We found odd that there is no mention of Kevin´s wife Traci, perhaps they were no longer married? Here is what we got of her so far.
According to some searches we found that Kevin Sharp and his wife Traci Sharp formerly known as Traci Williams got married on April 10, 1998.
42-year-old Traci Williams Sharp was born Traci Elizabeth Williams in Oklahoma, she attended at Carl Albert State in Poteau, Oklahoma. Traci´s Sister Melinda is married to country music singer Neil McCoy real name Hubert Neal McGaughey. Regardless of the fact Traci is not mention in every article about Kevin´s death, her email and name is on his website, she still goes by Traci Williams Sharp, perhaps she likes to stay away from the attention of the media.
And the real reason is according to Kevin’s sister Lisa is because Traci and Kevin got divorce years ago.
We send our deepest condolences to her and the Sharp family, our thoughts and prayers are with them throughout this sad time.
