PROSPECT — Mr. Kevin T. Molcyk, 35, of Prospect, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015. He was the husband and soul mate of Elizabeth (Tricarico) Molcyk.

Kevin was born in Waterbury on June 29, 1979, a son of Kevin Thomas Molcyk of Prospect and Rhonda (Petroncelli) Mascolo of Waterbury. He worked as a truck driver at Thurston Foods and was a communicant of St. Anthony Roman Catholic Church in Prospect. He enjoyed coaching his children’s baseball and football teams, something he had devoted much time and planning to since the day that Jace was born. He always found pleasure in spending time with these boys and said many times how blessed he was to have so many great young men in his life and was so proud to be a part of their development in sports. Kevin also enjoyed riding, whether it was his quad with his kids or his motorcycle for solitude, he had a magnetic attraction to motors. He was looking forward to a great spring season with the boys and introducing Leighton to their obsession. He was a devout Catholic, father, husband and Miami Dolphins fan.

In addition to his wife and parents, Kevin is survived by his sons, Jace and Kole, and daughter, Leighton, who were the greatest loves in his life. They were his heart and soul and there is nobody in the world that he would rather spend his time with. He lived for his children, sharing daily his love and knowledge of sports, the farm, quads and anything in the woods. He always put a life lesson into whatever activity he was doing with them. He is also survived by three brothers, Thomas, Joseph and Michael; his aunt, Kelly and other aunts, uncles and cousins, who he thought of as his best friends. He was predeceased by his beloved grandmother, Patricia Molcyk.

Kevin’s funeral will be held on Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015 at 9:15 a.m. from the Prospect Memorial Funeral Home, 72 Waterbury Road, Prospect to St. Anthony Roman Catholic Church, 4 Union City Road, Prospect for a mass at 10 a.m. Burial will be in Prospect Cemetery. Calling hours will be held at the funeral home on Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015 from 4 to 8 p.m. Members of the Prospect and Naugatuck Youth Sports teams are invited to assemble at the funeral home on Wednesday evening at 6 p.m.
