He is now with his Lord and Savior after a courageous four month battle with Angiosarcoma cancer. Kevin was well loved by all those around him, and throughout his life has touched many lives with his big heart and strong will. These traits helped him to reach out to so many, and fight on during his battle with a rare cancer, and for this, his legacy will go on forever.

He also loved his job at Rohrer’s One Hour, where he had worked for a year previous to becoming ill. Kevin is survived by his wife, Brenda Lee, of Conestoga, PA, mother Linda, of Winnipeg and brother Ken, of Winnipeg, the Kowalinskis, of Beeton, Ontario and of Toronto, Ontario, the Willsons, of Toronto, Ontario, and the Collins, of Guelph, Ontario.
