Kevin Todd Treme, 55, of Sugar Land, Texas died on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at Sugar Land Methodist Hospital. He was born on Nov. 2, 1962 in DeQuincy. He enjoyed fishing, carpentry, boating, and loved riding his motorcycle. Kevin loved being in the outdoors and loved being with his family. He was known as the “Master Grillman” and everyone loved his BBQ. He was a very hard working man and provided for his family. In the children’s earlier years, he would take them to the Rodeo and would ride horses with them. Every year at Christmas time, he would put up lights for three acres of land and a tradition every year was reading “The Cajun Night Before Christmas” to his kids. Kevin loved being a part of his kids’ sporting events and would take them to Astros games, and every year they would go on family vacations. In Kevin’s early years, his sister, Joan would take care of him and was known as his “Bodyguard”. Growing up, he enjoyed being with his siblings and cousins playing outdoors and getting into anything they could find to get into, including Papaw Charlie’s paint. He was a jokester and always had people laughing around him.

Wilburn and husband Matt of Sulphur; mother, Marie Brown of Sugar Land, Texas; father, Winfard Treme; sister, Joan T.
