Condolences

Condolence From: Michael Gaffney
Condolence: I express my saddened thoughts about the passing of Kevin. It had been many years since I moved away from New Hartford, and my trips up there are few and far between, but how could anyone forget the great times we had growing up near the McEaneys? All the times we camped on the hill, all the minibikes, snowmobiles, cars, and who knows what else we rebuilt in Kevin and Mikes garage. All the times in the bunkhouse, the forts we built in the woods... Goodbye my friend. May you rest in peace with your parents who have gone before you.

Condolence: I'm saddened to hear of Kevin's passing. I was in high school while he was in elementary and middle school. Even with the age difference, whenever I walked past their house, I'd see him in the garage or in the yard. We'd have a cheerful shouted greeting back and forth, and he'd show me what he was working on or tinkering with. The photos of Kevin with his kids shows his sensitivity. I wish his family all the best.
Sincerely,

Peter Cunningham

Condolence: I was very sad to hear that Kevin has passed. I grew up with Kevin, I lived in the white house on the corner of Rosedale and Merritt Place. I moved there when I was five. We had a great childhood, the woods behind our houses were wide open and we explored every inch of them. We played Matchbox cars in the dirt and rode our bikes everyplace. At times we were Altar Boys together and in Scouts. I think we even played on the same minor league baseball team, American Asphalt. We built forts in the woods and went sledding in the winter. You would be hard pressed to find a better childhood anyplace in America. We were the lucky few. I remember his aunt Jenny very fondly and his cousin Jimmy, a real piece of work. As the 60’s gave way to the 70’s, I remember Mrs. McEaney giving me a birthday card when I turned 10. It had 10 dimes in it and I felt rich! Every decade has its own character and the 70’s was a special time. 1976 was America’s bicentennial, we decorated our bikes and went to the town park for the fireworks. Merritt Place and Clinton Road had lots of great kids living but a bike ride away.
The neighborhood back in the day, would echo with my mom calling me home from the McEaney’s...ah...ah...JOE! As the decade passed kids started getting cars and and the 70’s vibe shifted to...well, what the 70’s became known for or as sex, drugs and rock & roll.

Kevin was a couple of years older than me and our paths diverged. I was getting into sports and he was taking classes (autobody) and BOSCS. I remember one day he told me he was moving to AZ, and then he did. And that was about it, I saw him maybe twice since. I don’t get back to New Hartford much myself. My dad sold our house in 1986 and he passed in ‘96. My in mom in ‘85.

The last time I saw Kevin for some reason we were in his car and the ashtray was overflowing with cigarettes butts and I recalled having seen the same with his dad some 20 years before - don’t smoke kids! I saw the news of the house in the OD, I felt sad for not having been there to help in some way - Habitat for Humanity should be where we help our neighbors and not just some strangers.

I pray Kevin is in a happy place and as a good Irishmen, tonight, I will lift a whiskey in his honor. I hope his note helps his kids and grandkids know that the kind of childhood Kevin and I enjoyed is the kind you see in a Norman Rockwell painting or read in a book. A happy one. God Bless!
