Kevin Patrick Riordan, a loving husband and friend of many, passed away on May 10, 2023, at the age of 55 in Peoria, AZ. Kevin was born in Flagstaff, AZ. He attended NAU receiving a degree in Hospitality Management. He was a corporate trainer for Restaurant Companies and worked all over the West Coast, Southern and Alaska States. Realizing his true calling he became a teacher. He taught for 20 years at Sevilla Primary East and was a respected teacher in the Alhambra School District.
Kevin is survived by wife Kimberly, Father Joe (Rosemary), sister Kelly (Don), and brothers Tim (Karen), Keith, and Terry. His niece Madison (Remington), great nephew and Godson Benjamin and great niece Charlotte. Kevin was predeceased by his mother Jay and brother Jim.
He had an incredible love for the outdoors whether it was fishing, golfing, hiking, or tending to his backyard oasis. You could always find him sporting his superhero shirts and sunglasses. Kevin inherited his love of animals from his mother. As a child, he would try to smuggle stray puppies, kittens, birds, and hamsters into the house.
Kevin was never scared to take on new opportunities and did everything with honesty and integrity. He had very strong values and was liked by everyone, mostly due to his positive energy. Those who knew him would attest to his quick-witted humor that kept us all laughing. His handsome smile, wit and kind nature will be missed and will never, ever be forgotten.
