Kevin Verpaele was actually born in Elmhurst, Illinois, but he grew up in Florida and graduated from Merritt Island High School in 1999 with a football scholarship to the University of South Florida, where he became a strong safety. He was already married and raising a child with his wife, and he would leave football practice early, in full uniform and padding, to pick up his daughter from day care and went back to practice with his teammates. Not only did the coach not mind, but he named Kevin Verpaele captain of the football team for his senior season, which was quite the honor.
After he graduated college, the family moved into a home in Melbourne, in Brevard County. Over the past 15 years or so, Kevin Verpaele has managed to compile a significant amount of work experience. Following college, Kevin worked on the Space Lift Range Systems at Patrick Air Force Base as a configuration manager. These days, he has acquired and currently runs Critter Ridders Pest Control in Brevard County, which offers a wide range of pest prevention and remediation services to residential and commercial properties throughout the county, all at prices anyone can afford.
