Kevin Michael McCrea, of Plymouth Meeting, PA died on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, at Kindred Hospital. He was 55.

He was the beloved husband of 30 years to Marie Breslin McCrea.

Born in Philadelphia, he was the son of the late John McCrea and Margaret (nee Adams).

Kevin was a true patriot. He proudly served his country in the United States Army from 1982-1984. Due to an injury as a paratrooper, he was honorably discharged and medically retired. Following his military career, Kevin chose to defend his country through law. He graduated with a degree in criminal justice from Temple University, followed by a law degree from Widner University and became a licensed attorney in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He was a true academic, and took many credits towards a doctorate in Psychology at LaSalle University. His motto in education was “Be a Sponge: absorb everything.”

Kevin absolutely loved his life, even though it was not the life he planned. He had a remarkable perspective while traveling his journey as a disabled veteran, touching people around the world with his tenacious story. He was a man of strength, gratitude, perseverance, and determination amongst many other things.

Through music, movies, books and sweets, Kevin found much enjoyment. He was also a passionate Philadelphia Sports fan. He truly was a person who could find happiness in even the simplest of things.

Kevin lived a life for others, and he never let his disability get the best of him. He will be remembered for how intensely he loved his life, his family, his friends and his faith.

In addition to his loving wife he is survived by his 3 children, Allison, Kevin and Jenna McCrea, his brothers; Brendan and Christine McGuigan of Wyndmoor, John and Michelle McGuigan of Philadelphia, his sisters Megan McCrea and William Madway of Chestnut Hill, Linda and Charlie Miller of New Jersey and his brother and sister in law, John and Lisa Breslin of Jenkintown. He is also survived by his parents-in-law Marie and Jack Breslin, step father Al Deutsch, aunt and uncles; Kathy and Dan Falkenstein of Media, Joseph Stenz of Chalfont, and Binny Barr of Roxborough, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends; especially his close friend Tim Wade and cousin Freddy Sheppard who he considered as brothers. He was predeceased by his stepfather, Jake McGuigan.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend his viewing on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 from 4:00 - 8:00 pm at Epiphany of Our Lord Church, 3050 Walton Road, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462 and to his Funeral Mass, 11:00 am on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 in Epiphany of Our Lord Church.  His interment in Washington Crossing National Cemetery, Newtown, PA will be held privately.
