To Catherine Robbin and family,
Dear Catherine and family,
Marsha and I are deeply saddened by Kevin’s passing and offer our sincere condolences to you and all of Kevin’s family. We remember Kevin as a charming, talented and charismatic individual. He was a generous-hearted and caring soul. Also he was the 1st person we ever saw doing theatre sports! And he certainly excelled in the mode. It was a good showcase for the wit, humour and instantaneity that was a part of him as a social being. We will always think of dear Kevin with love and very fond remembrance.

Wishing you strength in your sorrows, we are.
Robert Priest and Marsha Kirzner

I met Kevin over 40 years ago through the Scarborough Players Theatre Company and although it’s been many years since I last saw Kevin, I have fond memories of him. When I think of Kevin, I can’t help but smile. I count him amongst the sunniest people I know. Such a great disposition with an infectious sense of humour. I can’t recall ever seeing him down or angry – he loved to live life and enjoy all life had to give. We did a play together – can’t remember which – it was one of those zany farce comedies. We had a lot of fun working together on it. I remember he went off to do Theatre Sports – he was a natural and had a knack for goading the audience into laughter. We went to see the Beach Boys in concert together, I even went up to his family’s cottage once. As it all too often seems to happen, life takes us in many different directions and causes us to drift apart from some of our most wonderful friends. Years later I was working on a film and my path did cross with Kevin’s once again. Still the same upbeat Kevin; still the same wit and humour. Kevin, wherever you are, I hope you know you left your mark on this corner of the world and touched many people. Adventure lies ahead for you – just do your thing and make it smile!

What to say? Have known the man for more than 30 years! In our later years, when I lived close, Kev and I would try to meet up. Usually, it was at the Navy Club on Gerrard. I had lost touch in the last few years.
However, I could not keep up with his wit and, some call me 'witty'. Definitely not,......................................................not next to Kevin!
Working on Schitt's C., right now and will not be able to attend. We, in Transport, will figure out a way to send 'Tribute' to this 'Warrior' in Heart & Soul !!!!!!
Thank you Kevin, for a being a part of our lives.
Onward, my Brother!
