Tuesday evening, two of Hollywood’s friends spoke with Local 5 in an exclusive interview.
Angie Anthony and Mary Coenen say Kevin garnered the nickname Hollywood years ago while acting in local commercials.
They described Kevin as a dependable, genuine, and a gentleman who always made himself available to help others.
According to Anthony and Coenen, Hein was protecting his friends in his final moments.
“I thought first, how could he die like this being such a good man but you know it would be the perfect way for him,” said Angie Anthony. “He was doing what he did, which was be there for somebody.”
“I hope if anyone knows who did this, they show him this and know what a wonderful life he took,” Mary Coenen told Local 5.
Memorial services for Kevin “Hollywood” Hein will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, October 19 at Christus Lutheran Church in Clintonville.
The funeral was originally set to be held at Christ Congregational UCC in Clintonville, but, due to the outpour from the community, Pastor Jill Meyer says the funeral has been moved to Christus Lutheran Church in Clintonville.
