In 1972, the family moved to Cary, NC where they lived until moving to Rochester, MN in 1976.

He was one of the first to report the 35W Bridge collapse on August 1, 2007.
He loved watching hockey (mostly the Red Wings), flying, ham radio, attending car races, camping, reading travel books, sailing at the family cottage in Higgins Lake, MI with his cousins, but mostly enjoyed motorcycle trips with his wife and great friends of over 20 years. He had an Amateur Radio License and a Fixed Wing Pilots License.
He is survived by his wife Karen of 32 years of marriage, son Jonathan Plummer, daughter Kaitlyn Wyman (Travis), step son Nick Blace (Keri) and 3 grandchildren, Emma Blace (15), Eden Wyman (3 1⁄2) and Landon Wyman (4 mo.) He loved all the family gatherings over the years, especially being with the grandchildren and watching them grow. He is also survived by his loving father Kenneth Plummer, sister-in-law Marsha Swanton-Plummer, and Rowan Plummer.
He was preceded in death by his mother Kathleen Plummer in 2013, his only brother Ken Plummer in 2018, his parents-in-law Melvin and Lorraine Davis and his grandparents.
河北快3Kevin was well known for his great radio voice, quick wit and dry sense of humor, but more than that was an awesome husband, son, father, grandpa and friend. One of his friends said “We lost a great guy, solid reporter, and wonderful friend. Always calm, cool and collected with a quick wit and a ready laugh. Technical problem? No worries! He could come up with a way to fix it and his listeners never knew. He may be gone but never forgotten by those whose lives he touched” Due to COVID-19, services will be held at a later date.
