Kevin "Red Dog" Duane Wyant

September 6, 1960 — June 18, 2023

Chillicothe, Illinois


After a full and joyful life shared with his beloved family and friends, Kevin “Red Dog” Duane Wyant, 62,  of Chillicothe, died peacefully surrounded by loved ones while at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria on Sunday June 18, 2023 at 9:11 pm.  

Born in Pleasanton, Kansas on September 6, 1960, he was the ninth and youngest child of Calvin Chloe and Delores Mable Wyant (Gillespie).

Preceded by him in death are his mother and father, and siblings Kathi Wyant, Joyce Crowe (Wyant), Doug Wyant, Mike Wyant, & Jon Wyant. 

Kevin is survived by his siblings Joe Wyant, Bill Wyant, and Tim Wyant; children Samuel (Amanda) Wyant, Logan Wyant, and Skyelin Wyant; grandchildren Jude, Harrison, Everett, Izabelle, and Rosie Marie; and mother of his children, Heather Huckaba (Sibley). 

He leaves behind many nephews and nieces. 

He grew up in Lafayette, where he was a volunteer fire fighter for many years.  He worked construction and planted prairie along many highways and at Waste Management sites in the midwest as part of the Prairie Restoration Department at Lafayette Home Nursery.  

Kevin married Heather Sibley on July 1, 1989 at the Church of Nazarene and share three children together.

Kevin was so very proud when he became a father, and was especially devoted to his grandchildren.  His death, having occurred on Father’s Day, suitably honors his selflessness and dedication to them. 

He is regarded by all who knew him as someone who loved life and was determined to love and support the many people who loved and supported him. 

Kevin requested a simple celebration of his life which will be held at 2pm on Saturday, August 12, 2023 at Valley Lakes (13929 N Ivy Lake Rd) in Chillicothe, Il. 

Cremation rites have been accorded. Burial of his remains will be in Lafayette Cemetery next to his parents.  Remaining ashes will be given to his children, and scattered on the mountains of Colorado. Cards can be sent from and condolences left at
