I will always remember Kevin's kindness when he visited my last husband, Ed. Kevin gave him encouragement, optimism and a calm voice when he needed it most. We all relaxed after his visit. Our deepest sympathy to the entire family. Sending peace and prayers.

The only close family I have on my mother’s side is my Uncle Richie, but Kevin was like another uncle to me. He saw me grow from an infant to a man, and I’m so thankful to have known him for so many years. I will miss hanging & watching horse racing with him, and bonding over how we both hated flying. And those meatballs! The man was special in the kitchen. Stay strong Joanne. & Rest Easy Kevin, you will be missed.

kevin was a great friend and wonderful husband to joanne.
he never minded when me & joanne took off for a night out on the town, even though he did track us down once in a awhile. i'll miss his sense of humor and smiling face. i,m glad he was part of mine and dylan's life for so many years. dylan was born the morning after the superbowl party at the rbi and i swear to this day it was kevin's chili that sent me into labor. rest in peace until we all meet again.

I'll never forget him taking the time to try and explain betting on the horses to me at Belmont and he didn't look at all upset when I decided to bet on the pretty horse instead.

I will never forget the time he came to my late husband's defense after a sucker punch in a local bar. Rest in peace Murph!

I can't think of my cousin without a smile coming to my face.He was so thoughtful and generous always thinking of others first.I loved to be at the track with him although i didn't always understand his formula for this horse can't lose,I would pretend to understand.After a while i figured it out Kevin had bet on every horse.Talking to all the nieces and nephews they thought Uncle Kevin was the cool uncle he always had them laughing and walking away wondering why did he put this twenty dollar bill in my hand.We will all miss him ,but we will all have that gift he left us that smile he put on our face.

Some of my best memories working at the Jetty were with you Murph! You made time fly, everybody laugh, and played a mean air guitar! Cracked me up when you used to tell people "we went to different schools together"...makes me laugh even typing it. No matter when or where you always had a smile and a joke. Sending hugs and prayers to your family...rest in peace Murph.

I remember when all the windows in the projects had to be adjusted because Kevin at age 4 climbed out on the window sill. May you all find comfort and endurance in God to make it through this difficult journey.

Kevin was a gentle, caring soul with enduring strength and courage. We never heard him complain. He had a good caring heart. We fondly remember him playing Santa Clause giving gifts to nursing home residents. We will always remember the many times he made us all laugh. Our fondest memory was when he was dancing to YMCA by our pool. He will be greatly missed by all of us who loved him dearly. We can take comfort knowing that he is now in heaven and no longer suffering or in pain.
