Obituary of Kevin Fouhy

Kevin Charles Fouhy of Poughkeepsie NY, passed away May 8th after a brief battle with cancer.

Kevin was born on October 18, 1950 in South Bend, Indiana to Robert and Carolyn (Vanek) Fouhy, who pre-deceased him.

He attended local schools and worked in various professions including construction and at local automobile dealerships as a sales associate. He then worked at IBM for 19 years before retiring. After a short hiatus he joined Metro North Railroad for 10 years and retired again there as a Carman in Brewster, NY. 

Kevin had a true passion for cars and anything mechanical and owned numerous classic vehicles of all types including his favorite, Cadillacs. He was a fixture at many of the area car cruises and came home with numerous 1st Place awards. He loved tinkering and if he couldn’t fix it, it wasn’t broken. Kevin was the go to guy for all his family and friends whenever they needed something fixed, figured out or built. Kev was also a dyed in the wool Democrat just like his father, which led to many a heated discussions with his Right leaning bro.

In 1973 he married Diane Lundewall and 2 years later they welcomed their prized possession, their only daughter Allison. Kevin remarried in 1978 to Denise (Scott) Romano who passed in 1989. More recently for nearly a decade he shared his life with girlfriend Susan Keating who survives at home.

Kevin is survived by his daughter Allison Fouhy-Bodden, step daughter Nicole Romano, brother Dennis, sister-in-law Kathy, nephews Ryan, Matthew and Christopher, grandson CJ Bodden; and Heather Browne.

Kevin is also survived by many Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins throughout the country.

A special shout out to Mark and Marty, his other Metro North buddies, and friends from over the years for their friendship and support.

A celebration of life will be held at a future time. In remembrance of his life a donation can be made to Tunnels To or a cause of your choice.

We would be remiss not to mention the amazing nurses, doctors and staff at Vassar Hospital whose caring and compassion made such a difficult time in our lives so much easier. 

Remember to figure out how it works before you can fix it and pay it forward whenever you can.
