Kevin leaves behind his beloved wife Gail, son Joshua, daughter Hannah, mother Helen, sisters Karen, and Kelly (Sandro), and niece Kendra. Kevin was predeceased by his father Edward Kenneth Baglole.

Kevin worked for the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant LHIN as a Psychosocial Spiritual Bereavement Clinician.

Throughout his rostered ministry in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, Kevin served many local Lutheran and Anglican churches as their pastor, interim pastor, or supply pastor. Kevin was a proud member of St. Andrew’s Lodge #593, and eagerly participated in their benevolence work.

One of the great passions of Kevin’s life was the time he spent with Special Olympics Grimsby-Lincoln.

Kevin’s family wishes to express profound thanks to the care provided by Dr. Dhesy-Thind, the staff at Juravinski Cancer Centre, the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice, and Kevin’s co-workers at the LHIN.
