The Hayden and Declan Hanlon Fund

On Friday, August 25, 2017 the world lost a shining star. Kevin Creran Hanlon passed peacefully, surrounded by his family at Moristown Memorial Hospital. He was just 47 years old. His love and devotion to his family were insurmountable. 

Kevin was one of 5, born and raised in East Hanover, NJ, Kevin attended Delbarton and Bayley-Ellard High School '87 and Arizona State, '93.  He married the love of his life on the beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, surrounded by his closest family and friends. He resided in Morristown with his loving wife of 11 years and their two beautiful children.  

Kevin loved spending time with his precious family, appreciated the simple life and was always the life of the party. He spent much of his summers with his wife enjoying the sun and laughter of his children on the beaches in Lewes, DE.  He loved the Yankees, the Giants, music, watching the sunset, listening to the cicadas sing at night and had the best sense of humor there was. Kevin was proud of his career as a bond broker and cherished the relationships he formed with his co-workers and clients over the years.

Kevin battled cancer with strength, courage and grace. He never complained about his own plight and continued to live his life, enjoyed simple pleasures, go to work and be an amazing father all while receiving his treatment. 

Known to many as "the Rocker", Kevin brightened days, brought smiles and laughter to any room, and left a lasting impression on everyone that ever met him. He will be missed every minute of every day.

Kevin leaves behind his beloved wife and soulmate, Gwen, daughter Hayden, 9 and son Declan, 6 of Morristown. 

This fund has been established to ensure the needs of Kevin's two beautiful children, Hayden and Declan, are met and that they have the opportunity to thrive as their daddy watches over them from above. 

Each donation is a true gift and will never be forgotten. A portion of this fund will be donated to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
