  1. Kevin was a jolly and kind hearted soul and he never had a bad word to say about anyone or had any ill will towards anyone and he never held a grudge. He loved to gamble and he loved to eat. He loved music and sports and he loved his wife dearly until she passed away in 2013 He was a great trout slayer, and had caught a lunker Trout before most of us even learned how to drive, he was my fishing buddy and even after our Dad passed we tried to go to Montauk and the Current River as often as possible. we never made it down to the trout stream one last time, and I will regret this. He always had my back even when I did something crazy or foolish, as if any of you know me well enough you know that I’m apt to do I miss him already but I know he’s in a better place with no more depression pain and suffering. We were lucky to have him for seven years instead of just the 52 weeks that they originally gave him from the outset in the first prognosis with GBM. I love you brother and I miss you so much already. Godspeed ❤️ Love —
    Your Brother and Friend,

  2. I enjoyed coming to work every night and talking with Kevin. He always had a joke to tell and a smile on his face. He will be very much missed. -Heather
