The Wilk family of Sarasota and Chicago offers its deepest sympathy and condolences to Kevin's family and friends. We lived 2 doors away from his Auntie Jean on Merrimac in Chicago before moving down to Florida. When Kevin was with the White Sox he played pitcher and catcher with the kids on the street on our front lawns. He always had time and something for the kids. In later years, he always found away to get me a ball at a ballgame no matter what stadium I was at in the USA and I been at a lot of them regardless of coaching or playing. One of the best moments with Kevin was in Houston Game 4 of the World Series. He had Houston police and Ushers stop me from going to the washroom and dinner since he wanted to give a ball and take a picture with me. We flew in from Chicago. He thought the occasion was significant and thought the White Sox would win that day and they did.

Again, get ready to pitch in Heaven. You are the best!!!!!!!!!!!

To The Hickey Family (Jimmy, Bucky, Karen, Sam & Mom)
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your brother Kevin. I know you are a close knit family and I can't imagine the pain you are feeling right now from your loss. I want to send flowers but I am stuck in the middle of the Caribbean working a cruise ship. Please accept my deepest condolences. You are all in my prayers. Rest in Peace Kevin. Love,

I first met Kevin in 1975, Marshalltown, Iowa, the 16" National softball tournament. It was Danans vs the Strikers, the defending champs. I can remember as if it was yesterday, Kevin was playing centerfield, we were down by a run and we had two men on base. I hit the ball over Kevin's head, all of us scored and we had defeated the defending champs. But...
The past 4 years, my daughter and I traveled to Arizona to watch the Sox train. Every year, I'll find Kevin and yell to him.. "Kevin. 1975, Marshalltown, Iowa!" His big smile and a thumbs-up always had us laughing. Next year, I will miss Kevin. Although, we are not mutual friends, I feel that he is a friend to me.
RIP, Kevin. Our Sox world has lost a great individual, gone, but never forgotten.
