    Fiona & family; I am so very sorry to hear of Kevin’s passing. A young man with so much more to share with his family and the world. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Please let me know if I can do anything for you.

  • Rhonda Rea says:

    Dear Fiona and family;

    I just saw Kevin at a meeting not long ago with his close buddy Todd. They were like brothers always together and best of friends. Having said that, it is true the love of his family, and the stories of the vacations with you and the children were always cherished memories. I am so sorry for your loss and I can’t help but cry knowing Kevin was so full of life and certainly passed away long before he would be able to fulfill future goals. God bless you and comfort you.

  • Trena Phillips says:

    To Fiona and the Irvine family. I knew Kevin through his work and kept in touch by emails from time-to-time. He made an impact on me because he was such a genuinely kind and caring man. My heart breaks for you at this time of unexpected and devastating loss. Kevin talked of his family and children often and what I took away from my conversations with him was that you were his #1 priority in life. A wonderful person, taken far too soon. I am so very sorry for your loss!

  • Donna (Distefano) Fooks says:

He was always so upbeat and just a great guy to be around. I just saw him in August and he was his happy self of course. He will be missed no doubt by all that knew him. You will all be in my prayers.

  • Sandra Mendes says:

    Dear Fiona and family,
    I was so sorry to hear of Kevin’s sudden passing. I first met Kevin in 2010 when he helped me with a mortgage and I was so impressed with his warmth and dedication. He spoke with such compassion about his family. I last spoke with Kevin in October when he gave me more good advice on renewing my mortgage and told me how to use the speaker phone on my i phone, as he had called me while I was driving. He left us too soon and will be dearly missed. My sincere sympathies to you, Payton, Carson, and the rest of the family. I know Kevin filled your lives with many precious memories to treasure. He will live on in your hearts forever.
