CAMDEN — It saddens us to announce that Kevin McConnell has left this earth to be with his mom July 20, 2022. Born in Portland Feb. 28, 1961, he was the son of Kathleen and Edwin McConnell and grew up in the Millville area of Camden. Following his graduation from Camden-Rockport High School in 1979, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy with no tattoos, where he served for six years, delivering secret messages to his Captains.

A hard worker all of his life, he delivered newspapers and raked blueberries as a young boy. At the time of his death, he had been employed 15 years at Hamilton Marine as director of wholesale. Before that, he worked at Lewis Marine and Manset Marine in Rockland. Kevin was also serving on the board of Maine Marine Trade Association.

A kind, thoughtful, dependable, honest, and attentive person, Kevin was a great dancer and dresser. He excelled in everything he did. His hobbies included playing Frisbee with Glen, shooting pool, darts, ping pong, and listening to rock and roll music. He was a big history buff and loved being close to the ocean.
For the past five years, Kevin has been a devoted surrogate grandfather to his partner’s granddaughter, Kirah.

Kevin was predeceased by his mother, Kathleen McConnell, sisters, Mary and Anita, and brother, James.
Surviving is his partner of 19 years, Lisa Leeman and her children, Jess, Jen, Rick, dogs, Max and Bo, granddaughter, Kirah; brothers, Patrick (Kathy) McConnell and their children; sister, Elaine Feener and her husband, Frank; a sister-in-law, Teresa McConnell; many nieces and nephews.

Kevin will be missed by his family and many friends.
