CHISHOLM, Kevin Joseph - Uxbridge, Ontario (formerly of Markham and Toronto, Ontario).
It is with profound sadness that we share the news of the death of our beloved Kevin.
Kevin passed away peacefully with family by his side on August 3rd, 2020 at Providence Healthcare, Toronto.
Born in Heatherton, Antigonish County on January 16, 1947, Kevin was the son of Mary and A.W. (Bill) Chisholm (deceased). He is survived by his devoted wife Helen (nee Whitley) of 48 years and his children Caroline, Jeff (Tiffany), Todd (Brigid), and Leanne (Matthew), and his much loved grandchildren, Sarah, Alex, Kieran, Grady Bennet, Marin, Maggie, Claire, Eleanor and Cecelia.
Kevin was the second eldest of ten children and is survived by Bob (Andrea), Jack (Debbie), Fr. Greg, Jerome (Carol), Paul (Ann Marie), Bernie (Debby), Mary (Peter), Jimmy and Janet (John), beloved Aunt Almira MacPherson and a multitude of treasured nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was a long-time member of the Knights of Columbus, rising to the ranks of the fourth degree. Music was part of Kevin’s DNA. He sang in church choirs throughout his life.
Kevin’s greatest source of pride, however, was his family. He revelled in his children’s accomplishments and doted on each of his ten grandchildren, who loved to see their Grandpa (with his silly “duck-talk”) walk through the door.
Kevin’s own mother died when he was only 9 years of age.
As the second eldest of ten, Kevin took on significant responsibilities early in life, becoming a pillar of his family and community. Through he faced his share of challenges, he never wavered in his faith, which guided and supported him throughout his life. He will be missed for his smile, his laugher, his voice, his jokes, and his kind heart.
May he rest in peace; he touched so many and we were all so blessed to have him in our lives.
