Kevin Robert Wise, 1959-2020

WARREN — Kevin Robert Wise, 61, passed away Saturday afternoon, Sept. 26, 2020, at his residence surrounded by his loving family after a long battle with cancer.

Kevin was born Feb. 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-plus years. He was described by many as the smile of the ER, and he loved what he did.

Kevin was a sports fan, especially of the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Indians and The Ohio State Buckeyes. He was a basketball coach to many and an avid spectator to all of his daughters’ sporting events.

Family was paramount to Kevin. He was always a family man to not only his wife, children and grandsons but to his nieces and nephews as well.

Kevin was preceded in death by his father, John; and infant brother, Robert.

He will be forever missed by his mother, Betsy; his beloved wife, Stacey; his children, Marissa Wise, Zachary Wise, Heather Shaver, Rachael Shaver and Amanda Boehm; his two grandsons, Carter and Theo Boehm; and soon-to-be grandson, Bryson Wright; his sisters, Esther Wise, Vanessa Hamilton, Doreen Anderson and Yvonne Flores; and several nieces, nephews and many good friends.

Friends may call 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at Lane Funeral Home Roberts-Clark Chapel, 180 Garfield Drive NE, Warren, Ohio. Social distancing will be observed and expected, and a mask will be required to enter the funeral home. In an effort to honor Kevin, feel free to wear your OSU and Browns gear during calling hours.

A celebration of Kevin’s life will be private. Interment will be in Braceville Cemetery.
