Kevin F. Sartoris, 62, passed away suddenly on August 22, 2023, after a long battle with a kidney issue. Born in Oklahoma, Kevin was the son of Paul K. Sartoris and the late Mary Ellen Quinn Sartoris, who will welcome him to his new heavenly home.
Kevin graduated from Linton High School, where he was editor of the high school newspaper, and attended Syracuse University where, as a freshman, he was the art editor of the Daily Orange. A gifted artist, in first grade his art submission was rejected by the Diocesan Art Contest because they said it could not have been done by a first grader. His first-grade teacher knew better.
Kevin owned Muse Gifts & Books store in Marlborough, NH. He was also very active in the Pagan community.
Kevin was a unique person with a sharp mind and clever wit. He looked at life through a humorous lens and was a delight to be around.
Kevin was predeceased by his grandparents, his mother, and his nephew Aidan. He is survived by his father, sisters Karen Bonk (Edward) and Janet Wheeler (Greg), aunts and uncle, nieces, several cousins and many friends.
We would like to thank the nurses Fresenius Kidney Care, Monadnock for taking such good care of Kevin. We also would like to give special thanks to Ken (Spike) Freeman for being such a wonderful friend to Kevin.
