Kevin Louis Pagliccia, age 47, died unexpectedly at his home in Lyman, Maine, on Tuesday, May 11, 2021.
Kevin was born in Stoneham, Massachusetts, and spent his early childhood in Northeastern Massachusetts.
He moved to Kingston, New Hampshire, in 7th grade where he met his future wife, Heather Bryant, and many lifelong friends.
He graduated from Sanborn Regional High School with the Class of 1992. Kevin and Heather reconnected in 2008 and started a new chapter of their lives with their blended family. The couple were married in 2015.
Kevin picked up the guitar at age 12 and never put it down. He played guitar in Vicious Circle and Stone Soup. Both bands played the circuit from New England to NYC.
Later in life, he collaborated with other musicians on individual projects, including an album that will be released soon.
Kevin was proud to have played on stage beside so many other talented musicians, participating in All Night Thing charity concerts which benefited N.A.M.I. NH (National Alliance for Mental Illness) in honor of Chris Cornell, one of his favorite musicians.
Over the last year of his life, Kevin challenged himself and learned to record his own original music. Those songs rang throughout his home nightly as he played them live for his children as they fell asleep.
Kevin had a long career in foodservice sales which lasted over 25 years. He often traveled for work but did not enjoy the time spent away from his family. In 2019, he became a sales trainer for Performance Food Service- NorthCenter, a position that suited him nicely due to his impressive sales experience in the industry. This position also allowed Kevin to step away from planes and spend more time at home with the people he loved.
Survivors include his wife, Heather Bryant-Pagliccia, daughter Chloe Pagliccia (with his former wife, Rebecca Bonser), and stepson Liam Buckley of Lyman; stepson Logan (and Casey) Buckley and their children Eliana and Odin of North Berwick; stepdaughter Rose Wolfe of Portland; his father Steve (and Denise) Pagliccia, and sister Darcy Pagliccia of Framingham, Massachusetts; and nephew Chris (and Erin) Pagliccia of Plaistow, New Hampshire. He also leaves a group of close friends, a large extended family, and his estranged mother and brother.
Kevin’s celebration of life will be held on Thursday, May 20, between the hours of 2-6 pm at The Victoria Inn Bed & Breakfast and Pavilion located at 430 High Street, Hampton, New Hampshire.
The event will be held outside. Please bring your smiles, laughter, and stories, as this is what Kevin would have wanted.
