Kevin Thomas Van Amburg

Kevin Thomas Van Amburgh, 39, of Brookfield, CT, formerly of Wallkill and Newburgh, NY, passed away on Friday, July 21, 2017 after courageously battling cancer for four years.  He was the loving husband of Kerin Kelly Van Amburgh.

Kevin was born in Middletown, NY on September 28, 1977, a son of Neil Van Amburgh and Ruth Segali.

A resident of Brookfield for the past 6 years, Kevin was most recently a crew member at Trader Joe’s of Fairfield.  He was previously employed by Wells Fargo in Ridgefield, CT.  Kevin had a passion for music; he played the guitar and bass and loved reading biographies about musicians.  He was a true New York Yankees fan and wrote articles for the Yanks Go Yard website.  Kevin will be remembered for so many things, but especially for his sense of humor and ability to recall trivia related to music, baseball, and movies.
