Kevin F. Nelson

Kevin Francis Nelson, 52, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Barnstable, MA, on January 1, 2017.

Kevin is survived by his daughter, Sennin Nelson, of Providence, RI, and his partner of many years, Claudia Parker. Also, his parents; mother, Sandra (Fama) Tzannos Mallory, and stepfather, Bernard Mallory; father, Mike Nelson; step-mother, Eileen Nelson; sisters, Krista Tzannos-Byron, Kara Mallory, Cheri-Ann Mullally; and Kimberly Campbell; niece, Elektra Newman; mother of his daughter Patricia Ford; and many beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Kevin was born on March 2, 1964 in Brockton, MA, but never strayed far from the Cape, where he moved with his family in 1980. He loved food and worked as a master chef in a number of local restaurants throughout his life, most recently at Mooncusser’s Restaurant in Harwich, bringing his passion and enthusiasm everywhere he went. Kevin also had a lifelong love of all types of music, and was an avid fisherman. He was mischievous, a snappy dresser, possessed a wonderful sense of humor, and had a smile and an exuberance that rubbed off on everyone he loved, and who loved him.

Visiting hours will be from 11 am to 4 pm on Friday, January 6th at the John-Lawrence Funeral Home, 3778 Falmouth Rd., Marstons Mills.
