Kevin Dumpprope

Kevin Roger Dumpprope, 51, passed away unexpectedly August 11, 2021, in Pillager.

Kevin was born February 28, 1970 to Larry and Margaret (Dailey) Dumpprope in Wadena. Kevin spent many of his younger years growing up in Bowdle, SD, Libby, MT, Weiser, ID and Oylen. Kevin worked for Ramstad Technologies as a fiber optic specialist in Pillager. Prior to that he worked for Polar Tank Trailer in Holdingford.

There are extroverts in the world and then there was Kevin. His greatest joy was his children, grandchildren and close family and friends. Not a day went by that he didn’t feel blessed by the close relationships he had. Kevin had a gravity that drew others to him. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, dancing, cornhole competitions, riding side by side with family and friends, as well as beers,  cocktails and being the life of every party. He always welcomed you with a big smile, warm hug and gave the same upon departure. His wit was unmatched. He lived life with no regrets, nothing left unsaid and that each day was a gift and he lived it to the fullest. Kevin will be greatly missed.

Kevin is survived by his wife, Shelby (Brownell) Dumpprope; four children, Courtney (Ryan) Schrupp, Dylan (Madison) Dumpprope, Taylor Dumpprope and Ryker Dumpprope; two step-children, Tyler Colsen and Ellie Colsen; three grandchildren Rylan, Reagan and Rylah and a little one on the way; three siblings, Darrin (Sherry) Dumpprope, Dawn (Tim) Bredehoft and Devon (Jill) Dumpprope; many nieces and nephews; one uncle, Steve (Jean) Dailey, two aunts, Evon Cory and Joyce (Short) Dailey and many close friends.

Kevin is preceded in death by his parents; grandparents, Harvey and Jane Dumpprope and Fred and Betty Dailey; two nieces, Kendra and Payton, along with many aunts and uncles.
