March 20, 1969 - September 29, 2023

In loving memory ~

It is with great sadness we announce that Kevin, beloved son of Margaret Growcott of Port Alberni and brother, Julian, of Nanaimo, passed away suddenly.

Kevin was predeceased by his father, Robert Growcott. Kevin was much loved by his friends in Canada and many relatives in his native England.

Born in London, England, Kevin emigrated with his family at age 7 to Canada in 1976.

He had a love of music, inherited from his father, a professional violinist, and was an accomplished flute player. Although trained as a Sound Engineer at Columbia Academy in Vancouver, his adventurous spirit led him to Vancouver Island as he loved hiking, mountain biking and off-road explorations in his truck or jeep.

Kevin will always be remembered for his extreme generosity and his unfailing kindness to others. Although he was never married or had any children, he was essentially a 'family' man, choosing to spend his leisure time with his mother in Port Alberni and brother in Nanaimo. He thought the world of his nephew, Logan and spent as much time as he could with him, building models and remote-controlled cars.

There will be no service, by request, but condolences can be sent to the Chapel of Memories online.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
