Kevin Bruce Guice was born on March 31, 1988. He was born 12 weeks early, and right from the beginning he was a fighter. He was only given a 30% chance of survival due to his premature birth.

He fooled us all, though, and we brought him home from the hospital 3 months later. His sisters adored him, and he truly blessed his family.

As it became apparent he was going to have some serious disabilities, we came together as a family and decided we wouldn%u2019t treat him any different. We were an active family, and spent a lot of time outdoors %u2013 camping, boating, bike riding, and enjoying some great adventures. We didn%u2019t stop doing any of it, we just modified what we did to make sure Kevin could go along and enjoy it too.

Kevin got involved in Boy Scouts, and those years were his happiest. He got to do things most normal kids didn%u2019t do. From our boating adventures, to getting pushed up mountains, through canyons, down trails, going sky sailing, zip lining, learning to shoot a rifle. He was an Extra class amateur radio operator, and spent many hours volunteering with the Red Cross, the Santa Ana Fire Department and the Orange Police Department as an emergency communicator. He also volunteered at CHOC in his younger years as a member of their Youth Advisory Counsel. As a Boy Scout, he reached the rank of Eagle in 2006 just before his 18th birthday. Despite many health problems, dozens of surgeries, and way too many complications, he always kept a smile on his face and a positive attitude. He was honored by the Orange County Regional Center as the winner of their Spotlight Award in 2008. Kevin was our hero.

We were blessed to have him with us for nearly 28 years. We lost our hero, but Heaven gained an angel.

As the school nurse for students with special needs, I worked with Kevin (and his family) for many years to help Kevin have a successful school experience. I remember Kevin as positive, with confidence that he could overcome obstacles and accomplish his goals. He was cooperative and part of any solution. It was a joy to experience those years with Kevin and see his accomplishments, in and out of school. It is with saddness to see his life cut short, but his short years were packed with love and experience than many his age.

Kevin was a beautiful person to know. I got to know him through the the Orange Police Department's Ham Radio group, C.O.A.R. He brought with him a constant smile, joy of life and great knowledge of Ham Radio which he generously shared with all of us in the group. I was not aware of the many other accomplishment in his life until after he passed. He was a very loving, caring and giving person and in his short life he accomplished more and gave more than most people achieve in a lifetime.

All of us who knew him for a long or short time were blessed by his friendship and his joy of life.

I truly admire his family and especially his parents, Cliff and Bobbie for their decision to let him be all that he could be, and he was all of that.

God has taken him to live in heaven and relieved him of all his human frailties and he is, I'm sure, running joyfully through heaven sharing his beautiful personality and love throughout heaven

I was truly sorry to learn of Kevin's passing. I knew Kevin and his sweet dog, Nina, while working as an aide at Santiago Middle School. Kevin was always cheerful and positive and, at that time, was a HUGE fan of U.S. Women's Gymnastics! We had many conversations re. its team members. My sincere condolences to Bobbie and family.
