August 25, 2021

Kevin G. Soufal, 63, passed away after a brief illness early Wednesday August 25, 2021.  He was born June 11, 1958, to Gerald and Carol (Steward) Soufal.  After graduating from Shawano High School in 1976, Kevin attended NWTC to begin his work as an engineering technician. He joined Ayres Associates and began a 40+ year career, currently employed as a senior designer in civil engineering. 

On December 30, 1978, Kevin was united in the sacrament of marriage to Jean Schmeisser at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Shawano.  He was a loving and patient husband, father and grandfather who adored spending time with his family.  Kevin coached baseball for many years, from little league to high school levels.  His passion was the outdoors, whether hunting or fishing with the change of seasons.  He also enjoyed watching and playing sports — Brewer baseball, Packer football, bowling, and volleyball leagues.  His Catholic faith was also a priority, and he was a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish.

He is survived by his wife Jean Soufal; three children, Andrea (Phil III) Verville, Gregory (Cathie) Soufal, Stephanie (Anthony Gladych) Soufal; his grandchildren, Emma, Phillip IV and Madelyn Verville, Jaxon and Drew Soufal, and Adrienne Gladych; his mother, Carol Soufal; a sister, Mary (Steve) Johnson; brother-in-law, Steve (Mickey) Schmeisser, other relatives including nieces and nephews, his business colleagues, and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Gerald Soufal; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Ralph and Arlene Schmeisser; nieces Melissa and Emily Schmeisser.
