Irvin Kesling, 94, Kokomo, passed away Saturday night, December 23, 2023, in the Howard Regional Healthcare System in Kokomo. 

A Cass County native having grown up in the Onward area then later, the Royal Center area, Irv was perhaps best-known for importing llamas and alpacas to the United States. He had owned and opened one of the first RV camper dealerships in the Midwest – the Kokomo Trailer Mart.  Irv grew up with a strong work ethic and the drive to succeed. Whether it be serving in the Navy during the Korean War, raising bantam chickens, exotic pets or RV’s – he made it look easy while his hands told the story of his hard work and character. He wasn’t afraid to roll his sleeves up and work! 

A complete obituary will be published soon.  

A visitation will be held Monday, January 8, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Fisher Funeral Chapel. 

The funeral service celebrating Irv’s life will follow at 1 p.m.

Burial, with full military honors, will be in Shiloh Christian Cemetery.
