“No Regrets! I did it all and I did it surrounded by love, from my bride of 52 years, Lynn, my incredible family, my friends, my employees and my customers. I am blessed. I love you all.” ---Kevin J. Philpott
Kevin was a character in every sense of the word. He vowed to not live a boring life and he certainly didn’t. He lived every day with joy and with passion for any task he took on.
Kevin’s life began in Newfoundland. As a teenager he ventured to the mainland looking for adventure and opportunity. He found it in Toronto, in both radio and a well-known chicken franchise.
At the age of 21, he married the love of his life, Lynn and together they began both a personal adventure of building a family and a professional journey of building a transportation and warehousing company. Kevin never retired as his love of people kept him energetic; Kevin would tell you that he was in the “People Business.” He will be most remembered for his ability to speak to you and make you feel like there is nowhere else he’d rather be. For Kevin, it wasn’t a rare talent, it was just who he was.
The final score of this game against cancer in no way reflects the offence or defense played by Kevin. He really should be awarded all 3- Stars of the game. Kevin leaves behind a wife, Lynn, children Mark and Narda (Matt) and three energetic grandchildren: Gordie, Isla and Ian. Kevin also leaves behind brothers and sisters in Newfoundland, close and wonderful friends, employees and customers.
Please share a condolence online for the family.

Kevin was one of the most generous people I ever had the privilege to know.
He gave in many ways but especially of his heart. He assisted and supported countless people.
He looked outside of the box and had the courage to go after and make his dreams come true.
He was playful and warm and welcoming.
He set a wonderful example for all of the people who were fortunate enough to have him in their life.
He will stay tucked in my heart and remembered with love.

Magic, the one word that comes to mind when I think about Uncle Kevin. The way he made everyone in the room feel was simply magic. He truly had a gift. The memories that we were privileged enough to share with Kevin will live on forever. Our hearts are heavy today, but there is comfort in knowing that his love for us all and our love for him is stronger than ever.
