I first met Kevin from Our Lady of the Assumption School.  Years later I remember seeing him in church with his growing family.  I am glad that he was able to leave his mark with a large loving family as well as with his volunteer work with Lynnfied Youth Sports.

Kevin, after becoming a teacher, an honorable profession we all know, worked for an auto insurance company. He would always look me up in the body shop I worked in. Always a treat.
