    I had the pleasure of working with the one and only Clancy at Reunion Resort in Kissimmee.
    Kevin was a mentor and friend to me. His humor, compassion, dedication and Baastan accent have been missed around here since he left the middle of last year.

    “Love is stronger than death even though it can’t stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can’t separate people from love. It can’t take away our memories either. In the end, love is stronger than death.”

    Kevin was a very warm soul that lit up the room everytime he entered it. We have missed him since the day he left; however as he always has, continues to be in our hearts forever.

    May God bless your family, your friends and give them the strength they need right now to accept your peace.

    With love,

    I too worked with Kevin at the Ginn Company and spent a lot of time with him. It was always a pleasure and fun working with him. He brought a smile to everyone around him. It really came as a shock to me. I would like to give my regards to the parents of Kevin Clancy, who raised a human being that cared about other human beings. It’s so rare these days.

    God Bless his children,
