Condolences for Kevin Lee Nicholson

Mike Fedida posted on 6/6/19

One of my fondest memories is when Kev was in high school and he and i were working at "The Watch Stop". He had finally gotten me to cut my hair which people had tried to get me to do for literal years without success. So him, Grey, and I walked over to Kelly's and he talked me into it as well as changing what i was wearing from rags to nice cloths which ultimately changed me in a way. I'm not sure where i would of ended up had not gotten me to do something so small because i was going down a bad road. I have so many memories of Kevin but it stands out because a small part of him is still with me. He had the ability sell snow to an eskimo or talk you down when things felt like they were too much. Even though he was my brothers Jason's friend first he and i quickly bonded and became really good friends even though i was younger then him he never held it against me. I can only take solace that your In a better place Kev and your looking down on us! God Bless you man you were an amazing person, A good friend, and someone i will never forget!!! You touched my life and i will alway be appreciative for having gotten to know you my friend!

I wanted to talk about Kevin at his service, but I was feeling too sad and knew I couldn't make it through a talk without breaking down. I want to share a funny memory involving him. This probably would have been from around 2001 or 2002. My future wife Abby and I were living in Washington, D.C. Kevin and his cousin Junior came to visit us from Va Beach. They came by Greyhound. They had to change buses in Richmond, and it seems the ride from Richmond to D.C. was an interesting experience. There were no actual drivers available to drive that bus, so Greyhound got a Richmond depot employee to do it. The guy didn't know the route and just winged it, and it seems the ride became pretty colorful, with a lot of back and forth between the driver and the passengers, them getting lost a few times when making stops in towns along the route, etc. Other passengers might have been panic stricken or gotten scared and upset and later put in a complaint to Greyhound, but both Kevin and Junior loved every second of it. They were beside themselves when they finally got to D.C., laughing hysterically and telling us over and over the story of their misadventures on the bus ride. As I think about Kevin now, I want to remember all the parts I know about him. Not just the fun or easy things. But it IS nice at this moment to remember how he looked when he was laughing, which he did so often. Arriving in D.C. that night, with his cousin who was often more like a brother to him, he was excited and funny and full of laughs. In the days after, we had a great time showing them both around the city.

Kevin, my beautiful nephew. So many memories. Your firm convictions on any and every topic, and how you remained unshakable even after lengthy debate. The spirit you exuded around others. The joy in your smile and laugh. The nicknames you gave your aunt and uncles from such an early age. I miss you profoundly, and my sorrow runs deep and wide. But I know your spirit remains, with your mom, with your grandma and with all others you touched. I love you.

I will always remember Kevin for being a pleasant guy. . He loved his family and friends, his pets and comics, music...etc. It's a shame, but I pray you are in peace now. He was a friend of my families. Even my mother had the chance to work with him, and she enjoyed him just as much as the rest of us. God bless you bro. There's a lot of people who will miss you.

Kevin, I'm still having trouble believing you are gone. I'll always remember arguing with you about everything under the sun. Rest easy, my friend. My sincerest condolences to your family.

Kevin, I will always cherish our time together. You genuinely cared about people and were such a good person. You had a way of reading people and fixing our problems. I missed looking for during our shifts and talking for hours. You were such a proud papa to Monkey and loved showing us pics. I loved hearing you sing and joke. You were a beautiful person and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you and call you a friend. Rest in Heaven Buddy!

I’m Kevin’s Uncle Brian. I love reading his friends’ thoughts about him, because they confirm, and add to, what I know about him. Kevin was a deep thinker and a caring guy, who could also just be a load of fun to have some laughs with. He started engaging me in political discussions when he was around six. Later in his life, we bonded over music, comic books, and our family’s history. We laughed together so many times. Thank you to his friends who are posting thoughts here. It means a lot to me, and to my mother his Grandma Greene, and I know my sister Karen will be moved when reading them. Kevin was loved, as he deserved to be.

I had the pleasure of working with Kevin for a while. I got to know him and enjoyed beding around him. He had a very warm heart and genuine concern for other people's well being. His sense of humor was awesome. I would like to express my condolences to his family, I know that this is very hard, but take comfort in knowing that he is in a much better place, with no pain. RIP my friend, until we meet again on the other side.

Kevin, I always called you my BD (Baby Daddy), and we carried that joke for years. You are a tender soul, one who loved deeply and have an intelligence that is other worldly. Thank you for sharing a small part of your life intertwined with mine. I had an experience the day before you left us. The vibrational energy around me was high, and I have no doubt you were reaching out. I love you, and I’ll miss you.

My parents took me away from my childhood home and all of the friends I’d grown up with the summer before my senior year of high school. It should’ve been a horrible year, except that I met Kevin. So many wonderful memories, from cruising in his blue neon to hanging out in theatre class to hanging out with our group of friends. Those sparkling eyes, the way his watch never fit, the way he’d get so heated in discussions... he was a terrific guy and I’m so happy I had the privilege of calling him a friend. Rest In Peace, Kevy Kev.

I had the privilege of meeting and working with Kevin back in 2003. We found common interest in comic books,music and of course political talks. Kevin was a definite unique soul and a good friend. My heart goes out to his family and to all of his friends. Rest in peace to my brother. I love you man.
