My heart goes out to Mrs. Finnerty and his immediate family.

I worked under Kevin for four years and he had a profound effect on my life. He certainly was reserved, but over time I began to learn many lessons not just in business but in life. My respect for him was immense and the lessons I have learned I will take with me and pass down to my own children.

I have had the privelege of knowing Kevin and he has made my life more fulfilled and my world a better place. The loss is painful and I will sorely miss him. God Bless him and the family in the time of loss.

Kevin was a customer of ours and when we learned of his passing, we were very saddened. He had come here for years and he was always kind and appreciative of the work we did for him. More than anything though was that Kevin was truly a genuine, respectful and well liked guy and we considered him more than a customer. We considered him a friend. When we saw him come in, we always enjoyed his presence and conversation. He was one of a kind! We will miss him.

God Bless him and his family. We are sorry for your loss.
