Born in Brockton, he was the son of the late William J. and Helen F. (Hall) Johnson.

He attended West Bridgewater Schools, Central Connecticut State University, where he majored in History and graduated with a degree in Law Enforcement from Anna Maria College. He played football & basketball of which he was Co-Captains of those teams and also played baseball while at WBHS.

Kevin was a dedicated police officer of the West Bridgewater Police Department for 35 years, most of which was on the midnight shift “training the new guys” retiring in 2005 as Sergeant.

A lifelong resident of West Bridgewater, he also loved his home in Bethel, VT escaping there with Ann any chance they could get, where he loved entertaining family and friends. His wife often called him the “grill master” with smoking ribs being his specialty. He had a myriad of interests including gardening, snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, fishing, hunting, boating, reading American and military history, astronomy and was an avid sports fan, especially the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He had the best smile in the whole world. Kevin was fun loving, full of joy, and was the “life of the party.” He was proud of obtaining two one day licenses to be a Justice of the Peace to officiate the weddings of two couples in Vermont.
