Kevin David Skwarski, age 27, passed away on Friday March 30, 2018 in Panorama City California.
Born in Rahway, New Jersey, he grew up in Cranford before moving to Panorama City California two years ago.
He was a graduate of Cranford High School. Kevin continued his education at Wyotech, in Blairsville, Pennsylvania. He earned a certification in high performance auto mechanics. Kevin took that knowledge and pursued a career in the automotive industry. He last worked for Rydell Chevrolet in Northridge, California.
Growing up, Kevin had a passion for BMX bicycling. His first taste for mechanics came from his Dad, and quickly followed with his first job at the Cranford Bike Shop. However, he was not limited to repairs and tuning..he exceled at executing BMX street-style tricks. Kevin loved his sleep, but when he was awake, he brought energy, creativity and a smile that few could match.
Kevin is pre-deceased by his father, David Skwarski, who passed away in 2004. He is survived by his loving mother Elaine, loving sister Julia and her husband John Markowitz.
There will be a visitation Monday from 3 to 8 pm at the Gray Memorial Funeral Home, 12 Springfield Avenue, Cranford, and a mass of Christian Burial at St Theresa's Catholic Church in Kenilworth is 11am Tuesday April 10, 2018 .
