Kevin lived life to the fullest. A nurse of 40 years retiring from Jefferson University Hospital, he touched many of his patients’ lives with heartfelt compassion. He loved all the oddities, adventures, and back-alley findings of the world. He found joy in many interests and hobbies, some of which include fishing with his best bud ‘Chila’, mountain biking, traveling, gardening, and cooking. He was the fun dad and uncle who took all his nieces and nephews on adventures with him. He was genuinely curious about life and loved his people fiercely.
He is known by his family, friends, and neighbors for his adventurous spirit, storytelling, and his ability to listen and connect with people from all walks of life.
We will gather to celebrate Kevin’s life on August 12th at 11 a.m. at Holy Trinity Lithuanian Cemetery in Bear Creek followed by a luncheon at 12 p.m. at the Holiday Inn - East Mountain Inn to share memories of his life.
