Kevin, Thugy, Kev, Kevboswev, Tree Top, Big Bro, Gentle Giant, Uncle Kevin, Uncle Kev, Grandpa, Grandpa Kevin, Daddy, Pops, as he was affectionately called. He was a man like no other. He was the best son a mother and father could ever have. He taught and protected his brother and sisters fiercely. The four “Ks” had a special bond. Kevin did not recognize “in-law” in the terms Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law. Fatman, Jennifer and Anthony were his brothers and sister. He was our confidant. Kevin fussed over his children and grandchildren with care and dedication. “Daddy was the type of father who called to check in just to hear his kids’ voice, and to provide random words of wisdom. Any time he could teach anyone something new, he jumped at the opportunity. Daddy welcomed any and everyone into his circle, accepting our friends as his son or daughter and making them feel a part of our family. Daddy was a hands-on Dad and Uncle, showing up for school events, basketball games. Whatever needed to be done for his kids, he did it!” He helped with homework, attended PTA meetings and loved hanging out with his children. They were his treasure; a fantastic godfather to his niece and nephew. He was a good and caring husband. Kevin had a special relationship with each of his aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, colleagues and many many many many friends. Kevin treated everyone he came in contact with like family. He traveled far and wide to stay connected with family and friends. He would go out of his way to help strangers. If you were in his circumference, you were looked out for if you knew him or not. All that knew him were blessed because he made all of us feel loved and special. Kevin played a special part in each of our lives and loved all of us unconditionally.
Kevin loved playing basketball and had a reputation as a very good player with a radar-like jump shot that never missed. Kevin could beat anyone just taking jump shots. He was always the front leader on projects he got involved in. Kevin was well known and had the status of a celebrity. Kevin and his brother look so much alike. People everywhere would yell at his brother from a distance, with passion and admiration, "what's up Kev?" as if they were so happy to see him only to find out it was his little brother. Kevin was also an advent reader, a builder, loved going to the movies, loved binge watching television, loved camping, exercising, had a unique sense of humor and very silly.
Kevin departed his life on May 9, 2020 to join his beloved father. He leaves to mourn and cherish his mother, Marguerite, his wife, Josephine, sons Kevin and Darell, daughters, Aisha and Keveena, grandchildren KJ, Kacey, Ethan, Reyna, brothers Kerry and Damon, sisters Kim, Kay, and Peachie, Aunt Rhonda, Aunt Delores, Aunt Loretta, Uncle Earl, close friend Flex and a host of cousins, relatives and friends.
Kevin will be severely missed and his imprint on our lives will be forever embedded. The world has lost a great, loving, lovable, kind and strong man. He was a good person and a good man. I mean a GOOD PERSON and a GOOD MAN. Kevin will always be remembered for the rest of our lives. He was our king and our angel.
