There wasn't a dish Kevin made that I didn't like, and he knew it! He always made me feel so welcome, and never hesitated to drive me near or far. Kevin's smile and wave will always stay close to my heart.

Kevin had a heart of gold. He was best friends with my brother Billy in their younger years. They worked the Jetty Deli together. Then they came to work at cab stand Playland , the stories we could tell , he was my Moms driver, everybody made money... Then they brached out and opened their own car service, Beach & The Dueces, Kevin was a hard worker .. and he played even harder, he had a love for the horses, and he loved the joker poker machine , lol... I’m sorry , you were taken to early, I hope your out of pain, and know your watching over all your loved ones who are still here. Until we meet again R I P my friend ❣️❣️

Kevin warmed any room he was in, with is gentle and caring personality. I am so thankful to have known Kevin for so many years. I owe all my knowledge of horse racing thanks to Kevin, who would always take the time to explain the various different betting strategies. He was also an unbelievable cook, and I will always remember his amazing dishes he would prepare for the super bowl or one of the many other parties Joanne was hosting over the years. Kevin will be greatly missed, but will always live on in my heart.

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.
