Kevin’s interests included, first and foremost, his family.  He also loved to work around his home and his yard, have friends and family visit and cook for all.  He enjoyed his friends.  He had lifelong friends from grade school, the neighborhood he grew up in and the neighborhood he settled into later in life.  Kevin was a “tinkerer” and had lots of tools. He could think up things to build with scraps and he could fix almost anything.  He was eager to help others with projects and lend a hand in any way he could.  He enjoyed his motorcycle and his weekend rides with his friends.  Lastly, Kevin loved all dogs and especially his beautiful golden retrievers, Buddy and Bailey.
