Kevin O’Brien was born on September 9, 1958 in Boston, Massachusetts to the parents of Frank and Dorothy O’Brien. He passed away on November 5, 2020 after over an eleven year battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
After graduating from Crestwood High School in Dunwoody, GA, Kevin attended the University of Georgia where he played football for three of the four years. He graduated in 1980 with a business degree in finance. Kevin met his wife, Linda Lucia in 1979 at UGA. They were married in August of 1982 and moved to Texas after their honeymoon. At the time, Kevin was working for Watkins Motor Lines. Later he transferred to Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1990 son Kiernan Logan was born followed by the year 1993 when Casey Laine was born. Eventually the family landed back in Georgia. By then Kevin was working for Coca Cola, following his father’s footsteps which was a source of pride for the O’Brien clan.
Kevin was a wonderful man, a faithful husband, the kindest father, the finest brother, and a loyal friend to all who had the privilege to know him. He was a man of faith who was actively involved in his Catholic church as a lector.
Kevin is survived by his loving wife Linda Lucia O’Brien, his sons, Kiernan Logan O’Brien and Casey Laine O’Brien, his brother Robert O’Brien and wife Joyce O’Brien, his sister, Tricia O’Brien, his younger brother Bill O’Brien and wife Ellen O’Brien, numerous nieces and nephews. He proceeded in death by his brother Ricky O’Brien and his sister Barbara O’Brien along with both parents.

  6. Kevin was my big brother in the fraternity at UGA. He was absolutely the best anyone could ask for. He was a big brother in every sense. I was so sad to hear about his passing today.

  7. Linda,

    I remember when Kevin came into your life at UGA and how much you loved him from the very beginning. You were wonderful as individuals, as a couple and as parents. He was a wonderful man.

  8. CandleImageMy favorite memory of my Uncle Kevin was going to his parents house and eating ice cream and the orange Corvette he owned which I thought was sooooo cool at the age of 10. I also remember visiting them in Denton, Texas and remember swinging on the front porch swing and before I knew it we were on the ground as it broke the hooks from the porch roof. That was quite a laugh we all shared!

    I will always have fond memories of my Uncle Kevin as he was a kind soul and I know he is at peace is heaven where he belongs after his long and painful battle.

  9. So sorry for your loss. Kevin will be missed
    by everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are
    with your family.
