Kevin J. Sheahan | January 14, 1951 – January 28, 2023

Kevin Sheahan, 72, of Wyandotte, MI, passed away January 28, 2023, after nearly two years of living with metastatic melanoma.

Kevin was the beloved brother of Maureen Sheahan (Al Cholger) and Patrick Sheahan (Colleen Sheahan), the dear uncle of Elizabeth Stands, and loved by many cousins and friends.

Kevin moved to Wyandotte in 2016 for his retirement after a career in workers’ compensation insurance, enjoying time at its lovely riverside parks. He grew up in Oak Park and attended Catholic Central High School in Detroit, Wayne State University and Detroit College of Law. His first home as an adult was in Palmer Park, Detroit and then he later moved to Southfield.

Kevin was a devoted Catholic, an avid reader of local papers and the New York Times, and enjoyed his most-seasons back porch. He sought out political discussions with family, indulged in action and super-hero movies with good friends, and liked 60’s music and jazz.

He will be fondly remembered for his kindness, thoughtfulness, and love as a brother, uncle, cousin and friend.

A memorial will be held at St. Vincent Pallotti Parish, St. Joseph Church, 334 Elm St., Wyandotte MI 48192 on January 31, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. A luncheon will follow. Kevin will be interred with his parents at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

No flowers please. Donations in his honor to Alternatives for Girls, Detroit; Oxfam America; and COTS Detroit are welcome.
