Kevin was born April 9, 1943 in Spokane to Dr. John and Erna Brennan and passed away unexpectedly on April 10, 2022 at home after a routine heart procedure. He graduated from Lewis and Clark High School in 1961 and shortly thereafter entered the Navy. There he was assigned to be in the Admirals office as his typist. A short stint in the reserve followed. He was very proud of his time in the Navy. After returning home from his service, he was employed by the Washington Liquor Control Board until he retired in 2005 after 42 years. During that time, he was the manager of several liquor stores. He married the love of his life, Teresa Decker in 1980. They had a beautiful and loving relationship and shared each other’s interests throughout their 42 years together. Kevin also served as a Volunteer Reserve Officer for the Spokane Police Department for 8 years. Kevin was an avid golfer and with his best friend Danny White they had many fun rounds at many of the area courses. He enjoyed collecting Sports Memorabilia and his collections were impressive. Kevin always had a witty and wonderful sense of humor. Kevin is preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife Teresa and his brothers Kent (Cleo) and his most recent pet Schnauzer, Spirit. Funeral Services will be held at Hennessey Funeral Home on Division St., April 27 at 11am, followed by Military  Internment Services at Veteran Memorial Cemetery in Medical Lake, Washington at 1pm.
