Kevan Michael Croghan

Kevan Michael Croghan was born on October 8, 1975 in San Juan, Puerto Rico and passed away on October 8, 2017 in Houston, Texas at 42 years of age.

Kevan was a phenomenal athlete. In his early years growing up on the west side of Houston, he was a competitive tennis player, ranked among the top twenty best players in the state of Texas. In college he worked as a tennis pro, but would soon be introduced to the game of golf, which became a life-long pursuit for him.   A true student of the game, he would eventually become a scratch golfer.  He was often seen on the golf course at Sienna Plantation Golf Club where he was a member, playing with family and friends.

During his studies at the University of Texas in Austin, Kevan was a proud ‘Texas Wrangler’ which afforded him the opportunity to make lifelong friends from all walks of life. Kevan would later graduate from the University of Houston in 2009, with a degree in Economics. The sun rose and set around his three precious girls. His quick wit, big heart and mischievously fun sense of humor will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him.

Kevan is preceded in death by his grandparents, James and Tommie Peterson.

Kevan leaves behind to cherish his memories his wife of thirteen years, Amy E. Croghan, father and mother, Capt. Mike and Sandy Wyllie, father and mother-in-law, Dr. Ronald and Carol Beberniss; daughters, Katherine Elena Croghan, Anabelle Elizabeth Croghan and Piper Emma Croghan; brother, Jason Croghan, and his wife Angela; nephews, Carter Croghan, Cameron Croghan and Andrew Shuster.

Funeral services will begin at 3pm on Saturday, October 14, 2017,followed by a gathering of friends and family from 4pm to 6pm in the chapel of Crowder Funeral Home in Pearland, Texas. Kevan will be laid to rest during a private graveside service to be held on October 16, 2017 at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Dickinson, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, the family request memorials be made to the Go Fund Me page for Kevan’s daughter’s education fund,



  1. I am deeply sadden to hear of this loss. My heart goes out to Amy and all of her family Amy, even though it’s been far too long since our paths have physically crossed, I often think of you with a big smile remembering all of the great laughs and friendship we shared together. Hold strong, know you are missed and greatly loved by so many.

  2. I am at once stunned and grateful for the opportunity to have known Kevin, if even from a distance in frequency and immediate proximal presence.

    His joyful spirit and character in facing the challenges of a life we all share in understanding that exhibit the good of being in relationship with each other and the world around us.

    We will miss his being here and will attend to the care and support of Amy and his girls more diligently than we have as they need and desire.

    Love to all around him and their own families and care takers. We are the stakeholders for each other… Thank you, Lord for that opportunity,

    Skip Griffin

  10. So sorry to hear of Kevan’s passing. My most sincere prayers for his family.

    I was lucky enough to share a few with Kevan here in Sienna. I’ll never forget his talent as a golfer. I always said that he was absolutely the best ball striker in our group of players.

    God bless his family.

  16. Kevan was my freshman year college roommate at UT. I haven’t spoken with him in about twenty years, but I heard the news and I want to say that he was a great guy and a good roommate. It heartbreaking to hear the news. I’m sorry for your loss.

  18. My heart goes out to you and your entire family Sandy. I just can’t imagine the grief you, Jason and his wife and beautiful daughters are suffering. I looked up Kevan many times on Facebook just to see how he was doing and to see his amazing family. I look at Jamie and realize how close they were in age it is all the more shocking. I will call you in a week or two just to chat a bit. I’m in the throws of Glynn’s death on the 10th. I am so very sorry, he was a wonderful young man! May God lovingly hold you in his arms during the future days.
