A Needham High School and Plymouth State College graduate, he went on to earn his masters degree in education from Cambridge College. Kevin was a teacher and coach in the Medway public school system for over 35 years, where he met Gwen. He coached multiple sports, serving as head football coach and athletic director for the Medway Mustangs. He also coached youth and high school sports in Franklin, where he coached his sons. A leader and mentor to many, Medway High School honored him by naming its gymnasium after him in 2007. Kevin and his family enjoyed a deep love of the outdoors, especially camping and hiking.

Kevins older sister (Jeanne Clark) was married to my cousin David.  We attended his memorial service and it was packed with friends, fellow coaches and students.  It was amazing.  Medway has a relatively new high school, and the gyn is named in Kevins honor.
