My deepest condolences. Kevin has serviced my yard since 2017 and has always done an immaculate job. I texted for service and when he didn’t response I felt something could be wrong. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Rest in Heaven Kevin!

Kevin was the most thoughtful person I’ve ever met. He was always diligent in his work, looked out for his friends, loved his family, his dog, and spoke well of his mother. His obituary was well written. I would like to know where his grave site it, if he has one so I may pay my respects. Even though I only knew him from a few jobs, I will miss him dearly. He had a good soul, may he rest in peace. Blessings to those who knew him on a personal level, so sorry to hear of your loss.

Kevin did lawn care for me for a couple years and was always kind and funny. When I went out for a night on the town with a girlfriend going through chemotherapy, he had left flowers for her by my door when we returned. Another time during a hurricane, when people were hoarding gas, Kevin offered me some of his. I'm so very sorry for your loss as he had a lot of admirable traits and was always looking out. I texted with him just a couple weeks ago and wondered why his phone wasn't working yesterday. I Googled and found this, and feel really sad about it. I hope you know that he did a lot of good, too.
