Obituary of Kevin Robert Giacomo
It is with overwhelming sorrow, we announce the passing of Kevin Giacomo, 28 years young. He was born on August 24, 1993. He passed on August 27, 2021 at home. Kevin was one of the nicest, kindest people we ever knew. He loved every single activity/sport, hockey, golf, long boarding, baseball, hiking – you name it. As long as he was surrounded by people, he was happy. It didn’t have to be people he knew, just people. If you were in need of anything he would do whatever you needed. That’s the way he was. Everyone who had the honor of knowing him loved him. Kevin had a light about him that radiated from his soul. I think his goal was to make us all feel good, or better yet, laugh. He definitely succeeded.
Kevin worked as a Sales Account Specialist. He loved not only his job, but he loved the people he worked with as well. Things were going well in his life.
For a time, Kevin was living with friends out in Colorado. He loved it out there, the beautiful, panoramic scenery, and all of the activities, camping, hiking, snowboarding, and spending time with his best friends. These were some of the best years of his life.
After those years in Colorado Kevin felt it was time to come home and live near his family once again. In this period, we were lucky enough to be surrounded by him and his many passions which included music. Once he was gifted a record player by his cousin Lindsay, he found a new joy, and he was never more excited. Tuning the record player and getting it working properly was a labor of love. Soon as it was up and running the collecting of records began. His collection started with his parents’ old records. Kevin loved music, but like his personality, he had a silly way of picking them. Kevin was sure to go for the albums with the funky and abstract artwork.
Kevin was a man of exquisite taste; this allowed two of his passions to marry together perfectly, golf and looking like a polished stud. He loved getting ready to golf almost as much as he loved golfing. To know Kevin was to know you may walk into Johnson and Murphy looking for a singular shirt, but you were going to spend at least an hour and a half in the store deciding upon the winner.
Once Kevin took to the course to play in his new and snazzy outfit, he was ready to rumble. He loved the sport, but he may have possibly loved the golf carts just a touch more. Kevin rode the golf cart like he was in the woods behind his childhood home on one of his quads. He loved to push the limits and would have his passengers wishing there were seatbelts by the time they reached the second hole.
Kevin was an absolute ray of sunshine, a wonderful son, the most perfect brother, a loving cousin and a truly great friend. There is not a word that accurately describes just how missed he will be.
Kevin is survived by his devoted parents, Valerie and Patrick; his siblings and best friends, Claire and Stephen. His Aunts and uncles, Colleen McAteer and Roger McAteer; Vicki and Frank Terelle; Geoffrey and Bonnylee Ames, cousins Lindsay Ingram, Cally Rundus, Deanna Donnelly, Christopher Terelle, Katy Herridge, Alyssa Ames-Sikora; Grandfather Richard Ames; Great-uncle Anthony Giacomo.
