The family will receive friends from 11 am to noon on Friday (April 21, 2023) at Brew Funeral Home, 48 South Street in Auburn, NY. A funeral service will be held at noon followed by a private burial at Fort Hill Cemetery.
Kevin was born on March 17, 1946 in Corning, NY the son of the late James and Lois (Hall) Caward. He lived throughout military bases around the world during his childhood and graduated from Oxen Hill in Maryland, Class of 1964. He followed his parents to New York in the late 1970's and made Auburn, NY his home. It was there that he met the love of his life and was married in 1983.
Kevin was proud to be a former Exalted Ruler of the Elks Lodge. He was an avid hunter and known by his family as a jack-of-all-trades. He never let his physical stature get in his way and his late wife Elaine said it best, "Great things come in small packages." His proudest accomplishment was without a doubt, his daughter Heather.
Kevin is survived by his daughter, Heather (George Dailey) Caward of Waterloo; Aunt Jean Hall of Maryland; special cousin Sue Caward of Corning, NY and many cousins, extended family members and friends.
Kevin was preceded in death by his wife, Elaine (Pinckney) Caward in 1989, his father James R. Caward in 2010; his mother Lois (Hall) Caward in 2018; and his sister Sherry Caward in 2017.
