Smith, Kevin William

Kevin William Smith, 56, of Farmington, loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend, passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on July 1st, 2020.
Kevin loved spending time with his family, especially when playing cards. Kevin was an outdoorsman; his passions included fishing, golfing and cheering on his beloved Red Sox. He enjoyed his outings with his mom to the grocery store, numerous golf practice rounds with his dad, and spending time with his dear nieces and nephews. Kevin was a friend to all, and showed kindness to everyone. His favorite annual trip to Hawk’s Nest Beach combined all of his loves-being outdoors, playing cards with family, fishing and golfing.
Kevin is survived by his loving parents, Bill and Anita Smith of Farmington; his sisters Gail Baker and her husband Ray of Simsbury and their children Megan, Kelsey and Brett Baker; Karen Smith and her husband Gene Duarte of Avon and their children Drew, Haley and Brooke Duarte; his aunt and uncle Debbie and Phil Tierney; his special cousins Glenn, Scott, Joy, Rick, Michael, Lynn, Donna and Ron and friends who will miss him dearly. He was predeceased by three cousins Cheryl, Ken and Gary. He was also godfather to Ryan, Brooke and Pria.
Prior to his retirement due to a work related injury, Kevin was a manager at Freihofers, Paul Arpin and Gilmore Furniture.

    I worked with Kevin at Freihofer’s in Cromwell for about 8 years, and I’d like to think we were friends too. I remember Kevin and his big smile, and how much fun it was working with him. The world will be that much darker and emptier now that his light is gone! We will miss you!

    Kevin will be missed. He was always kind and friendly. I will miss him waving as he would walk by and see me working in my office. One of my best memories is him stopping by when he saw me studying for my degree and always have words of encouragement or just sit and talk.
    Even though I can not come to pay my respects, my prayers are with the family. You could always see how much Kevin loved his family. God bless

  5. Henry Funari says:

    This was a great loss to us. Kevin had a good soul. He always was a pleasure to hang out with, we will miss him very much.
    We hope he is fishing with Gary, Ken and Cheri. Our very best to the entire family of the Three Queens and a heart full sorry for your loss. Love Christine and Henry.
