  • Kevin S. McGlinn, a resident of Draper, Utah, peacefully passed away on Friday, July 9 at Intermountain Hospital in
    Murray surrounded by his loving family after a brief illness. He was 60 years old.
    Born in Camden, New Jersey on August 1, 1960 to Virginia (Driscoll) McGlinn and Edmund McGlinn, Kevin was the
    youngest of six children and spent most of his early years in LaFayette Hill, Pennsylvania and Ocean City, New
    Jersey. After attending LaSalle Catholic College Preparatory High School, Kevin went to the University of Miami
    and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Communication and was an avid football fan. He then went to work in the
    travel industry starting with Trans World Airlines and continuing to Worldspan where he met the love of his life
    and future bride, Kim Pullen. He then went on to a long career with Royal Caribbean International where he was a
    multiple award-winning Sr. National Account Manager handling their largest e-commerce accounts until he retired
    in January 2020. Most recently, Kevin worked for Traeger Grills and was able to share his passion of grilling
    through sales. He is well known for his famous grilled jalapeño poppers (along with his beautiful blue eyes and
    fantastic sense of humor).
    Kevin and Kim were married for twenty-seven years until his death and shared a love of travel and adventure.
    Throughout their marriage, which includes two children, Kyle (24) and Kendall (18), they traveled extensively
    around the world and lived in Atlanta, Georgia, Sarasota, Florida, and currently in Draper, Utah. Kevin enjoyed
    mountain biking and hiking and especially loved to ski on the “champagne powder” in Utah with his son. He also
    loved to take our precious puppies, Baxter and Beau, to the dog park with his daughter. Although he didn’t like to
    admit it, he also enjoyed our kitty, Calypso, and liked to bribe her for affection using treats.
    Kevin was steadfast in his faith as a Christian and member of the St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Draper. He
    is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Jim McGlinn. He is survived by his wife, Kim (Pullen) McGlinn, his
    children, Kyle and Kendall McGlinn, his siblings, Virginia McGlinn, Maureen Rome (Don), Michael McGlinn, and
    Edmund McGlinn. Kevin also adored his family through marriage and is survived by his mother and father-in-law,
    Beth and Stan Pullen and brother-in-law, Mike Pullen (Beth) and many nieces and nephews.
    Visitation will be held at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Draper, Utah on Monday, July 12 at 10:30 am and
    will be followed by Mass at 11:30 am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Brain Tumor
    Association (www.abta.org) to support research for Glioblastoma Multiforme in Kevin’s memory and would be
    greatly appreciated.

    Kim, Ginny, Reenie, Michael and Ed - I was so shocked and sad to hear the news of Kevin's passing. I have nothing but fun memories of our childhood together in Lafayette Hill. The closeness of our families made Kev seem like a brother and and I'm sure Ginny and Edna will be ready to spoil him with love as they all meet again, albeit much too soon for Kevin. I'm very, very sorry for your loss. Rest in Peace Kev.
    Love to all of you,
    Shelly

    Dear Kim, Kyle, and Kendall,
    Jim and I are so very sorry for your loss. It is such a shock to lose somebody with such little notice. Kevin was an amazing, caring person who will be sorely missed by all who knew him. If there is ever anything we can do for you, please reach out. Gioblastoma sounds like such a terrible diagnosis, and we are glad that at least Kevin did not suffer for too long. We are also happy that he was able to see so much family over Memorial Day as well as have family visit at the hospital. We are sad to miss his funeral. His generous, fun spirit will live on in his children!
    Love, Diana and Jim
