Kevin Wayne Klee, 43, of Taylorville took his own life on Saturday, March 4, 2017 in his residence.

He was born on July 3, 1973, the son of Jimmy and Martha (Drake) Klee. Kevin graduated from Pana High School, and later from the University of Illinois with a double major Bachelor degree in Arts for English, and in Science for Psychology. Kevin loved making people laugh, and he enjoyed performing stand-up comedy in his spare time. He competed in “The Funniest Man in Austin” contest. He also had a passion for acting, having acted in Idiocracy, Gretchen, as well as being an extra in Friday Night Lights. He adored the Yoga community, and trained in California to become an instructor. When Kevin wasn’t busy entertaining others, he found solace in traveling and camping, often in solitude. The family’s wish is that for anyone who is struggling, when life seems too much to handle, please reach out for help.

He is survived by his mother: Marty (John) Bunzey of Taylorville; sister: Erin Klee of Springfield; grandmother: Merida Drake of Lincoln; aunts and uncles: Diane Moore of Pana, Warren Drake (Gerry) of Mahomet, Harold Drake (Nancy) of Beason, and Laura G Enger (Marc) of Farmer City; and several cousins. Kevin was preceded in death by his father and grandparents: Wayne and Aggie Klee and David L. Drake.

A funeral service will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 10, 2017 at First United Methodist Church in Taylorville. Visitation will be held one hour prior to services, also in the church. Pastor Becky Lembke will officiate. Kevin’s body will be cremated following the services and a scattering will take place at a later date. 

McClure Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Taylorville is handling arrangements. Memories of Kevin or condolences to his family may be sent online at
