Kevin M. Premore

PLATTSBURGH - Kevin M. Premore, 35, of Prospect Avenue, passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 15, 2013, at his residence. He was born Feb. 15, 1978, in Plattsburgh, the son of John F. and Pauline J. (Schweikert) Premore.

He graduated from Plattsburgh High School in 1996 and then attended the University of Montana, where he received his bachelor of arts degree in 2000.

Kevin was currently a cartographer for the federal government in San Francisco, Calif.

Kevin had a five-year battle with brain cancer, but he never let it get him down. He continued to live his life to the fullest. The mountains were his passion and that is where he went with his many friends across the U.S. Along with his dog, Sugi; and his devoted partner, Shannon, he traveled until the end. He also had a great passion for family. Kevin couldn't wait to go on his annual backcountry trip with his brothers, BJ and Travis. As soon as one trip was done, he was planning next year's. His niece, Adelie, was the apple of his eye. Kevin hiked, rock climbed, ice climbed, skied and kayaked, solo or with friends across the country from the Florida Everglades to backcountry Alaska. Two of his finest achievements were a self-guided ascent of Mt. McKinley (Denali) and climbing and rappelling Devils Tower. He loved his "Lifeteam" friends, Ben, Lisa and Chris. He was a Phish-head and he traveled many a mile to see a concert. Though his life was shortened, he lived it to the fullest, traveling and adventuring with friends all over North America as well as to Panama, Japan, and Southeast Asia. Thanks to Gus, Shane, Ethan, Kie, Matt, Drew, Zimm, and all his old high school friends who made his final months very memorable.

Enough cannot be said about his loving partner, Shannon, an amazing woman who will be near and dear to our hearts forever. Kevin is also survived by his parents, John and Pauline Premore of Plattsburgh; two brothers, Brian "BJ" Premore and his wife Sherry of Lebenon, N.H.; and Travis Premore and his wife Katie of Orlando, Fla.; one niece, Adelie; his Oma; his FAL; Uncle Hank; cousin, John and his family; his Plattsburgh family; aunts, Carol, Sharon and Judy; uncles, Dennis, and Jr.; and his many cousins. Kevin took us on one heck of a ride! We will all miss him dearly.
