July 9, 1968 – September 27, 2017

A loving son, nephew, cousin and brother, Kevin Avila prided himself as the devoted, self-proclaimed third-parent to his niece, Jordan, and nephews, Mason and Ryan Chavez. He spent some of his best times instilling a love of dance, music, dress-up, and his always biting sense of humor that shall be carried on for generations to come. A person dedicated to making an impact, Kevin found his one true love as a marriage and family therapist, working in the heart of San Francisco. He is survived by a plethora of best friends, a title held far and wide, as he was known to throw love and devotion to all who knew him. He will be forever missed and stands as a reminder that we shall not be silent. Please ask for help whenever you need it. You are loved. Suicide prevention hot line: 1-800-273-8255.
