Condolence & Memory Journal

Jon and Family

Our deepest condolences on the passing of Kevin earlier this year, We very much enjoyed his kindness and respectfulness for our family over the years on Upham St and will miss him. The 911 vigil back in 2001 will always bring back a warm memory of Kevin when us neighbors stood together with candles and he helped us with some inspiring words at the time. I miss the cold beverages Kevin would drop off on our porch each spring as a gratitude for helping manage the many snow shoveling dilemma's Jon and I had encountered the previous winter. This ritual also meant warmer days were upon us which he could wax his Acura then spend some quality time gardening with Jon or just closing out his day on a porch rocker. Simple pleasures indeed,

We truly regret missing his services in Wakefield in March. May Kevin Rest in Peace.

Jonathan and Kevin's beloved family and friends. We had the pleasure of growing as you neighbors and Kevin was never without a smile and a wave. Even after he fell ill, it warmed my heart to see you enjoying the weather on the front porch. Our deepest sympathy and condolences are with you all, and especially you, Jonathan at this most difficult time.

Kevin was a dear friend. We worked together at Norfolk Conveyor and had a memorable bike ride to work from his place in Weymouth about 1976-7.

We are so grateful to have spent time with Kevin during holidays and summer family dinners. His quiet, confident and kind manner made it easy to get to know him. We always looked forward to spending time in his company. Our hearts go out to Jonathan and the rest of Kevin's family at this sad time.

Jim and I first Kevin a number of years ago at the Leclair family gathering. We were both immediately struck by his warmth and kindness. That type of person is rare in this world today and his loss makes the world less bright.

We cannot attend the service but we will keep Kevin and Jon in our prayers.
