Kev! Thank you for all the laughs, the big hugs, the solid advice.....your presence put me at ease immediately. Nobody made a better raspberry martini than you did! Rest easy my friend. We shall meet again. Watch over us! Much love for you Kev, sending you the biggest bear hug. .  .  .

Frankie, I love you and I miss you and when you see John and Mike give them a kiss from me. You were truly a wonderful friend and my life was better because I knew you.

Even though I only met Kevin a few times, his friendliness and humor were both large and present.  He was a friend immediately and will be genuinely missed.  Rest in peace, Kevin.

Love to all the Dennehy men - Richard, Paul, Brian, and Connor - I'm sure Kevin felt very blessed having his brothers and son with him at the end. He lives in all of you more than ever (check stories section).  XOXO Elizabeth and Mike Lynch

The brother I grew up with. Gone. Irreplacable memories. Irreplacable hole in my heart.

RIP Kevin, I will miss that larger than life smile and uninhibited bear hugs - "Come here Baby and give me a hug!!" Your unconditional love, power to make everyone at ease and your non judgmental ways were and will always be a comfort to me.  You were the bravest man I know and handled your illness with strength and dignity. All of your attributes live on in your beloved son Conor. xoxo

You are home now my brother and friend.  From lacing my skates as a 5 year old to lacing Declan's skates as a 5 year old, you were always there.  The unconditional space where you operated will be missed.  Your sense of humor and your love for family will always be remembered.  You will always be with me.  Love always.

I only met Kevin on maybe half a dozen occasions,but he still left a great impression on me. I think what I'll remember about him the most is his smile. He was quick to laugh at a story or line I'd throw at him and just as quick to offer his own. I can see his eyes light up and his teeth flash like he was standing in front of me. He was a good man. What better eulogy can any of us ask for?

You got your name as a result of your deep abiding respect for your Dad. We at SFC knew you as a man who brought great affection, loyalty, and love to us all. Something very special came into the room when that big Irish smile lit it up like a spot light. Our lives have all been made better as a result of your continuous love.

Who would have known, back in the fall of 1969, that our collective journey to Maine, and St. Francis College, could have produced the friendships that have endured all these years later.  I am blessed to have known you and I will miss you, your smile and your laugh.  We now have one less voice at the party Frankie and that's a shame.  Rest easy my friend.  

Candle lit by  Barbara Joyce Harmon  on August 30th, 2016

When I was young you were one of the older cousins that were always so cool and got to do everything.  Then we all got older and I found a great guy with a big heart, a beautiful smile and a loving hug.  Heartfelt sympathies to Conor, Rich, Paul and Brian.
Cousins forever, you will be missed.

Candle lit by  Conor Dennehy  on August 30th, 2016

How can I possibly put into words all of the ways that he'll be missed? He taught me so much about life, relationships and friendship. I'd give anything for him to be able to hold his granddaughter. I'm always going to love and miss him. I'll think of him every time I turn on a Patriots game or crack a beer. Miss you Dad.

My heartfelt condolences to all of Kevin's family. A great guy with a huge smile who had such a great love for his family. May he rest in peace and God bless you all!

Frankie,  It was so great talking with you earlier this month. You have not changed since St. Francis College. I will always remember you, not only for the sincere friendship you held in your heart, but for the small things that were YOU - your contagious laugh (yuk-yuk), your Boston accent, your love of Boxer dogs, your insisting that “math is easy”, but mostly your love of life. RIP.

We knew Kevin through Paul and Cathy, but he was the kind of man - not unlike many other Irishmen - who'd never met a stranger.  His easy manner and great smile made us feel like family.  The world is diminished by his passing, and has left a huge hole in his family..  Kevin's passing strengthens our commitment to fight cancer that has taken too many from us..

Candle lit by  Ruth Walsh  on August 31st, 2016

Was very sorry to hear of Kevin's passing. I am glad lots of us saw each other at the Walsh reunion a few years back. Seeing the Dennehy's brought back such good memories of my wonderful godfather Uncle Frankie. Kevin reminded me of him. My sympathies to all of the Dennehy and Joyce families.

Kevin, you were the Best, always greeting everyone with that infectious smile and a huge hug. Your genuine love of family and friends will be remembered always. Brave till the end. Rest in peace my cousin. Love you forever and ever. My deepest sympathy to Conor and Danielle, Richie, Paul and Brian.

Candle lit by  Pam Sheen  on August 31st, 2016

I was so sorry to hear about the death of your brother, and Conor, your dad. May fond memories of Kevin bring you comfort during this difficult time in your lives. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before he passed away. My heart and prayers go out to you. You are so blessed as a family to have each other.   Pam

We are thinking of our dear friends Paul and Cath, and all of Kevin's family and friends who will so surely miss him.  Kevin's million-dollar smile is unforgettable, and we feel honored to have known him even in the small ways we did.  Wishing much love and peace of heart to all who loved him.
Bob and Kathy Ravinski

There is an empty place in our hearts and family, which can never be filled. Heart felt sorrows to Connor, Danielle, Richie, Paul, and Brian. As kevin used to say "love you baby".  Will miss you always, your cousin Christine.

Candle lit by  Eileen Brady  on September 4th, 2016

Kevin, We had the happiest times together growing up. I will always cherish those memories. I'll carry your happiness and love with me always. My deepest sympathy to Conor, Rich, Paul, Brian and families.
Lovingly remembered always, Eileen and family.
