Kevin Neilley, Jr.

July 6, 1972 ~ May 19, 2021 (age 48)

Obituary

One thing we all have in common is our fondness of Kevin who left us before we were ready to let him go.

Kevin Neilley, Jr. was born July 6, 1972  in Kalamazoo, Michigan to Kevin Neilley, Sr. and Bonita Johnson Crowe. Kevin relocated to Easton, PA  when he was 7 years old with his mother and step father, Lorenzo Crowe. His earthly presence left us Wednesday May 19, 2021. 

He was a 91' Easton Area High School graduate and was a member of the Football and Track team where he was a star athlete.

He went on to pursue a higher education at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan and worked as a self employed Contractor.

There are not enough words in the dictionary to define Kevin. He was charismatic, handsome, thoughtful, loving, kind, considerate and had a blinding bright smile we all loved.

Kevin had a love for music and a soulful spirit to go along with his gregarious personality and kind heart. All who knew him loved him.

Kevin was a lifetime member of the Easton branch NAACP. He was an avid fan of Philadelphia sports teams, especially the Eagles and the 76ers.

Kevin embraced his Native American heritage and was a member of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians. He was baptized and a member of Greensky Hill Indian United Methodist Church in Charevoix, Michigan. His life will also be celebrated there as his final resting place. He loved spending time with his family as they enjoyed boating at Torch Lake Michigan.

Kevin leaves behind his adoring mother Bonita Crowe, father, Kevin Neilley, Sr., and his beloved son Chance Kevin Neilley. He also leaves behind his loving Aunt Doreen Wilson, Lela Harrison, close cousins, soulmate Jennifer Harris, family and friends.
