Kevin P. Quinn

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Kevin P. Quinn. The page reports that “This page is set up for the family of our friend and fellow Marine, Kevin Quinn of Mashpee, MA.

Kevin was tragically taken from us on Saturday July 28 a little after midnight in Cotuit, MA in a motor vehicle crash as he was returning home from visiting his wife Kara and their newborn baby daughter at the maternity department of Cape Cod Hospital. He was supposed to be returning to the hospital later that morning to bring them both home to begin their new life with their daughter.

As he was driving home he was hit head-on by a vehicle driven by a person who was being pursued by police and crossed the center line into Kevin’s SUV.

Kevin is a combat veteran with two deployments to Afghanistan, returning home to marry the love of his life Kara Sullivan of Yarmouth.

Kevin had started Quinn Excavation and Septic in Mashpee a couple of years ago.

Kevin was very much excited but nervous about being a father, his daughter, Logan Audrey Quinn, born on July 25, at 2:19 a.m.”
