Waterbury – Mr. Kevin R. DeLeon, 63. Passed away on Wednesday, March 13.
Kevin was born September 25, 1955 in Waterbury, son of the late Rodney and Marion (Nowie) DeLeon. Raised in Middlebury, Kevin attended local schools and was a graduate of Pomperaug High School, class of 1972 and received his BA Degree in Accounting from the University of Connecticut. After returning to Waterbury he joined Now Inc. to install insulation and weather-proof residential housing. He later established and became co-owner of KD Hall Associates, an insulation company that worked on many commercial building renovation projects. Notable Waterbury projects included insulation of the Brown Building and the Howard-Hughes building. Following a long interest in the culinary arts and restaurant business, he also established and became co-owner of Quench Café. Kevin was very outgoing, friendly, and social. He will surely be remembered for the pig roasts and barbeques he held for his many friends over the years.
Kevin is survived by Debra M. Woods, his partner of 24 years and her sons, David and Daniel and Daniel’s son, Silas Woods, to whom Kevin was his “Baba”; his brother, Rodney P. DeLeon of Middlebury and his sister, Ariel Zohar of Middlebury. He was predeceased by his sister, Marion R. Johnson.
