    Condolences to the Swindells family. I always looked up to Kevin because of his kind soul, he did a lot for me and my family. I’ve never met someone with as big of a heart as Kevin. I always thought so highly of him and still always will, Kevin will always have a huge spot in my heart. My favourite memory of Kevin was when we would stop at the coffee time on my way to school and he would buy me a donut every morning. I Love you Kevin thank you for everything Rest in Peace. ❤️❤️❤️

    Karen, Bill, Andrew, Lori and the kids.  My deepest condolences to you all. I remember when he was born and taking him for walks up Simcoe Street and he could name the cars as we walked.  His knowledge of vehicles and sports was amazing.  Over the years we had many chats.  I know that Uncle Gord was waiting for him at the Pearly Gates.  He was met by many relatives.  Rest in peace Kevin.  My your wings spread high and wide.

Kevin is deeply missed and will never be forgotten. RIP buddy, see you when we get there

    Your time here was short, but your presence on everyone with whom you crossed paths was impactful.  Jim and I fondly remember how welcoming you and your  Dad and Mum were when we first joined the OCHL family. I will miss our talks during the OCHL tournaments where you always volunteered all day and night.
      Your smile, and gentle kindness will stay with me all my days until such time that we can talk about the Leafs one day in Heaven. Until that time keep cheering for them from above as it just might help us win that coveted Stanley cup!

    When I come to the end of the road
    And the sun has set for me,
    I want no rites in a gloom-filled room,
    Why cry for a soul set free!
    Miss me a little - but not for long
    And not with your head bowed low.
    Remember the love that we once shared,
    Miss me, but let me go.
    For this journey that we all must take
    And each must go alone;
    It's all a part of the Master's plan
    A step on the road to home.
    When you are lonely and sick at heart
    Go to the friends we know,
    And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
    Miss me, but let me go.
    - Edgar Albert
    Rest in Paradise Kevin forever in my heart... Love you
