Local Man to be Subject of TV Movie; Two Friends Two Sides of the Law

Posted: Friday, August 19, 2016 10:37 am | Updated: 10:58 am, Fri Aug 19, 2016.

As a young boy in Iowa, little Kevin Pedersen yearned to have his father pay attention to anything that he did.

The little boy yearned to be a soldier, policeman, fireman, long haul trucker or a farmer. In Miami, little Alex DeCubas, the same age as Kevin, knew as far as his father was concerned, the sun rose and set on little Alex. Kevin moved to Miami with his family when he was in second grade as his dad, a Colonel in the Air Force, was transferred to Homestead. He attended Howard Drive Elementary School. Alex attended Coral Reef Elementary School. Kevin yearned for the day that his dad would come to a sporting event and maybe root for him while little Alex’s dad was always at every event cheering his son on. Kevin yearned for the words, “Way to go Kevin. That’s my boy” while that became a mantra for Alex’s dad, “Way to go Alex. That’s my boy.” Kevin added, “My dad never told me he loved me. I knew he did but he never said it.”
