Rest In Peace Kevin. You were an amazing man, friend and human.
Thank you for all you did for your community, he worked with families during to covid virus ensuring families received proper burials for loved ones. Checked in daily on friends fighting viruses in their homes and made sure everyone had what they needed to get by including the local homeless by purchasing them meals from restaurants. Kevin never wanted credit for any of his actions and often stayed behind the scenes. He was a brilliant kind man and a real loss to society.
