As a young man he was educated at Jesuit College of Clongowes Wood in County Kildare, later graduating from University College Dublin. For most of his professional career Kevin worked in the telecommunications field, first with Northern Telecom and then as a private consultant. Kevin is best characterized as a person with a tremendous thirst for knowledge and love of learning. This was never more evident that in the final weeks of his life as he debated the world around him and as always, rendered thoughtful opinion. He was a compulsive crossword enthusiast, a voracious reader, a critical listener of music, and his love of travel prompted visits to various locations around the globe. He is survived by his daughter Jennifer (Toronto), sisters Detta, Baroness O'Cathain (England) and Mary-Claire Ward (Toronto), brother-in-law Sandy, and nephews David and Robin. He was predeceased by his father Caoimhghin and his mother Margaret. At Kevin's request there will be no funeral service. The family would like to thank the staff at the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre, May Court Residential Hospice, Cathy Langtry of the VON, special nurses Diane Turner, Charlene "Charlie" O'Dougherty and Marg Graham; Doctors Neil Rogers, Louise Coulombe and Claire Kendall.
