Raised by 175 people in 44 months

Kevin Michael Grover, a beloved husband, father, brother, son, teacher and friend, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, November 22, 2012 at the age of 40.  Kevin had taught for 15 years, the last 10 at Falmouth elementary as a second grade teacher, and was the 2010 Maine Teacher of the Year.  He leaves behind his loving wife Rebecca and two children, Lillian, 11, and son Elias, 8. 

 

In order to help the family, the Grover Family Fund has been established.  All donations made through this site will be contributed to this fund. Donations to the Grover Family Fund can also be made at any TD Bank branch location. Please help to support Rebecca, Lily and Eli as they contend with the difficulties of their great loss. 


 "There are no words to describe the depth of emotion and pain that we are now forced to endure.

 

Kevin Grover was the best husband, father and friend anyone could ever hope to have. His love of life, his boundless patience, his generosity, his sense of humor, his capacity for love all made him extraordinary.

 

Ours was a charmed life - we knew it, we loved each other deeply and we knew just how lucky we were.

 

I now must turn to my family, friends and community to help Lily, Eli and me. Not just today, but next week, next year and in the years ahead. I am so grateful for the outpouring of love, affection and well-wishes. Please keep it coming - we need it."

 

- Rebecca Grover,  November 25, 2012

"Thank you" does not seem to express enough my appreciation for all the donations to this site. I appreciate each and every one from those I know and hold near and dear to those people who knew Kevin to those people who just felt compelled to give, you have all helped.
Lily, Eli and I continue to try to just get through the days as best we can. We face a long road ahead, but with support from so many I know we will make it.
Again, thank you.

I had the pleasure of serving as a classroom volunteer when Oscar was in Kevin's second grade class. I have never seen such a positive, respectful and productive relationship between a teacher and his students. We are so grateful that Oscar had this experience, even as we are so deeply saddened at the Grover family's loss -- and that of the entire community. Kevin will live on in the lives of his students. We can only hope that many of them will be inspired to follow his amazing example of what it means to be a kind, dedicated, smart and loving teacher.
