Kevin Thomas Conlon, loving son, brother, partner, and friend, passed away on March 29, 2023 at the age of 37 from an untimely tragic accident in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Kevin was born on January 13, 1986 in Murray, Utah to Robert W. Conlon and Josie Van Seters Conlon.
After graduating from high school in Newbury Park, California, Kevin furthered his education and received his Associate of Arts degree from Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo, California.
Out of a love of creation and passion for all things delicious, he moved to San Francisco where he pursued his fondness of the culinary arts and worked at two fine dining restaurants as a sous-chef.
Kevin joined the carpenters union in pursuit of becoming a journeyman. During this apprenticeship he was able to instruct and share his talent with his fellow students. His skills were such that not only was he couched with training other apprentices but also the management of a team of journeyman. Kevin prided himself in being an excellent craftsman as a finish carpenter. With this expertise he co-founded C4 Construction in the San Francisco Bay area where he was fortunate to work alongside great friends.
Kevin’s selfless nature had a tendency to collect those lucky enough to come in contact with him. He was a precious and compassionate soul that made only one type of friend, life long; of which he had many.
He bonded with people rapidly due to his authentically infectious smile and gregarious personality. To know Kevin was most certainly to love him. Because his heart was so big it could not fit completely in his chest so he had no choice but to wear it on his sleeve.
Some of our favorite things about Kevin are his larger than life personality, unassuming whimsical demeanor, comforting familiar voice, crazy antics, bike and skateboarding tricks, humor, fun hair color, he always remembered your birthday, and generosity (on countless occasions he gave the coat off his back or the new shoes off his feet to someone in need). We will certainly fondly remember his approach to tattoo planning, which can best be described as “with reckless abandon”.
Kevin loved big. He loved his family and was loved very much by his family. Kevin was a good son, an excellent friend, and a great man. He was especially proud of the opportunity to be a father and care for Beckett, who was like a son to him. Losing Kevin will forever leave a hole in all of our hearts. He will be missed greatly.
Kevin is survived by his father Robert W. Conlon, his older brothers, Brandon Carlson (Shannon) and Collin Carlson, his sister, Erin Conlon (Elliot Taxman), twin brother, Casey Conlon, life long partner, Breanne Nomelli, and maternal step grandmother, Joanie Van Seters. He is also survived by nephew, Christopher (Erika) Carlson, and nieces, Madison (David) Magallanes, Meghan Carlson, Josie Carlson, Maverick Carlson, and Saylah Taxman. He is preceded in death by his mother, Josie Van Seters Conlon, and paternal grandparents, Robert “Jocko” Conlon and Dorothy Canny Conlon, and maternal grandfather, Joseph Van Seters, and maternal grandmother, Winifred Van Seters.
