Carney.
Kevin graduated from " The Poland Seminary" and was a talented mechanic. He spent his work life as an ASE certified Master Technician. Kevin was one-of-a-kind with a wicked sense of humor and a huge heart. He was proudly sober for 31 years. A feat he worked extremely hard to accomplish. He was a diehard hockey fan (specifically his Detroit Red Wings and the USHL Youngstown Phantoms). He also enjoyed motor sports and was known to run the pit crew for friends who were racing. He took up his father’s love of vegetable gardening and grew his own year after year.
Most of all, though, he lived for his family. He made it a point to tease and have special rituals.
Per Kevin’s wishes, he will be cremated, and a memorial celebration of his life will be held Sunday May 21, 2023 2pm at Cornerstone Assembly of God, 185 W.South Range Rd. North Lima 44452.
