CLEARY, Kevin John
Monday, May 12, 2003     The Halifax Herald Limited
CLEARY, Kevin John - 69
, Halifax, died peacefully at home May 10, 2003, surrounded by his family after a courageous and dignified battle with cancer. Born August 28, 1933, in Bishop's Falls, NL, he was a son of Thomas and Anne Cleary. He came to Halifax in 1951 to attend Saint Mary's University, where he earned a B.A. (1956), B.Ed (1957) and an M.A. (1961), after teaching school in Grand Falls, NL. A true Santamarian, Kevin devoted over 50 years to the university and surrounding community, holding positions including Registrar and Secretary to the Senate, retiring in 1999. He was a member of the University's Board of Governors. In October 2002, he was awarded the University Alumni Association's Distinguished Community Service Award. Although he made Halifax his home for over 50 years, he was in heart and soul a Newfoundlander and the son of a hard working railway superintendent. He was an avid railroad collector and could often be found working on his latest line or connection. The love of his home province was abundantly evident in the stories and memories he shared, his modest and steady manner, and most especially in his expressive turn of phrase. He was a loving husband, devoted father, doting grandfather and a steadfast and true friend.

Kevin's wisdom, laughter and loyal heart will be sadly missed by a large and loving clan, including his beloved wife, June; his children, Stephanie (Padraic McCombe), Medicine Hat; Kevin (Judith), Halifax; Cynthia, Calgary; Carolyn (John Meagher), Halifax; Thomas (Rona), Halifax; stepchildren, Peter Dauphinee (Sharon), Barrie, Ont.; Anne (Jason Scott), Aurora, Ont.; his most adored grandchildren, James, Callum, Benjamin, Anais and Morgan.
