Kevin Omar Campbell

It is with great sadness that the family of Kevin “Omar” Campbell announced his sudden passing on September 2, 2018. Kevin was born on April 4, 1984 in Kingston Jamaica. He will be fondly remembered by all who knew him. Kevin uplifted the lives of everyone around him including students, co-workers, friends and family. He graduated from Windsor High School, Class of 2002 and later earned a Bachelors Degree in History and a Masters in Special Education from American International College.

With this education, Kevin worked in educational institutions and the social services field, providing support to individuals with disabilities. He worked in many settings including The Grace Webb School, located at the Institute of Living – Hartford Hospital, located in Connecticut, The Children’s Study Home, and Vibra Hospital, located in Massachusetts. He taught history at the Springfield High School of Commerce where he also coached students on the freshmen basketball team.

His most recent employment was located at iCare, located in Rocky Hill, Connecticut and he was currently working as the head coach for the JV basketball team of West Springfield High School. Kevin will be missed by his co-workers, who say that he has made a positive impact on the lives of many students, clients and friends. His students remember him as an inspirational coach and teacher who cared about their well-being.

With a contagious smile and humble demeanor, he was a very respectful and kind-hearted young man. He was known as the “voice of reason” and was innovative in getting people to resolve their issues peacefully. He was an extraordinary person who was warm-hearted, humble, determined, prideful, educated, motivating, loving, respectful, athletic, handsome, genuine, family-oriented, generous, suave, a role model, enlightening, and a gentleman. In addition to his love of basketball, he was also a devoted Dallas Cowboys fan.

Kevin will be greatly missed by his mother, Marlene Quinitchett, father, Calvin Campbell, step-father, Lamont Quinitchett, four sisters Tracy-Ann Campbell of NC, Kay-Ann Campbell of Hartford, Shaneka Campbell of Hartford, and Cameryn Quinitchett of Windsor; nieces Aaniyah Felix, Nazarena Calloway, nephew Zion Calloway and a host of other relatives and friends. Gone but never forgotten.

A Wake Service for Kevin will take place on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 6:00PM – 8:00PM at Henry L. Fuqua Funeral Service, 94 Granby Street, Bloomfield, CT.
