Kevin was a fierce competitor, always trying to improve his stature, whether it be on the softball diamond or a wished-for tryout with the Bears. I remember he being able to challenge any "long ball" hitter by parking himself in shallow left field. When the hitter would see this, he would obviously get puffed up and try to blast one over his head. McNulty would most often be quick enough to catch up with the ill-fated long ball. He later became troubled by his percieved demons and unfortunately succumbed to his eventuality. I'll always remember him for  his "in-your-face" determination to compete.

Kevin was a good guy and a good friend. I knew him from jr. high (Haven) through highschool and we also worked together at the same place for a while. He was always the clown and could easily make me laugh. I definitely miss him.

Kevin and I became friends in 6th grade at Haven.  He was shy, a little rough but sweethearted.  Then in high school, he suddenly started to be extremely loud and funny, in a stream of words that can only be described as Robin Williams-like.  I was there when he discovered that voice, in the back garage of my parents' house.  We were all surprised, then it became part of his persona.  But deep down, he was still very shy.  He is missed.

His buddies around his home introduced me to Kevin in HS. I had a chance to play Rugby with him senior year. He sure loved most all sports and found a niche in rugby during Senior year and after HS. He was loved by all who knew him and we are all are sad we couldn't be there to help him. He was not one to ask for help. I offered him housing one or two times when I was in Normal and later on just before his passing.  I get a laugh remembering us listen to 70's soft rock and roll music in the very clean family Caddy and the ( Company )Red Chevy El Camino in the hoods of N Evanston and Lighthouse Beach. . Also remember his Dad's sense of humor by having two differant political canidates poster ads on oppostites sides of billboard ontop of El Camino.

I can't say I knew Kevin well, but I really liked him.  The thing I particularly remember is his dead-on impression of Floyd the barber from the Andy Griffith Show.  It was as good an impersonation as I've ever heard.
