Kevin William Palmer

April 25th 1967 – Feb 14th, 2023

With deep sadness, we announce the sudden passing of Kevin.

 Live Hard! Play Hard! Love hard!

To know Kevin “Icabod” was to love him.  Growing up, as a country boy in Petersfield his love of hunting, trapping, fishing and being with family meant everything to him.  He loved physical work and being outdoors that included many long hours helping his parents and grandparents on the farm. He could learn to do just about anything he set his mind to.  All who knew him recognized he worked hard and played harder. Throughout his life, his mom was always there to support him unconditionally.

Kevin loved the outdoors, fast cars and living life to the fullest. Always smiling and making us laugh, his outgoing personality made it so easy to be around him as he shared all his crazy stories with us.  One thing we know for sure, each one of us will remember that infectious laugh that made us laugh right alongside him. His generous spirit made sure his family, friends and others around him were taken care of before himself.  We will miss you dear son, father, partner, brother, uncle and friend.

Mourning Kevin’s sudden passing is his long-time partner Giselle and their kids, James, Trinity, Cyrus, Darian and Annie. Parents, Joan (Joe), Ron, Siblings; Dennis (Marilyn), Rhonda (Darcy), Colleen (Mike) and his many nieces and nephews.

Look out Dear Lord, here comes Kevin! 

In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can go to the Manitoba Addictions Foundation.

    Kevin and I were friends for quite a few years, he was also my roommate for a short time in Winnipeg. I met him when he worked at Norwin Roofing.
    My heartfelt condolences to his family and dear friends..our loss is great.
    A beautiful light has stopped shining and our world is a better place for having Kevin in it.
    The last time I saw Kevin was a few months ago.
    I was standing in line at a bank. While talking to the cashier I heard this man talking. I thought to myself, that sound like Kevin!! It was my luck to see him, he looked healthy and happy….I will miss you, and the next Caesar is on me, cheers bud!

    “Look out Dear Lord, Here comes Kevin” No truer words spoken. Kevin use to come see us in North Van and the Okanagan and brought that amazing smile and infectious laugh with him. I can see you and Dougie now (give him a hug for me) hanging with the Angels and raising hell …RIP buddy, you were an amazing human and we were all better for knowing you. RIP Ichabod…

    I remember Kevin from his time in North Vancouver. We were quite close for a number of years. He always had a wildly happy look in his eyes. More than anything, I miss his laugh.

    I left a comment, about an hour ago, and it disappeared. I hope this will work.

    I remember Kevin from his time living in North Vancouver. We were good friends. Kevin was always smiling and laughing. It was infectious. We had a lot of great adventures, including the two of us living in the woods, on the Sunshine Coast.

    I have already been missing him, for years, but now I’ll miss him much more.
