Kevin Wayne TeJohn

December 9, 1961 ~ January 8, 2020 (age 58)

Kevin Wayne TeJohn, age 58, of Cass Lake and the Turtle Clan, began his spiritual journey on January 8, 2020. He was born December 9, 1961, in Park Rapids, Minnesota to James Lawrence Tejohn, Sr. and Elizabeth Blakely.

Kevin spent the past thirty years working as a blackjack dealer for Northern Lights Casino. Earlier in life, he had been a Wild Land firefighter for Leech Lake DRM. Kevin enjoyed fishing and loved to play pool. He had many trophies from the leagues and tournaments he had played in. Some say he had a "mean stick". His favorite music was the oldies, and as he worked a lot of nights, many family and friends woke to a song he had sent them.

Kevin is reunited with his mother, Elizabeth, and his father James; brother, Kenneth TeJohn; and daughter, Miranda Ogema.

Kevin leaves behind his daughters, Raquel and Shantell Jourdain; son, Anthony Stewart Whipple; brother, James TeJohn, Jr .; sisters, Beverly Kamrowski, Linda TeJohn, Barbara Bullhead, and Jenny Ellis; as well as several grandchildren.
