Those of you that know Kevin, know that he would do anything for you. You didn’t even have to ask and he was there, helping, whether you wanted him to or not. He was no stranger to bad days, as we all are, but Kevin had the amazing ability to put himself aside and lift others when they were experiencing troubles. He held many different employment positions throughout his life, beginning young as a landscaping foreman and associate at the funeral home of the O’Boyle families. Kevin was co-owner of Collaborated Credit as well as an Outreach Coordinator at Next Chapter Addiction Treatment in Delray, FL. He was Partners at both Starseed Technologies and People’s Tax Relief. Kevin’s most recent accomplishment was as a Realtor at EXIT Realty Mizner in Boca Raton. We know that Kevin volunteered with and was employed by many other companies and organizations during his life, surely giving his absolute best effort at every position. As noted on one of his social media sites, he listed his Professional Skills as “Love of Everything”.
Kevin was a devoted son, brother, grandson, godfather, nephew, cousin, uncle, friend, confidant, mentor, sponsor, coworker, comedian, prankster and quite simply a man’s man of character and quiet strength. With friendships, Kevin saw no class, color, gender, creed, status, limitations or impossibilities. One could be a delivery man or the CEO of a newspaper company, Kevin had the ability to speak with anyone on many levels. He treated all with respect and genuine concern for their well-being. He had a special way of making everyone feel as though they were the most important person and could accomplish anything that they put their mind to, just as he had done in so many ways. Kevin had several passions – fantasy sports leagues, weekly movie nights with his friends, going to the beach, paddle boarding, attending meetings and most of all, searching for the mind body connection through the practice of yoga and clean eating. Kevin enjoyed traveling and was able to travel in to places such as Hong Kong, South America-Costa Rica, Panama City and Canal, Spain and several US cities. Family was of most importance to Kevin, often being called ‘the favorite’ by his late grandmother, Margaret M. O’Boyle, always being there for whomever needed him.
Kevin’s laugh was the most beautiful, infectious laugh you could imagine. It was an honor to anyone to have been at the heel of his jokes. Kevin never left an argument unresolved, often apologizing and giving a hug and I love you to ensure you knew that he truly did not hold animosity in his heart. To quote again, a post on his social media site, his ‘Favorite Quote’ is “Per omnia saecula saeculorum – World without end”. Kevin will forever remain in all of our worlds, without end.
Kevin is survived by his mother Margaret “Peggy” O’Boyle Dunigan; sisters Peggy Dunigan Scherer and her husband Richard, Susan Dunigan, Nora Dunigan Smeltzer and her late husband Steven, Treacy Dunigan, and Elizabeth Dunigan; his two cherished nieces Hannah Scherer and Kayley Scherer, aunts and uncles; Kathleen O’Boyle and Bob O’Donnell, Michael and Mary O’Boyle, Maureen and Tom McAlea, Mary Kay and Vincent O’Rourke, Marty and Judy O’Boyle, Rosemary and Patrick LePore, Grace Swab, Doris and Bill Tenety. Kevin is also survived by many cousins, in addition to both lifelong and newly found friends.
