    I was very saddened to learn about Kevin’s passing. I worked with Kevin at Sara Lee Direct during the 90’s and from attending Holy Family Catholic Church together. Kevin was a great guy to work with and I can attest to his basketball prowess, as there was a group of us at SLD who played ‘pickup’ on a weekly basis for many years and more times than not, being on Kevin’s team meant being on the winning team and staying on the court to take on the ‘next’ team. He will be dearly missed and I will keep Kevin and his family in my prayers and may he Rest In Peace.

    Kevin is my cousin, and although I haven’t seen him in year’s I will always remember his happy demeanor and infectious smile. He was definitely one of the good guys that unfortunately is gone way to soon. I now will always regret not visiting him in recent years since moving to NC. Eventually you run out of tomorrow’s. You will be missed but never forgotten. Rest In Peace.
