CANFIELD Kevin Michael Kolesar, born March 14, 1994, passed away June 16, 2011.
Kevin had just completed his Junior year at Canfield High School. He was looking forward to entering school in the Fall of 2011, as a Senior.
Kevin had planned on attending Youngstown State University and majoring in Business or Marketing.
Kevins hobbies centered around his car, a 1994 Chevy Camaro, that he purchased himself after his 16th birthday.
When he wasnt restoring his own vehicle, he could be found helping his friends working on their trucks and off-road vehicles. His love of restoration was inherited and bolstered by his late grandfather, Jacob A. Parish Jr.
Kevin attended events at Yankee Lake with his best friends as often as possible, a tradition started by his late father, Frank W Kolesar III. He was in the process of rebuilding a 1991 Suburban. He had hoped to one day enter in events.
Kevin was employed at Rulli Brothers Market in Austintown. He enjoyed his job, and being a financially responsible young man. He was blessed to work with his uncle, Frank, aunt, Louise, and cousins, Mark, Michael, Frankie, and Nick.
Special thanks to Michael Rulli and John Annichenni Sr. who both took a special interest in Kevin and treated him as if he were their-- own son.
Kevin, a son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew and friend, enriched all of the lives of each person he encountered. He was always praised for being respectful and polite.

Parish, who resides with the family; paternal grandfather, Frank W. Kolesar Sr.; uncle, John (Brenda) Kolesar; aunt, Ginger (Dave) Bulkey; as well as his great-aunts and uncles, Linda Shutrump, Angela Rulli, Nick (Luann) Rulli, Frank (Louise) Rulli, Tony (Karen) Rulli, Josephine (Ray) Janik, Mary (Jim) Carano; and first cousins, Darby, Tori, and Taryn Kolesar, and Jennifer and Raymond Lonsway.
