Kevin O'Brien


Kevin James O’Brien, age 30, passed away in Philadelphia on Wednesday, June 22, 2022. He is preceded in death by his dad, Michael, Sr. who welcomed him home with open arms. He is survived by his loving mother Joyce(née Hoelsworth). Little brother to Michael(Cristin), Tom(Stephanie), and Sean(Katie); fun uncle to Riley, Maggie, Lucy, and Remy, and cherished by many other family and friends.

Kevin was the hilarious bright light in our family. He enjoyed going to the movies, road trips with friends, hanging out at Top Golf, and goofing around with his nieces. Kevin graduated from Penn State. He was a strong warrior whom battled numerous ailments and endured too many surgeries in his short life and rarely complained. If you were lucky enough to know him, you loved him. He was very accepting and loving soul, and could make anyone feel at ease in conversation. In just about any setting you would see him sitting down, relaxing and taking it all in, not taking one minute for granted. 

Relatives and friends are invited to visitation on Thursday June 30, 2022 from 9 - 11am at the Galzerano Funeral Home 9304 Old Bustleton Ave. Phila. PA 19115. Funeral services will begin at 11am. Interment will be held privately.
