I am shocked to just learn of Kevin’s passing. I worked with Kevin for years. He as a medic with Peel and I am an RN in Trillium Emergency department - M site. Always a gentle and caring person. One of the best medics I had the pleasure of working with. My condolences to his family and friends

As a nurse at Mississauga Hospital we would see Kevin every once in awhile as he would bring in a patient to our ward. He was always kind and very thoughtful and caring to his patient. He had a great sense of humour and was just an all around really nice man. Deepest sympathy to his family. He will be missed.

I really don't have the words to convey the sadness that my wife and I are feeling over Kevin's passing. He has been a fixture in our lives for more years than we can remember. when i was finally old enough to hang out with my brother Kim and go golfing and fishing with him and friends, Kevin was always a part of it and his presence and his zest for life have provided us with unbelievable memories that we will cherish forever. R.I.P JOE. We will miss you. Love Kelly & Kimberly Crossman

I am sorry and deeply saddened by your loss. Kevin was a great paramedic. He was a man that was great under pressure. He was kind, gentle and caring when it mattered most. I partnered with Kevin for about 7 years on the job. We socialized off the job as well. A great sense of humor and well he lived life to the fullest. Kevin was best man at my wedding. I thank him for all that he imparted on me. RIP my friend.
Michael Butt and Karen Boddy and family.
