Obituary of Kevin John ROE

Our family would like to share the news of the recent passing of our son, brother, and uncle. Kevin was a bright, intelligent and creative person. He loved to write poetry; journal and play music. As a young boy, he played lacrosse and was a strong competitor. As he got older, he began to struggle with mental health and addiction issues. He stayed connected to his family, especially his mum Gillian through the ups and downs. He loved his monthly coffee visits and phone chats with her. As an adult, he was very proud of his work with “Our Place Society” and their Victoria Gardening program. He learned how to work in and care for a large community garden that fed local low income and homeless families. He was always hopeful that he could carve a healthier path and overcome his challenges. There are many people who supported and celebrated Kevin throughout his journey and we are so very grateful for the work of the VICOT Team; the ACT Team; Our Place Society; Douglas Street Supportive Housing; Vic PD and so many more. Kevin is survived by his mum Gillian; his brother Andrew (and family); and his sister Nicola (and family). In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to: Our Place Society 919 Pandora Ave, Victoria, BC V8V 3N4 Phone: (250) 388-7112
