Kevin Walsh born August 30, 1969, peacefully entered into eternal life on May 16, 2014, surrounded by family and friends at Pomerado Hospital. Kevin had battled since an early age of 15 with health problems from diabetes to kidney dialyses, followed by a double transplant, pancreas and kidney, in 2005, and multiple complications from related illnesses. |
Kevin was born in the Clairemont area of San Diego in 1969 and moved to Ramona in 1978. He lived in Ramona for most of his life except for about 10 years in Hemet area. Kevin was a graduate of Ramona High School and was well known in the community as a happy and positive friend, brother and son.
Kevin had a relationship with the Lord and often quoted Psalms 23 knowing he was protected and would someday enter the Kingdom.
He held various jobs throughout his life when his illnesses were under control, primarily in the customer service fields working at K-Mart Ramona, Poway Target, Toyota of Escondido, and Gosch Ford of Hemet.
Kevin had a passion for helping others in the community and especially loved to spend time with all his nieces and nephews. He was a passionate football fan devoted to his favorite team since childhood, the Denver Broncos, and he idolized the sport of Motocross and actively rode motorcycles all through his younger years.
Kevin is survived by his mother, Judy Jones Walsh of Ramona; brothers, Edward P. (Sheree) Walsh, Timothy J. (Deidre) Walsh, and Daniel J. Walsh all of Ramona; and nieces and nephews in Ramona, Alexis, Skylar, Finley, Shea, Madison, Mackenzie and Faith.
A Celebration of life will be held on Saturday, May 24, 2014, at 10am at Calvary Chapel Ramona, 114 14th St. The family welcomes friends to join us for a reception afterwards at 12:30pm at brother Tim Walsh's residence in Ramona.
