He was a graduate of Alvirne High School Class of 1976 and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Keene State College in 1981. Kevin has spent most of his working career with the Union Leader in Manchester, recently as the Single Copy Manager.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Kevin’s passion was theater. He served as President of the Nashua Theater Guild and with that company and many others, in any and all capacities, from producer to actor to director for over thirty years. He carried NTG on his back in recent years, helping to keep them going when they were on the brink. His theater career included several honors achieved at local and regional AACT Drama Festivals, including his direction of “Dinner with Friends” and “Love Letters.” Nashua residents of all walks of life have enjoyed Kevin’s acting in and direction of “Shakespeare in the Park” on warm summer days at Greeley Park in Nashua, more than fifteen times. His love of the craft theater was well-known and there are few theater’s artists in the entire state that have not been touched by Kevin’s work. He was constantly on-the-go, from one show to the next, and was a beloved member of the New Hampshire theater family. Just this month, he worked the concession table for a production of “Kiss Me, Kate.” No job was beneath him and he would find a way to pitch in. Kevin was for so many, the “go to” guy. His easily recognized laugh could be heard in the audience of many productions that he attended where he probably knew someone in the cast or crew. One favorite story was walking backstage to offer a “break a leg” to the cast before a show, only to find himself thrust into a part when an actor couldn’t make it to the theater. There are dozens, perhaps hundreds of friends whose love of theater intersected with Kevin in some way over his long career. His savant-like ability to tell you the name of nearly any Oscar winner made for great conversation at cast parties.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Perhaps Kevin’s most enduring legacy will be New Hampshire Theater Awards, an organization honoring theater companies throughout the state, a now thirteen year old legacy. Kevin was the recipient of the NHTA’s unique “Vision and Tenacity” Award in 2005, honoring his passion in helping to build his organization. The NHTA will remember his life at their annual show on January 31st 2015 at the Stockbridge Theater at Pinkerton Academy in Derry. Friends with pictures or video of Kevin in his theater life are asked to contact the NHTA by email at Memoriam@NHTheater Awards.org. Kevin was also active in politics as a Democrat and worked a term as Supervisor of the checklist in Hudson from 1996-2004.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Members of his family include his loving mother, Delores Anne Arnold of Hudson; a brother, William Riley and his wife Cathy of Hudson; three sisters, Kerry Olson and her husband Tim of Colorado, Laurie Bellman of Maine and Sharron Marston McLean of Hudson; an uncle Chester Hurd and wife Joyce; an aunt Phyllis Lackie all of Hudson; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and his extensive Theater family.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText"> Calling hours will be held at the FARWELL FUNERAL HOME, 18 Lock Street, Nashua on Sunday afternoon from 3 to 6 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in St. John XIII Parish at St. John The Evangelist Church, 27 Library Street in Hudson, Monday morning at 10:30 a.m. Interment will take place in Hills Farms Cemetery.
