On his weekends, he would often do masonry which he excelled at. In his younger years he worked for an ironworker’s union. He was a hard worker who loved what he did and took pride in his work. He was very talented.
Kevin was very outgoing and always doing something to keep busy; whether that be voluntarily helping those he cared about with moving, yard work, or repairs. Kevin just loved animals; domestic and wild. He has saved birds and turtles on numerous occasions and always greeted family pets with a gentle pat and a “hey lil’Mista Mista”.
Some of Kevin’s hobbies included fishing, hiking, cooking, billiards, and music. He also loved holidays, family gatherings and cookouts because he loved to socialize and be around those he cared about. He was a very generous man who loved to treat and spoil his family/friends with surprise dinners, take-out, and day trips. His distinctive voice and fun-loving sense of humor were always a delight.
