1948 - 2022
Kevin Walline passed away on January 21, 2022, at 73, after battling multiple myeloma for the past two years. Despite the medical conditions he suffered throughout his life, he always put the needs of his family, friends, and the community above his own.
Kevin will be missed by his wife, Rose Walline, family, friends, and all who knew him. He will be lovingly remembered by his children Curtis Walline and Cindie Lembo as the “best dad ever” because he was hardworking, generous, patient, and kind. He always took the time to help anyone who needed it, especially because he could fix anything! Kevin liked doing home renovation projects, designing and building lamps, furniture, and creating art. Kevin enjoyed being active and loved playing golf, fishing, and bowling. Kevin was an avid reader and was always seen with a new book.
Kevin had a career spanning over fifty years with Con Edison, where he started as a splicer in 1966. His work included providing electricity and lighting for the first responders and emergency workers at the World Trade Center following the attacks on September 11, 2001. In 2016, he won the company’s highest honor, the “Living Our Values” Award for excellence in service, teamwork, and improving the quality of life of community members.
Kevin was actively involved in volunteer work and charitable organizations. Within the Con Edison community, Kevin helped organize an annual charity softball tournament for twenty years, raising over $200,000 for the Guiding Eyes for the Blind and Mercy First. For decades, he coached Special Olympics golf, Challenger softball, basketball, and soccer for individuals with disabilities. Following his retirement, he volunteered for The Fuller Center for Housing to rehabilitate homes for people in need.
