GOKEY, KEVIN RAY, 42, of Roxbury, passed away April 5 at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, after a life-long battle with cancer. Born on May 15, 1972 in Claremont, N.H., Kevin was the second youngest child of predeceased Sylvia Abbot of Windsor. Kevin is survived by his brother Bill Gokey and his fiancée Heather McAlister of Ascutney, his sister Sheri Hook of North Walpole, N.H., and his sister April Hook of Springfield. Kevin attended Springfield High School and moved to the Bradford area in his late teens. In 2004, Kevin moved to Roxbury to live with Chris and Faith Henderson and their children. Eventually, Kevin moved into an apartment which was supported closely by Chris, Faith, and friends, Shawn Morby and Seth Corbett. Kevin was employed with Sodexo Operations LLC, at Norwich University until this summer when his illness prevented him from continuing. Kevin was part of both the Roxbury and Bradford communities. He was known by many in both towns though he referred to Roxbury as his home. He worked with Upper Valley Services Inc. (UVS), out of both the Bradford and Moretown offices and was a cherished part of the UVS family. His courage, kind heart, and sense of humor were an inspiration to everyone. Kevin liked to pan for gold, spend time with his cat Oreo, listen to music, draw and laugh. His artwork hangs in the UVS Moretown office. He will be dearly missed and remembered often.
