CHICAGO, USA — A loving father of three-star athletes who was shot and died in Hyde Park was the subject of a memorial service attended by dozens of family and friends. The Simeon High School baseball diamond was filled with mourners for the ball release held in honor of Kevin Thunderbird, who died at the age of 36. He attended Simeon High School and graduated in 2005. He was an alumnus. According to the police report, Thunderbird was walking around the 5100 block of South Dorchester when someone firing from inside a vehicle opened fire on him. He was shot in the abdomen and, according to police, he fought back after being shot.
After some time, he died while being treated in hospital. At Kenwood Academy, where they are all educated, three of Thunderbird’s sons have distinguished themselves as athletes. Just two weeks after having had the opportunity to celebrate a major baseball victory, they are now in deep sorrow because of the passing of their father. According to Kevin Thunderbird Jr., “Just like the previous two weeks, we made him so proud.” “His three young sons won the city championship.” Diane, Thunderbird’s mother, said something like, “The last few weeks have been like something out of a fairy tale.” And for it to become such a nightmare to deal with.
