Kevin Holloran

Kevin passed away suddenly at his home on 6th January 2023 aged 54 years.

Born in North London, Kevin spent many of his summer holidays in Ireland visiting his fathers side of the family in Co. Mayo. Following his school years Kevin worked as a postman for Royal Mail before making the move to Cheshire with his parents where he spent time working as a hospital porter for many years. Following the loss of his father, Kevin spent more and more time with his mum, who he truly doted on, eventually becoming her full time carer. They shared many wonderful times together and between them they had the most amazing sense of humour sharing many laughs along the way. They enjoyed many trips to the theatre and could often be seen setting out to enjoy a day trip on the busses. Following a move to Clayton-le-Moors Kevin became a well loved character in the local community. Wherever he lived Kevin always kept his faith in the Lord and was a regular face at All Saints Church and Clayton Baptist Church.

Donations are being gratefully received in memory of Kevin on behalf of Clayton Baptist Church to help cover the cost of his funeral. To make a donation please send to Clayton Baptist Church, a donation box will also be available on the funeral day.

A Kentish Town Diamond was Kev he had his Credo, his own code of conduct, and could get along with anyone. He was a “Blinding Geezer”.”an” a Real Gent” .to use his own turn of phrase. He walked a rough path. With a certain style and no airs ‘n’ graces. And there’s a lot to be said for that kind of common Nobility, in being True to Yourself, Code, Creed + Rock n Roll on Brother.
