In Memory of Kevin Patrick Phelps 10/2/79-6/12/18

“My Heart, My Soul, My Son”

Kevin was born in Silver Spring, Maryland on 10/2/79.   From the moment of his birth, Kevin brought love and joy to everyone who knew him.  He was a sensitive, kind and extremely loving person with a sweet smile.

Kevin’s love of art led him to a career as an Animator.  He graduated from the University of Maryland in 2002 and attended Gnomon School of Visual Effects in 2004-2005.   He quickly became known and respected in the animation community, working with companies such as Laika, Nathan Love, Psyop, and others as a Freelance Animator in New York, Portland and Los Angeles.   Some of the well known projects that he worked on was a movie titled Paranorman, by Laika (2012) and many commercials such as Coke; Chips Ahoy; Michelin; Kool-Aid; Toys R Us; and M&M commercials (one of which appeared on the 2014 Super Bowl).

Kevin left us on June 12, 2018…my Forever 38.  “Until I see your face again when I am called to Heaven, may the Angels keep you in their care…My beautiful, sweet son, Kevin”
