An avid cook, he was well known for his lobster boils and his love of seafood. Every year on Shrove Tuesday, he delighted his staff at the bank by preparing a full pancake breakfast for them. Kevin's grandchildren were also his pride and joy. In his retirement, he enjoyed teaching them how to play baseball and taking them to the park to play. During his final years living in Chapleau, he spent 8 months at the Bignucolo Residence before moving back into his little house by the river.
