STAMP Kevin Passed peacefully away on November 20th, 2020 after a short, courageous battle with cancer, Kevin Francis Stamp, aged 74 years. Predeceased by parents Jim and Ella (Grangel); mother and father-in-law Thomas (Gertrude) McCann; brother Leo (Butch); sister-in-law Louise (French) and brother-in-law Tim. Kevin leaves to mourn his loving wife of 50 years Marie (nee McCann); sons: Seamus (Jennifer), Daniel (Charlene) and Neil (Jennifer); grandchildren: Holden, Charlotte, Ella, Rowan and Callum; brothers Jim (Patsy) and Don (Anne Marie); brother-in-law Pat (Elizabeth) and sisters-in-law Margaret (Donnie) and Marie as well as a large number of relatives and friends. While Dad lost his sight in 1999, he never lost sight of what was truly important. He was a loving husband, a devoted father and the best Pop ever. He loved his time working at CN and all the friends he made along the way. Dad's knowledge of St. John's and Newfoundland were unmatched. He was a voracious reader and was able to connect most people with a family member that worked at the railway. Dad also had an uncanny ability to connect with people no matter where he went. If left alone, you'd always come back to find someone talking and having a laugh with him. Most importantly, Dad was fiercely loyal. If he was in your corner, you had a friend for life. He would support you no matter what and passed this lesson onto his children and grandkids. Dad left a special mark on all those he met. While he may have left us for now, he will never be forgotten. Rest easy Dad, the train has left the station one last time. Enjoy the ride. Resting at Caul’s Funeral Home, LeMarchant Road. The family will receive visitors on Tuesday, November 24th, 2020 from 2 p.m. – 9 p.m. with cremation to follow. A celebration of life and burial will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to Newfoundland Railway Coastal Museum.
