Remembering Penobscot Island Air’s Kevin Waters

ISLESBORO, ME — Kevin Waters ran Penobscot Air as he did his own life always the best he could do with hard work, respect and love. He expected the same of his employees and that makes Penobscot Air so special. Kevin’s big heart was evident in all he did. His work ethic, kindness and willingness to do what ever it took to make things happen. He gave himself and his love freely and was never afraid to show his emotions, his eyes filled with tears over happy and sad occasions.

He loved the islands and the people and was certainly loved in return. Kevin did so much good that he did quietly because it was the right thing to do and no one ever knew about it. He would be amazed to hear how people are honoring him, he was so humble. Kevin leaves a big hole in our lives, but I think he leaves an even bigger lesson for us as to how we should be, the world would be a better place with more Kevins. To remember Kevin with his great smile, his bear hugs and his “God loves ya you do good work” will always be there for us and many others.
