Revelation 14:13 (KJV)  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

Kevin “CAT” Maurice Woodfork was born on July 14, 1960, to Jesse Jr. and Rosie Mae (Island) Woodfork in Seminole, Oklahoma. Kevin grew up in Seminole. He became a member of the Galilee Baptist Church at a young age under the leadership of the late Rev. J. E. Woodfork, Sr. He was ordained as a Deacon under the leadership of the late Rev. L. T.

They were blessed with two children, Jacqueline and Kevin II. While they lived in Sapulpa, he worked for Wilbert Vault Company.

His favorite things to do were fishing and watching America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys! He enjoyed fishing with his friends Reggie, Rusty and Curtis. If you wanted a lively conversation just mention them Boys!
