Kevin Burns Pasley beloved husband, father, and WW2 veteran entered into eternal life on June 4, 2020. Born March 18, 1924 he was the youngest of eight children to Robert and Margaret Pasley of Maplewood NJ. His childhood summers were spent in the family’s cottage on Lake Champlain in Vermont. He enjoyed telling stories of those years that tended to focus on fishing with his father whom he sadly lost at the age of 15.
He entered adulthood as WW2 dawned and he answered the nation’s call to serve by enlisting in the Army and he was employed as a bombardier on a B24 over Japan. He served along with his four brothers Robert, Richard, William and Frank all of whom returned safely after service. Upon honorable discharge from military service he returned to the College of the Holy Cross graduating in 1949. After attending Georgetown Dental School he practiced in New Jersey until accepting a position with the Lee County Dept. of Public Health in Ft. Myers, Florida retiring after 18 years of service as their dentist.
He adored his wife Ann who pre-deceased him by three years. They shared a love of golf and time together. In addition to golf he enjoyed fishing, walking his dog, reading, and later in life visiting his grandchildren.
