WINDSOR – William Kevin Whitehead, age 59, passed away peacefully on June 6, 2022 at his home in Windsor. Kevin was a well-respected master electrician and the owner of Whitehead Electric in Windsor. Those who had the opportunity to know and love Kevin feel an enormity of loss, as he had an extraordinary ability to love and provide for his family and friends. He was a man of unshakable fortitude, immeasurable intelligence and endless wisdom. Kevin spent every second of his life ensuring his deeply loved wife and children were cared for, happy, safe and most importantly, he placed his own limitless strength within their hearts. That strength has given us the ability to carry him in our hearts now, though we feel the weight of the world without him here to hold it up.
