Kevin so loved his children, his grandchildren as well as his many friends and other family members. Kevin had a passion of hockey and he was a great outdoors man. He loved his fishing trips in Algonquin Park with his friends. Cutting grass, blowing snow and doing odd jobs for his mom and neighbours at home and at the cottage brought him joy and showed his generosity of heart. His companion Dot will miss her daily walks with him.
