Kevin will be missed by the staff and students at Kincardine District Secondary School, along with his friends and community. He was an artistic and empathetic teenager with a quick sense of humour. He enjoyed being active, including skateboarding, rock climbing and snowboarding. Kevin cared deeply about those around him and loved using his talents and humour to bring joy to his friends, family and cousins of all ages.
Visitation took place at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home in Kincardine on Tuesday, July 20, 2021.
A private graveside service to honour Kevin`s life was held at the Kincardine Cemetery on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, with Pastor Ken Craig officiating.
Kevin was a very empathetic person, especially toward those who were suffering, left out or otherwise falling through the cracks. He took much comfort in his art, the outdoors and his love of animals. Please consider these character traits if it is laid on your heart to make a memorial donation, in lieu of flowers, to a charity on behalf of Kevin.
