It is time for another Hero in our series. It has taken me a little while to write this one because Kevin is one of our favorite friends. Anyone that knows him might just say they are Kevin's "best friend." He made you feel that way at least.

We spent last Easter with him and his family. They invited us over for every Christmas Eve and 4th of July we lived in San Clemente. One of my daughter's favorite memories is ice blocking a few days before Christmas with my husband and Kevin. He is a man that makes you want to be better. We think of him often and my girls know that when we say Work Hard, Play Harder..it originates with Kevin.

He fought a strong fight against cancer last year and passed away on September 20, 2011.

When I asked his wife Abby if I could include him in the Hero series, she agreed quickly without any objections. She even said Kevin would surely be honored to link himself with a higher tax on cigarettes:) You would maybe need to know Kevin and his unadultered humor to understand why that made me laugh out loud.

Vote Yes on 29. Vote for a cure.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend Kevin. I hope this passes, more money goes to research and more lives are saved.

    I'm voting YES!

  2. Such a good friend, father, husband, and doctor. An inspirational person and one who is truly missed, but remembered well.

    We have to find a cure for cancer.
