Kevin Andrew Vannoy, 57, passed away peacefully in his sleep on March 21, 2022 at his home. His sudden death was from natural causes.
Kevin was born in New Jersey, but grew up in Florida. He attended the University of Florida, graduating with a BS in Civil Engineering, and was an avid Gator football fan. He joined the Navy in his senior year of college. He spent the majority of his time in the Navy as a submarine officer on the USS Groton. He was honorably discharged as a lieutenant in 1994.
After his time in the Navy, he moved back to Florida and started work at Accenture Consulting/Structure Group. He married Elizabeth Campbell and they started their family in Tampa, Florida. Kevin traveled most weeks for work, so in 2005, to minimize the time away from family, he took a permanent position at MISO and they moved their young family to Carmel, Indiana. He worked in various roles within MISO and thoroughly loved learning, collaborating and strategizing solutions for the energy markets and operations. His last position within the company was Director of Market Design.
In addition to loving his job, Kevin loved bike riding. He was an avid rider and it could be guaranteed that he was either riding on his trainer if the weather wasn’t nice, or out on a many mile ride. He also took great pride in his daughters and loved seeing them perform in ICC concerts, Irish dance and volunteering with their school’s running club and debate team.
Other interests include reading, fishing, and Bible Study Fellowship. He also really liked Graeter’s ice cream. :)
Kevin will be deeply missed by his wife, Elizabeth, daughters Lillian and Rosemary, mother Dorothy (Adair) Ellen, step-mother Denise Vannoy, brother Sean (Michelle) Vannoy, sister Pam (Vernon) Kohlenberg, five nieces and nephews and extended family.
He is preceded in death by his father David A. Vannoy, niece Sydney M. Vannoy, and father-in-law Gordon W. Campbell.
Services will be held at College Park Church on Monday, March 28, 2022, at noon, with a reception at the church to follow immediately afterwards. The visitation will be at 11am, also at the church. A Veteran’s Service will be held this summer at Sarasota National Cemetery.
