McLaughlin, Kevin

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our husband, father, papa, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and friend Kevin John McLaughlin at the young age of 58. He leaves behind his best friend and beautiful wife Sheila (McGowan) McLaughlin, his three daughters Paige (Jake), Lesley (Kevan) and Courtney McLaughlin, his granddaughter Keira Sohm, his sister Merilyn Peterkins, and his many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in passing by his loving mother Bessie (Anderson) McLaughlin and devoted father Joseph McLaughlin. Kevin passed away after a short but brave battle with pancreatic cancer. Just as he handled all experiences in life, Kevin managed his illness with strength and resilience, and wanting to spend as much time with his loved ones as possible. On his final day, he was with his loving wife, Sheila, who he adored more than anything else in the world. Those who knew Kevin knew how selfless, thoughtful, and kind he could be. If he wasn’t working around the house trying to make the best life for him, his wife, and his children, he could be found watching NASCAR, a pastime he shared with his mother, working on his Firebird Trans Am, or listening to music how he liked it, loud. As we grieve his loss, we will cherish all our fond memories we shared with him and the powerful impact his life had on all of us. He was taken from us far too soon, but he will never be forgotten. There will be no visitation at this time. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

  6. Sheila, Marilyn and Family
    So sorry to read about the loss of Kevin. The McLaughlins were a big part of our family growing up. Bessie and Joe were so good to me, bringing me to all of the NOHA games Kevin played in. Haven’t seen Kevin in years but always thought of him. First thing that comes to mind is the Pit, sitting in the Breezeway at your home, and drinking beer in the car and listening to Poison at parties at your place. 🙂 Lots of good times with you both Sheila. Correct me if I am wrong but I think it was me that planted a bug in one of your ears that the other was interested.
    As time goes on we all get busy with our lives. Just in the last couple of years, Gail and I and Kevin George talked about just popping in on Kevin. It is with the deepest regret that i/we didn’t.
    Sincere Condolences Sheila ❤️
