Kevin touched the lives of many. He was a wise and charismatic man and a true entrepreneur. He had a kind and giving heart and a contagious sense of humor!

He was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer at the young age of 57 in 2015. It had gone undetected despite regular checkups, sadly the cancer had metastasized. Kevin was given a terminal diagnosis and given less than a year to live. On Friday November 23rd 2018, Kevin Quin lost his strong battle with cancer surrounded by friends and family. He fought hard and blessed his family with 3 years of life after his initial prognosis.

Knowing he was fighting a loosing battle, he wanted to ensure his beautiful wife of of 36 years, Joan was going to be safe and secure in a home of her own. Kevin had a dream. A dream that he spent the last 3 years planning, designing and engineering. Sadly he didn't get to see it through to fruition, it has the foundation laid, but no walls or roof. We ask for your help during this difficult time. All donations will go toward finishing Kevin's Dream.

All donations will be received by Kevin's wife Joan Quin and will go toward helping her complete Kevin's last wish. Any offer of help is gladly accepted in any form, Joan wont be able to do this alone! We would like to thank everyone who has been with us, reached out to us, and kept our family in your prayers.

Thank you for helping, this will mean the world to Kevin!

Thank you on behalf of Kevin and his family.

Use of funds

Funds will be used for funeral costs and the completion of Kevin's dying wish, the humble home he planned, designed and engineered for his wife Joan Quin. When his Dream is completed it will proudly be shared with all his Family and Friends. Thank you for your love and support.

Kevin continuously inspired me to view everything with awe, as if it may be the last time, and had a contagious charm that made everyone feel loved with his big smile and his heart. I know that none of us will ever forget him and the influence he had on each one of us (especially Joan, Shauvon, Tara and Paul) in shaping our outlook towards life.
