Kevin and I were raised in the same road just a field apart. We lived just East of the family on the same side of the road. Kevin was younger than me but I do remember him as a kid . I’m truely sorry for your loss.
May he Rest In Peace.

A half hour later he was at my door, turns out he was looking for a machine shop to make an adapter for a lathe chuck. I eventually made one for him. We hit it off real well with mutual interest in machinery.
I visited his shop one real hot day when I took a scooter ride. He had several projects in process. We sat outside with wife, daughter and dog I believe, having a soda. He told me then he was fighting cancer.
I was glad I had him as a friend for a short few years and will miss him. He seemed like a real neat guy.
My condolences to you all. I will miss him.
