Colleen McQuillen  CHICAGO, IL

I have set up this page in response to the generous and loving inquiries I have had about how the friends and family of my father can honor his memory and express their sympathy. Kevin found his talent as a master woodworker late in life and took great pride in his miniature wood carvings. To recognize his appreciation for fine craftsmanship I am having a wooden bench custom made with his named carved in it. Pending approval of the MA Dept. of Conservation and Recreation, this bench will sit atop Mt. Sugarloaf State Reservation in Sunderland, MA and will overlook the beautiful Connecticut River Valley that he so loved.


Kevin passed away on September 15, 2012 only six weeks after we learned that he had cancer.

Colleen your mom is a very good friend of mine-we worked together at WSU and I am devasted at your loss of your dad. My dad was a carver-mostly of birds-and built beautiful Early American furniture. Will donate tomorrow. Diane

I am a bunny, and they gave me a bad time about getting a credit card. So I got a human co-signer. And I have a big credit limit if you want it!
