Dear Pauline & family, I was so saddened to hear of Kevin’s passing. I saw it in St Mary’s bulletin. Kevin was a wonderful friend & helped me so much with Ginger when I need it most! I will never forget his kindness. 💜 God bless Kevin, You & your family. Maria ( Gingers Mom) 💖
To Kevin's wife and family, please accept my condolences. Kevin was one of my college roommates for multiple years at college. Also, we both worked at the college radio station. Kevin and I shared many of the same friends during college. We had a good time, and had LOTS of laughs together. I moved to Texas after graduation some 40+ years ago. But I never forgot my buddy, Kevin. You will be sorely missed pal !
Dear Phyllis and family, Kitty and I are so sorry to hear about Kevin. We will keep him and your family in our prayers.
Please accept our deepest sympathy at the loss of Kevin. May he rest in peace. The Scerbo family will keep him in our prayers.
Dear Pauline & Family:
I am so sorry to hear about Kevin's illness and passing. I first met Kevin in my Creative Writing class at GSC during the spring of 1980. Because I grew up in Middletown, we were both familiar with Monmouth County landmarks and the nightlife in Long Branch, Asbury Pk. etc.
Later that year, Kevin and a whole cast of thousands from WGLS, the campus radio station, brought Project Santa 1980 to the airwaves and raised funds for area needy families. I consider myself lucky to have served with Kevin on that memorable, charitable endeavor.
Some years later, Kevin worked with my stepfather, John Callahan, at Fort Monmouth. John passed away from prostate cancer on April 11, 2019. After I posted news of his passing on FB, Kevin wrote a post indicating that you and he had taken ballroom dance lessons at the Fort with John and my mother, Pat. Small world!
More recently, my mom passed away on July 17, 2022 from complications of a stroke. However, Kevin had the same birthday as my mother, January 25. It's really hard to grasp that all three of them are gone.
I share in your grief and only hope that these memories and coincidences can provide some sense of comfort. Kevin was an excellent DJ, classmate, co-worker, and knew how to put people at ease. It's a cliche, but his smile and outgoing demeanor really did lighten up a room.
You and your whole family remain in my prayers.
Sue (SusanMarie) Morgan, GSC Class of '82

by Christina Rossetti
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

The Cieri Family is one in a million. Every memory I have includes countless smiles, belly laughs, and unconditional kindness. Kevin was a gem of a human. My deepest condolences to Pauline, Anne Marie, and Christian at this time.
My deepest condolences to the Cieri family. I've been blessed to know Kevin since our college days. A kindred soul, a fine man, a good friend, a wonderful family man. I'll miss you but most of all, I will miss your laugh. It always made me feel good.

I was deeply saddened to hear that Kevin had succumbed and passed away. He was like an older brother to me and a long time friend. I cherish the memories I have had with him over the years such as family home on Forest Street and as a co-worker at Fort Monmouth.
A gentle soul and a gentle man.
My G-d keep you Kevin in his graces.
I am really sorry to hear this sad news. I was working with Kevin in VA @ Eatontown, NJ and had FAC PPM training together. What a nice person he was. Very friendly and helpful and good mentor. I pray almighty to provide strength and overcome this tragedy. I am very sadden. I didn't know that he was retired from VA. I am sadden to hear this news.
We will really miss Kevin. He was always available to help everyone and was so kind and thoughtful. Our deepest condolences to Kevin's family.
I’m really going to miss you brother. You were the best.
I want to express my deepest sympathy and condolences to the Cieri family during such a very difficult time. I worked with Kevin (KC) at the VA for several years until his retirement this year. Kevin was the best people manager that I have had the opportunity to work with. He was very humble, passionate, empathic, available, and personable. His smile and laughter will truly be missed. May his soul rest in peace with his angels. May God bless and comfort his family and friends.
So sorry to hear of Kevin's passing. We went to St Jerome's school together and were in The Boy Scout also. I am sure he will be missed by many. My condolences to the family.
My deepest sympathy for the Cieri family during this difficult time. Wishing all of you peace and comfort. Sending prayers, and lots of love. Kevin will always be in our hearts, a very special man.
Kevin truly was a kind and friendly guy, one of the best. I always enjoyed running into Kevin and Pauline at Jacks. I also loved reading his riddle of the day on facebook, it always made me laugh. My condolences to Pauline and the family during this difficult time. Sending love, hugs, and prayers xo
Would like to pass my condolences to the Cieri family. I was a member of Kevin's team and truly enjoyed working for him.
Thinking of your family and sending my deepest condolences.
My condolences to the Cieri family.
I’ve known Kevin since college and he was a great guy who will be missed.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
