I was so sorry to hear of Kevin's passing. He was my next door neighbor growing up. Our little gang of boys grew up together on First Avenue getting into trouble, and a lot of memories from those days include a very young Kevin. We didn't see much of each other past middle school, but my memories of that time always make me smile.
