He was born on August 8th, 1966 in Hartford, to Martin and Jean (Hodgins) Graham. Kevin enjoyed the ride. Never once did he pass up the opportunity to do something new. He always put others before himself and protected his family and friends no matter what. We learned many lessons from "Kev"; only open one cereal box at a time, always use a coaster under your drink, the less clothes you can wear around the house the better, see the world, meet new people, and how to be a father, friend, a lover, a husband, a man.
The love of his life was Donna, and through the 30 years he spent with her, they endured craziness, hard times, good times, laugh-till-you-cry moments, but most of all they experienced what it's like to feel true love. Kevin is survived by one son; Adam, and a "bonus daughter"; Melissa to whom he passed on valuable life lessons and showed them how to truly have a good time. His favorite vacation spot was the "Love Shack" which he spent many summers fixing it up and drinking beers with some of his favorite people; Wendy & Dave.
Kevin's hobbies were hockey, golf, bar hopping with one of his best buds; Mark, and of course (as a result of mid-life crises) riding his Harley, driving his Corvette and the occasional skydive. A little bit of Kevin will live on in each and every person he knew and he will never be forgotten.
Kevin will be dearly missed by his brothers Barry and Donnie, his sister Wendy, his mother Jean, nieces and nephews Nick, Alex, Matt, Miranda, Mike, Annie, Julie, David and Amber, his friends Keryn, Shawn, Steve, Marty, Mark, Adam, Rich and countless more. You will be missed more than you can imagine Kevin, but we will never forget all that you have taught us.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at 1:00 PM at Newkirk and Whitney Funeral Home, 318 Burnside Avenue, East Hartford, CT, 06108. Burial is private and at the convenience of the family. Calling hours will be at the funeral home at 11:00 AM, two hours before services begin.
