Passed peacefully at home, on Sunday, March 29, 2020, in the arms of his loving wife of 37 years, June (née Van Leeuwen). Kevin was born in London, Ontario on January 4, 1951. He is predeceased by his father, Murray and mother, Jeanne. Kevin was the much loved son-in-law of Dan and Audrey Van Leeuwen, of Calgary, Alberta. Devoted and cherished father of Stephanie (Chris Pooley) and Andrew (Erin Mackey). His grandson, Kellen, was the light of his life and he was so proud of him. Kevin had a successful career in the insurance industry in Toronto, Calgary and London. Kevin and June enjoyed their many trips all over the world. His wisdom and sense of humour will be missed by all his family and friends. A celebration of Kevin’s life will take place in the summer. A special thank you to Dr. Jim MacLean for his kindness and compassion.
