Obituary for Kevin P. Grondin

Standish- Kevin P. Grondin, 27, of Milt Brown Road, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.

Kevin was born in Portland, Maine, on August 4, 1990, to Ronald L. Jr. and Jo-Ellen (Cowley) Grondin. He spent his earliest years growing up in Pensacola, FL., relocated back to Maine in 2005 and he graduated from Scarborough High School in the class of 2010. From a young age he excelled in sports and was in the T-Ball World Series at the age of 5. At age seven he found his love of ice hockey, he went on to become an outstanding goalie and had recorded multiple shutouts by the age of eight.

In 2010, Kevin was involved in a motor vehicle accident in Scarborough which claimed the life of his best friend Steven Delano. Following the accident, he spent several weeks in the hospital and rehabilitation center sustaining short term memory loss, as well as a traumatic brain injury. Kevin fought through and persevered all while mourning the loss of his best friend. His courage, strength, and determination to get better, along with his lifelong commitment to keep his best friend’s memory alive, was a shear testament to this amazing young man. Kevin held toy drives for children of the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, in Steven’s memory. He also organized holiday festivities at the accident memorial site; such as a birthday party, pumpkin carving and decorating Christmas trees for Steven’s family and friends.

Kevin was determined to get back to work after the accident, taking on part time jobs at Cabela’s and Binga’s Stadium. In 2013 he was able to take on a full time position as an ER Tech at Maine Medical Center before transferring to the Security Department. A position he held for more than two years and received a letter of commendation for his outstanding performance and his ability to control behavioral situations. After leaving his security position he went to work with the Maine Department of Transportation as a transportation worker. During his first year on the job Kevin competed in his first driver rodeo, he did an outstanding job against veteran drivers and placed high in the driver rankings.

When not working, Kevin loved being in the outdoors hunting, fishing, riding his Ranger ATV, snowmobiling, ice fishing, or going to Beech Ridge Motor Speedway. His greatest love, however, was the time he spent surrounded by his family, especially his children Kinsley and Landon. They were the loves of his life.

Kevin was predeceased by his best friend, Steven Delano; and his special aunt, Marsha Spearin. He is survived by his parents, Ronald and Jo-Ellen Grondin of Scarborough; a brother, Kyle E. Grondin of Scarborough and his girlfriend Lizz Starbird of Windham; a daughter, Kinsley A. Grondin of Standish; a son, Landon M. Grondin of Standish; his fiance’, Kaytlin Buzzell of Standish; paternal grandparents, Ronald L. Grondin Sr., of Scarborough and Sandra L. Grondin of Yarmouth; maternal grandparents, Paul E. and Barbara A. Cowley of Scarborough; special second parents, Mark and Cindy Delano of Scarborough; Peyton Brann whom he held dear to his heart and treated like his own daughter of Windham; a nephew, Brian Grondin of Scarborough; many special aunts, uncles, and cousins.
