Blessings to your family! I am a Memorial School of Nursing 1971 graduate, and worked at Memorial for 37 years, as a floor nurse all on the 8th floor. I fondly remember Dr. DeVoe! He was so nice to us student nurses, one of the few! About 1971 the task of inserting iv's into the patients was passed to us floor nurses. Dr. DeVoe taught each of us. We were so nervous and he made it so easy! He helped us individually, one on one We went right into the patient's room to do it. I am retired 14 years now and still remember! Kris Senn R.N.

I was saddened to read about the loss of Dr. DeVoe. I first met him as a student nurse at Memorial Hospital in South Bend, IN. I graduated in 1970. He was always kind to the young, naive, future RNs. We learned a lot from him in our 3 month surgery rotations. A funny memory of him, that we still talk about at our Nurses’ Alumnae reunions, is seeing him stretched out for a nap/resting his eyes on an OR gurney. We always wished that we could have done the same thing!!! He was well respected at the hospital, and was a great anesthesiologist. I ended up working for 45 years at the hospital in Peds and Peds Hem/Onc. I knew him until he retired. So happy to know that he continued living such a full life. May you all find peace and comfort during these difficult days. God bless. Kathy (Tabbert) Van Lue Retired RN

Kenny was a pleasure to work with all those years! He had a quiet serenity that was hard to match. He was a great soul and a very competent physician!! I’ll miss him siting on his tractor chair in the operating room! Peace and Love my friend, Steve McTigue, MD

Tom and the entire DeVoe family, Please accept my condolences on the loss of a great man. I had the pleasure of getting to know him when I was a Paramedic student at Memorial Hospital in South Bend. He taught me how to start IV’s and intubate patients. I distinctly remember his unique John Deere cast iron tractor seat used in his surgical suite at the hospital. He was tough on us as students, but we learned a great deal about compassion and “doing no harm” to our patients. May the Lord hold a special place for him. Mark Catanzarite - South Bend

I wanted to express my condolences to the family of Dr. Kenny DeVoe. My father, Dr. Sam Bechtold, was an obstetrician at South Bend Memorial for many years and spoke very highly of Dr. DeVoe. As soon as I read Dr. DeVoe's obituary, his name rang a bell with me. After reading his obituary it is obvious he left his family with many outstanding memories. Please accept my sympathy on your loss.
