicts an increase in deaths from the coronavirus from Utah in the coming weeks, and key indicators predict more hospitalizations are to come.

    Kevin D. Lau, “Kev,” “K-Rock,” was born Jan. 30, 1980 in Richfield Utah. At that time he held the record for being the tallest baby born in that hospital. He measured 23-inches tall.

    Kevin was only 32 years old when he was taken way too soon from his family and many close friends. He left us on Saturday, March 24, 2012.

    Kevin leaves behind his mother, Laura (Lau) Leader; his brothers, Keith Richard Lau and Anthony Miles Leader; his sisters, Tanya Nicole Leader and Debra Merserau Lau; his niece, Makenzie Lind Lau; his maternal grandparents, Darvin and Kathy Shields; and his paternal grandparents, Gene and Bernice Curtis. Kevin also leaves behind numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

    Those who will be waiting for him are his father, Craig S. Lau; his paternal grandfather, Dee Lau; his maternal grandmother, Juanita Shields; and his uncle, Evan Howard Shields.

    Kevin attended San Diego City College, Mesa College, and Great Basin College. He was a business major and had completed real estate courses with plans to acquire his real estate license this spring.

    As a top salesman in the automotive industry for eight years, Kevin, with his larger-than-life personality, made friends throughout his adventures wherever he went. A true rock star, Kevin, who was a self-taught bassist, played with bands such as The UV Tigers and Plastic Explosives. A true music lover, Kevin found solace in playing, listening, recording and, most of all, performing music.

    Kevin will be laid to his final rest on Friday, March 30, 2012 in Moab, Utah. Services will be held at Spanish Valley Mortuary, located at 386 North 100 West.

    Condolences may be sent to the family at www.SpanishValleyMortuary.com.
