Eventually, Kevin left Belmont for Dedham, living there with his wife, Stacey, their sons; Kevin Jr. and Jake, and his dog, Chance, while working at National Grid for 17 years. He also had a passion for riding his Harley Davidson that stayed with him even after being diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer.
Last year in August, Kevin, a person his brother Patrick said had “a very big heart, and would do anything for anyone,” lost his battle with cancer.
Next week, Kevin’s loved ones and friends will remember the man who always had “a smile on his face and made people laugh” with an early autumn motorcycle ride beginning in his old hometown.
On Saturday, Oct. 4, “Kevin’s Memorial Ride” will start at “Skip” Viglirolo Skating Rink on Concord Avenue before riding through several communities. The ride will finish at Arlington’s Sons of Italy, 19 Prentiss Rd. just off Mass. Ave. where a celebration of Kevin’s life will be held beginning at 3 p.m.
Registration for the ride will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the lot next to the Skating Rink.
Donations may be made payable to “Kevin’s Memorial Ride” and can be sent to 53 Trowbridge Street, Belmont, MA 02478
Proceeds from the Ride will be used to establish a scholarship in Kevin’s name at his alma mater Belmont High School.
