Kevin J. Ace

Kevin James Ace, 58 of Belleville, passed away Wednesday, July 18, 2018, at UW Hospital, following a motorcycle accident on July 8th near his home. Kevin was born on November 24, 1959, in Belleville to his parents, Samuel and Carolyn (Olson) Ace.

He grew up in Belleville and graduated from Belleville High School in 1977. Following graduation, Kevin worked as a machinist and welder at various machine shops. Since 2003 he worked at Wolf Appliance in Madison, and he also owned and operated Ace's Main Tap in Oregon. Kevin had embraced being a small business owner and giving back to the community. In 1984, he married Patty Swinehart in Belleville and together they raised four children. Kevin loved the outdoors. Some of his best times were on the river fishing, canoeing, hunting and camping with family and friends. He loved riding his motorcycle, and he also loved a good discussion and debate. Kevin was a very hard worker, great friend, devoted father, and grandpa. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
