Me and Kevin met in veterans. And we're great friends threw omaley,as we got older we became best friends we always were. From nights at reservoir to Halloween nights,football,waiting at field for him to get done. And Melissa making us spaghetti lunch on Sunday's. And great times with his dad Lou. As we got older, concerts double dates with my wife, 4th July boston so many years. I will never forget the year in omaley when we were asked to fill the track team because they were gonna have to forfeit. Me and Kevin set 4 new school records that day. Kevin was my friend, my brother, and I respected him so much. Don't ever forget where you come from in Gloucester we are family.

Kevin I will never forget all the things we did together and the fun we had. The time Beverly and I took you to New Hampshire to see the Old Man in the Mountain etc. while we were at the restaurant waiting for dinner the waiter walked by and you yelled out" where's my dinner", Beverly and I wanted to hide under the table. We never knew what you might say after that day, but we always had a good time. Ther were many other times to many to mention, Trip to DC, WestPoint and Disney World when we went to get the bus and you left your ticket in the room and had to run back to get it before the bus came. You will be greatly missed by all.
With all my Love Grandpa

I grew up w Kevin. My sister was a few yrs younger than I and was very good friends w Nichole Mitchell. Growing up, he was always the kid you would want to be around because he had such a great goofball approach to things. He wasn't one to either, wallow in woes w you, or watch you wallow lol.
We had periods of not running into each other over the yrs, yet EVERY time I ran into him, he was the same little goofball that I grew up w on Leighton Ct. all those years ago.
My heart goes out to his beautiful daughter and his family. I pray all of the memories w him keeps his light going. 😘💙
