Kevin Leroy Armstrong was born on October 8, 1962 to Dorothy and James Armstrong. Kevin, from a very young age liked to do things on his terms. He attended Adair-Casey High School but later got his GED and joined the US Marines, where he was stationed in Twentynine Palms, California, Okinawa Japan and Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. After the Marines, Kevin worked construction until his body wouldn't let him anymore.
