Obituary: Kevin J. Kearney

Mr. Kearney

Mr. Kearney

Kevin J. Kearney of Prescott, Arizona, passed away in his home surrounded by family on Dec. 13, 2016, at the age of 64.

Captain of the Crown King Fire Department, he fought wildland fires until his retirement in 2009. Those who knew him best describe him as an extremely kind soul. He had a passion for antique cars, road trips and music, however, his avid pursuit of knowledge and political discourse defined him; he was an avid volunteer for the liberal cause. His greatest love was his daughters; first and foremost he was a dedicated, loyal father.

He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Doretta; and his daughters, Kellie Kearney, Beverly Kearney, and Bobbi Coccaro. He is also survived by three sisters and one brother. Kevin will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
