Kevin was an avid sports fan, his favorites were the Red Sox and the New England Patriots. He also followed the Celtics and Bruins.

Kevin enjoyed staying up to date on world events, he never missed the news. He enjoyed watching reality television shows such as Greatest Catch, Undercover Boss, Gold Rush, Tanked and Pawnstars. He loved TV, and even his sixty five inch flat screen started to become too small to him.
Holidays were major events for Kevin, he looked forward to surprising the kids at Christmas and watching their faces light up. On holidays he spoiled everyone, especially his Grandson Ryan, and Ethan and Mason. Kevin always referred to the boys as “my little buddy” “my best friend”.
