Many years ago, Kevin, my sister Linda and I were watching Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" on TV at our house. Kev was sitting in a recliner and my sister and I were sitting on the couch between the TV and the recliner. The suspense is climbing, and sound of flapping wings is coming from the spare room. Just as the leadng lady opens the door, all the birds attack. My sister was holding a full glass of soda with ice. She screams and throws up her hands in sheer terror. All the soda and ice fly out of the glass and cover Kevin, head to toe. He laughed and took it all in stride.

Dear Ruth, Kevin and Travis,

I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and father. I have worked with Kevin for almost all of the 17 years he worked at The Children's Home. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and with Kevin as he rests in peace. He was always so proud of you! We are going to miss him so very much.

Eventhough your hearts are "heavy", May memories bring a smile.

I worked with Kevin at the Poughkeepsie Children's Home and participated with him in the Fantasy Football league. I enjoyed his conversation,witt, and sense of humor.

My deepest sympathy to you all.

Kevin made us feel welcome at the lake and was always a happy face and voice for us. Bill enjoyed talking to Kevin recently about his jogging and walking. He was a great guy, and his loss will change the lake atmosphere.

My sympathy is with you all during this difficult time. I am a ex-co worker of your beloved Kevin, I worked with Him for 7 years at the children home, and always enjoyed talking with Kevin. I'm so sorry to hear He is gone from here, so happy to know He is with his God. May God comfort you all. Willie Reed

I just sat down to view what had been on this site and thank everyone for all their kind words. They mean more to us than I can even begin to try to convey.

I know now that we won't be the only ones who will miss Kevin.

Kevin, Travis and I thank you all.

I will truly miss a great co-worker. Rest in Peace.

J Janene Prokes on Apr 18, 2017

Kevin has been my boss at the Children's Home of Poughkeepsie for 3 years, and I will miss him more than words can say. I will miss his hearty laugh, his grunts and groans when something went wrong, and his great sense of humor. It won't be the same without you, Kevin! We will love and miss you always.
