Kevin Patrick Archambault, June 27, 1977 - January 10, 2022. Husband to Randolph Loder, son of William and Mary Jo Archambault, brother to Bill (Jamie) Archambault, Colleen (Tom) Watson, and Michaela (Mike) Montour. Also survived by nephews and nieces - Will Archambault, Katie Archambault (Arnold Ng), Cameron Watson, Sabrina Watson, and Logan Montour along with many cousins.
Kevin graduated from the Denver School of the Arts (drama) in 1995. He attended St. Edwards University in Austin Texas where he majored in Theater and Drama. Kevin graduated Cum Laude and was awarded the Deacon Crain award recognizing him as the outstanding theater student in 1999. After graduation he worked for several years for the Austin Musical Theater Company acting and teaching. During these years he worked on over 60 productions, mostly as an actor. In 2001 he moved to New York and then to the Hudson Valley area. He auditioned for a play at the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck and that began many years of acting, directing, choreographing and teaching at the theater. He did 34 productions in his time at the Center plus other productions in the area. At the time of his death, he was Artistic Director for the Center.
As Kevin so poignantly pointed out in his video that he made to be played after his death and can be found on Facebook under the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck, he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in October 2020. He remained positive to the end as he forged his last battle.
There will be a Celebration of Life for him in the Hudson Valley area of New York in the spring/summer.
There will be a Mass of Christian Burial for him in Denver, CO at a future date.
Kevin will be greatly missed by his husband, family, and family of friends. He was a bright light who touched us all, and, although he is gone, his light lives on in all our hearts. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
There are no events scheduled.
This is devastating news. I worked with Keven on several shows. A tremendous talent and a delightful person to be with. So very sad.
Kevin brought so much light to the world in his way too short life. My heartfelt sympathy to his husband, family and the wide circle of theater family and friends.
My heart aches for Kevin’s husband, parents,siblings,all of his family and friends. I knew him as a child and remember him for his beautiful smile, artistic talents,and kindness to all. He was such a special person and will be missed. Jan Winget
Kevin was a very special person. His talent, generosity, enthusiasm, and integrity touched so many lives across a wide spectrum. The local theatre community, and the entire community, has been enriched by his presence. Our collective hearts are breaking for Rand, his parents, and siblings. I pray you always do watch over us, Kevin. We love you.
