Kevin F. Noren, 65, of Taylorville, Ill., passed away at 11:50 a.m. on Friday, October 4, 2019 at his residence.

Kevin was born June 29, 1954 in Taylorville, the son of James A. and Mary Ann (Reish) Noren. He married Nancy L. Romeo on September 5, 1987 in Taylorville.

Kevin graduated from Taylorville High School in 1972, and proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. After his time in the service, he graduated from the Police Academy in Champaign, Ill., and went on to work for the City of Taylorville Police Department, and then the Christian County Sheriff’s Department as a Sheriff’s Deputy.

Following his retirement from the county, Kevin stayed on as an auxiliary deputy, and also went to work for Commonwealth Edison. He and Nancy owned Creative Images photography studio, and Childhood Memories antique store in Taylorville for many years as well. Later in life Kevin serviced gaming machines at many local Taylorville establishments.

He had many hobbies, but fishing, riding his motorcycles, and collecting antiques and classic cars were his favorite past-times. Kevin was a long-time member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Taylorville.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Ann Noren; brother, Dane “Poncho” Miller; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Nicklas and Maxine (Smith) Romeo; and sister-in-law, Sonja (Romeo) Jeffrey.
