It is with great sadness that we, the family of Kevin Joseph Carew, announce his passing at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital on March 14, 2020. Born in Sydney, May 24, 1953. Kevin was the son of the late Lena and Alfred Carew. He was born and raised in Whitney Pier and remained there to bring up his own family. Kevin always had a story about his days growing up on Railroad Street. Kevin enjoyed many things in his life. He was always the happiest listening to country music, playing in the band, cleaning his cars and watching his grandkids in concerts and playing sports. He spent many summers with his family at the bungalow out on the Mira. Kevin was always up for having a good time. In his later years, he enjoyed walking at the mall and going for coffee with his good friend, Bobby Rowe. Kevin also enjoyed doing puzzles and chatting with his friends at the building. Kevin is survived by his two sons, Kris and Brad (Charlotte); grandchildren, Alexandra, Kenzie, Ava and Brady; companion, Susan MacNeil and her daughters, Amy MacNeil (Matt), Beckie Inder (Brandon) and his granddaughter, Sophia. Kevin is also survived by his sisters, Joan (Steve) MacKenzie, New Brunswick, Elaine (Martin) Matheson, Sydney, brother, George, Sydney and sisters-in-law, Rena, Deborah and Donna, all of Sydney. He was predeceased by his wife, Arlene; brothers, Louis, Gerald and Bernie; sister Shirley and sister-in-law Judy. Due to current health warnings, service, reception and burial is being delayed and will be announced at a later date.

Kevin and the Carew family were our family friends growing up in "Good Old Whitney Pier". Later in life Kevin and I were neighbors. We reminisced about many stories of our growing up in the Pier. Sadly, another too young to go Pier boy has left us; far too early Rest in Peace my good friend.

For Brad and family and Sue and family. I don't have the words to express how sad I am that Kevin has passed. Everybody loved him, and he was everyone's friend. I live in 312 and a lot of the people in this building shared so many laughs and countless hours doing the puzzles and listening to his stories. We are in shock. He can never be replaced and will never be forgotten. So very sorry.

I Lived at 23 Railroad St. At age 9 or 10 Kevin and I were the best of friends although it didn’t start out that way. I was pretty good at throwing rocks, I and Kevin were at opposite ends of the Street Kevin dared me to throw a rock at him ,he said he wouldn’t move, so I threw it and he never moved , I hit him right on the top of his head, knocked his hat off and almost knocked him out as well, it was just the crazy things we did as kids. In the winter we would dig tunnels from his house to my. His home was the only home that had a telephone so often he would come to the house to tell us we had a phone call, and everyone else on the street as well. My best memory of Kevin is the day he saved my life. We were doing something we shouldn’t been doing , we were sliding on cardboard down the small street parallel to the overpass . A pickup came speeding down the street , we were sliding down at the time ,I never seen the truck but Kevin did at the last minute, just as it was about to run over my head Kevin reach under the truck and pulled me out from under the tire, it was so close that as Kevin pulled on me hair was pulled out of my head by the front tire . I would not be alive today if it wasn’t for Kevin and his bravery to stay with his best friend and save him, I never forgot it and never will, best friends forever, love Jim Whalen
