Not sure what to say?

I just found out today that Kevin had passed away almost two years ago. I worked with Kevin in Hazel Park, Mi back in 1974-5. I was quite a bit younger then Kevin and he was of course a former major league ballplayer. Never the less he could not have been a better friend a mentor to the fresh faced kid I was at the time. Thanks for all the great memories old friend and RIP.

I was known as BOB'S brother Howie, Mush lawlor and Frank Page or any one else who had car, would bring me to the games. I became the ball shagger. Kevin was over our house alot, he was always doing something to make me laugh. I will never forget the time I went to Shea Stadium to watch him play what a thrill. I was always asking BoB how Kevin was doing. My condolences. Jim Montagna

Fond memories on Tinkham Rd farm with the Collins family. My condolences. Lisa Sampson Taylor

Kevin was an even better person than he was an athlete, he will be missed by many of us.

Kevin was an amazing athlete and the consummate gentleman. I met him when I worked at The Springfield Newspapers with John and later enjoyed his friendship when I taught at Chestnut Jr. High. Sincere condolences to his wife and family.

Dear Linda. I am so shocked and sad to know Kevin is gone. I cherish all the years you have kept in touch with me, all the wonderful pictures that I am keeping forever. Kevin was always "bigger than life" in my eyes and I bragged about him a lot!! I look forward to seeing you & the family at the Memorial Service in our area. I'm so proud to be part of YOUR family.

Stunned and sadden at news of KC passing. If every there was a model of boy next door makes good/ all-American hero, Kevin was that in my eyes. He truly lived out dreams of all those who played sports along side of him. I played high school( tech 63) and legion baseball with KC, and when I pitched , was great to see Kevin at shortstop, fielding every ball on left side of field. Since we both dated cheerleaders, we often doubled dated in my 57 Chevy. Always followed his career with great...

Linda, Kelly and Michael,

We were so deeply shocked and saddened by the news of Kevin's passing. We are so very sorry of your loss. He was always a "big brother" to me growing up. Though I will miss my cousin terribly, I will always have those precious memories forever in my heart. We love you all and our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Rest in Peace with the Lord, Kevin.

Love, Larry and Sherry
