He began his education in Pennsylvania and at the age of 10 years old moved to Farwell. He attended Farwell Public School, Elba High School and graduated from St. Paul High School in 1985.

I just found out that Kevin passed. I'm so saddened and sorry. Kevin did farm work when he was in high school for my dad (Don Wolinski) in Farwell. Mom (Marlene Wolinski) and dad so enjoyed him. Kevin, Joni and their dog came to visit mom at Brookefield Park last year when I moved her there. That made mom very happy. I know that he and dad are enjoying a great visit up on the farm in Heaven now. To Kevin's family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Blessings to you all from our family, Kim, Dave, Kelly and Marlene Wolinski
