WARREN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Kevin Robert Wise, age 61, passed away Saturday afternoon, September 26, at his residence surrounded by his loving family, after a long battle with cancer.
Kevin was born February 13, 1959, in Warren, to the late John Wise and Betsy Wiley Wise.
He was a 1977 graduate of Labrae High School and was a proud veteran of the U.S. Air Force.
Kevin worked at Trumbull Memorial Hospital where he was a pillar of the emergency room for 30+ years. He was described by many as the smile of the ER and he loved what he did.
