Many special and fond memories with Great Nephew William Braswell, watching him grow into the wonderful young man he is today. Our annual Christmas’ with Nicole (Jason) Robare and the kids, sharing laughs, eats, and gifts.
There are many more friends and family members who were a part of Kevin’s life that will surely miss him.
Kevin loved spending time with his family and friends. He had a lot of fun being an instigator, and his laughter was so contagious. He especially loved spending time with his Auntie & Unc playing Euchre. He enjoyed spending time with our close friends eating, playing games, even eating the cookies as we frosted them on our annual Christmas Cookie Decorating dinner with our good friends Scott (Sue) Derry and Brian (Tina) Tower. He loved his cookies!!
I have to say, our most recent “making memories” with Kevin was this past summer where we spent a week with family at Keuka Lake. Thank you so much to Brian and Lesley Higgins for making this possible. He so loved this vacation with his family. Then again New Year’s Eve with Brian and Lesley playing cards, eating, and reminiscing, just the four of us.
Kevin just reached a milestone of 25 years at Eastman Kodak Company, where he was a Chemical Operator. He was extremely hard working, dedicated and loyal to his job. He worked right up till just three weeks prior to his passing.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Donations to Wilmot Cancer Institute in lieu of flowers.
