Devin was known for his big heart for animals and kids. He was compassionate, loyal, and accepting of everyone he met. Most would tell you that they loved his smile and loved his smirk even more, which usually meant he was up to no good! Growing up his quick wit kept us all laughing and many conversations at mealtime will be treasured forever. Devin had a passion for wrestling in middle school and high school and was famed for making several last-minute comebacks which made him so fun to watch. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing with his friends and had a love for music. He was a proud uncle and constantly strived to be named the favorite!
Devin is survived by his parents of York, his sisters, Jordan (Gene) Felise of Omaha, Connor (Dustin) Fuhrman of Nebraska City, and his brother, Braden (Jadelyn) Knight of David City, nephews, Huxley Fuhrman and Titus Knight, and nieces Oaklynn Felise and Quinley Fuhrman. Devin is also survived by his grandma, Gwen Kiser of Sun City, AZ, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and a large group of loyal friends.He was preceded in death by his grandparents: Dean and Treva Perkins, Joe Knight, and Chuck Kiser.
