Young Kevin Verpaele was just a senior in college when his girlfriend, Kathleen Rao, announced she was pregnant. From there, the family grew and grew. Their first child, a daughter named Kaley, was born in 1999 just after Verpaele completed his high school education. By the end of his college degree, earned at the University of South Florida while on a football scholarship, Verpale and his now-wife (married during junior year) had their second child of six, a son named Karys Football after the sport Verpaele loved. Following USF graduation and relocating back to Brevard County in Florida where they grew up and met, the couple moved into professional roles and expanded their family with James born in 2005, Kevin Wade born in 2008, Jase born in 2014 and Charlee Mae born in 2016. Now with six kids, Kevin Verpaele operates a Brevard County pest control company named Critter Ridders as his wife works as a nurse practitioner in dermatology.
