    Andrew, though your father may be gone, his presence will forever remain in your heart. Always remember the times you shared and cherish the memories. Your father will always look down upon you and guide your path with a warm ray of light. I am truly sorry for your loss. Andrew, Mama D and Matt I love you all. God Bless.

  2. Janet Stewart on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Andrew, your Dad loved you very much. He will always be watching over you and will remain forever in your heart. ‘Some people come into our lives and quickly go; some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same.’ May God bless you all and give you his peace and comfort. Andrew, Matt and Laurie, I love you all.

    As Andrew’s grandparents, we are deeply saddened at Kevin’s passing. While he has his mother, grandparents and brother to lean on, they cannot not replace his dad whom he loved. May God bless you you and keep you Kevin. You will not be forgotten.

  4. Laurie Dietrich on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    As his son Andrew and I went through photo albums tonight we remember good times and great moments. I hope Kevin is more at peace now and he knows how much his son will miss him.

    Don’t know if you remember me but I lived on Everclay Dr. and knew the Dietrich family. Kevin and his family lived on Whitman Rd. I am so sorry to hear of Kevin’s passing. God bless and my sympathies to his family. Terry Knapp

    I also had the great privledge to work with Kevin. I will always remember him as a kind hearted & warm individual. He could also be counted on for a number of good laughs. What a great legacy you’ve left. I’m just sorry it was way too soon. Rest in peace, my friend.

    I golfed with Kevin in the Wild Bunch Golf Tourney every year for many years. I have wonderful memories and it saddens me to see that he has past on.

    I haven’t seen Kevin in over 35 years but he was someone I always remembered. When I think of him it is his smile and sense of humor that has always stayed with me. I wish all of your family many blessings, peace and comfort. Take good care. Patty

    I knew Kevin in school. Funny guy! God bless you and give you only good memories of his 50 years!

  11. Keith Baldwin on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    I worked side by side with Kevin for many years and always enjoyed his great sense of humor and his attitude about life. He never gave up and thought there was always a way to do most anything. Kevin you will be missed.

  12. Richard F. Brook on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    I worked with Kevin, played Softball with him, and even shared an interest in the same Model Airplane hobby. I always enjoyed his sense of humor and friendliness. He will be missed.

  13. Carol Hickey on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    I worked with Laurie at EK & remember the stories she told of Kevin & the boys. Good times & sad – she had nice words to say about the father of her son & wanted only the best for all. I didn’t know Kevin well however I know he’ll be greatly missed by his family & friends. May he rest in peace & look down on his loving family.

  14. Tom Gaisser on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    It has been many years since I worked with Kevin but I will always remember his positive outlook on work and life. He always had a joke and a laugh and brightened my day on many occasions. Kevin, you will be missed by all.

  15. Lynda Feinstein on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Kevin and I go back a long time – high school rivalry, bowling, camping, and just plain hanging out. Kevin introduced me to my husband, Brad and was the best man at our wedding. I will miss his smile and sense of humor. He could always make me laugh. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

  16. Linda Hohman on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Kevin could always make someone smile or laugh, he made work fun and enjoyable, you will be truely missed. My prayers and thought’s are with Kevin’s family.

  17. Bob & Sharon Beach on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Kevin was a great friend with a great sense of humor. We fondly remember his love of life and his way of looking at the bright side of things. He will always be a member of the WildBunch. We’re sorry that we will not be able to attend his wake or funeral service as we are leaving for vacation — but he will be in our hearts. Our deepest condolences go out to his family.

  18. Cristina (Feinstein) DiVita on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Kevin was a great person who knew how to make people laugh. Him and my father Brad shared many great times together and I wish him everlasting peace. My heart goes out to his dear family and friends; may you cherish all the wonderful memories.

  19. Phyllis Bryce Ely on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Many years after Greece Olympia I re-connected with Kevin and his family by way of daycare in Penfield. I can remember hearing a familiar laugh and voice, then seeing Kevin’s twinkly smile. It was a great surprise. We saw each other at parent events but lost track as our children grew up. I’m grateful to have had that experience and to have met Laurie, Andrew and Matt. Peace.

  20. Bill Stewart on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    My condolences for your loss. God bless.

  21. Caryn R. Feinstein on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Kevin’s family. This man was my father’s best friend and I know there are so many memories they shared together. As a little girl I followed my dad to many Wild Bunch baseball games and other activites and remember many of the funny things Kevin did and said. There was also the day of my dad’s wedding when Kevin let me take his new car for a spin, that was great. I am unable to attend the services but wanted to let Kevin’s family know I was thinking about him.

  22. Dave Buchanan on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    On behalf of his classmates at Greece Olympia Class of 1977, I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to family and friends of kevin’s passing.

I personal had the opportunity to spend some time with Kevin at our 30th reunion discussing his unfortunate battle with MS, this moment I’ll cherish. I know he will be truely missed amongst us fellow classmates. Dave Duchanan Reunion Committee Memeber

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you Andrew, Laurie and the Dietrich family. We will remember all the good times on the baseball field when Kevin coached the boys (my son Tim Leibenguth and Andrew). We are so sorry for your loss. We are thinking of you during this time of loss. May you rest in peace Kevin.

  24. MaryKay& Bob Knitter on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    The funniest thing, while honeymooning in Hawaii we were walking down the street, we heard someone yell out ‘Hey Knitter’, Bob and I looked at each other like ‘no, we didn’t just hear that’. We turned and looked back, yep, it was Kevin! Til this day we smile at the memory and will forever hold it… Our deepest sympathy to Kevin’s family

  25. Brian Curtis on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    The WildBunch will miss you.

  26. Brad A. Feinstein on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    To my best friend Kevin. I shall miss you. The adventures we went on will be fond rememberances. You helped me through some tough times and I will never forget that. We will meet up again sometime for some new adventures. Where ever you are I know you will have fun. They probably need some humor in heaven right now. Kev show the them way to smile and have a sense of humor. Your Friend Brad

  27. Jeff Gortatowsky on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Too many years have gone by. I wish I had known how and where to catch up. Thanks for the memories pal. Maybe we’ll meet someplace else, in another time, for another beer. Maybe this time, I’ll get the girls! See ya Kev.
