Kevin James McCabe Sr.

April 2, 1960—Sept. 2, 2019

Kevin James McCabe Sr. age 59, passed away peacefully on Monday, Sept. 2, 2019, in Spokane, WA. He was born in La Puente, CA, on April 2, 1960, to DeWayne and Elsie McCabe. One of ten children, he spent most of his childhood between Pomona and Grizzly Flats, CA. At the age of 14, his family moved to Longview, WA, where he attended Mark Morris High School. This is where he met the love of his life, Nellie Wilkerson. They married shortly after high school and raised three sons together.

Kevin always had a passion for classic cars and helping those in need. He would spend countless hours under the hood of a car, teaching his sons far more than just simple mechanics. Though life threw him curve balls and challenged him at times, he was proud of the morals he instilled in his children and their accomplishments. He led a simple life, one where he never missed an opportunity to express his love for his family and friends or give a helping hand.

He is survived by his wife Nellie; sons Kevin (Trina) McCabe and DeWayne (Melissa) McCabe; brothers Thomas, Michael, Kenneth, Timothy; sisters Debbie, Dee, Michelle, Linda; three grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, a son Michael McCabe in 2018 and a sister Ruby in 2019.

A private ceremony will be held at a later time. In his honor, please take a moment to help someone in need and spread kindness in the world around you.
