Buchert, Kevin

Kevin Thomas Buchert, born June 27, 1970 at Warner Robbins Air Force Base, Georgia. Died May 17, 2024.


Kevin graduated from Episcopal High School in 1988 and was loved by so many. He was a charismatic, bright, handsome, and incredibly talented athlete and student who was kind to others. He was truly blessed with so many gifts from God and loved his family deeply.  His teammates, classmates, and after school friends loved him like a brother.


After high school, Kevin attended LSU and was a member of the Theta Xi fraternity. During his years in college, he began to feel the call to ministry and spent a good bit of time in Russia as a Christian missionary. Speaking Russian, Kevin preached outdoors in the winter, on public transportation, and anywhere he could share the Gospel message. He was very special to those who were privileged to spend time with him, and his personality was infectious.


After returning to the US from Russia, Kevin’s life had its ups and downs as we all have experienced, but one thing emerged as the victor in his journey: his love for Jesus. In the last few years of his life, Kevin spent his time in service to others and being actively involved with First New Testament Church in Baton Rouge, LA, where he found much joy and strength from the loving Christian families.


Kevin was preceded in death by grandparents Rosamond and Joe Killebrew and Lorraine and Cyril Buchert. Survived by mother Linnella Garrett and father Thomas W. Buchert. Also survived by twin brother Keith Buchert, sister Ashley L. Wegmann (Joe), niece Emma L. Wegmann and nephew John Thomas Wegmann.


Celebration of life service 11:15am Friday May 24 at First New Testament Church, 3235 Aubin Lane, Baton Rouge.


In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Kevin’s name to First New Testament church, fntchurch.org.

    My Deepest Condolences. I remember fondly the times he would come see me at work when I was selling Macintosh Computers in the late 1990s.

    How terribly sad to hear. I went to elementary school with Keith and Kevin and still remember the good times in the neighborhood riding bikes and playing sports together. Sending positive energy to all.

    Linnella, I am so deeply sorry. I’m sure Kevin was welcomed with open arms by the Lord he loved and had such strong faith in for so many years. There are no words I can say to help you through this time. But, know I love you and all the wonderful memories we have. My prayer is that you will receive peace to help ease your pain.
