Falmouth – Kevin Fahrman\nOur hearts swell with sadness as we say farewell to our cherished friend and Patron Saint of All Things Camera and Kindness, Kevin Fahrman, who departed suddenly at the age of 67. Maine grieves the loss of a beloved son, while his family and friends struggle to find solace in this heart-wrenching time. Kevin is survived by his wife, Patti Urban; his daughters, Sierra and Kelly; his son, Colin and his partner, Amy Anderson; and his brother, Brian Fahrman.\n\nKevin's profound impact on those fortunate enough to have known him is undeniable. His unwavering support, endless patience, and remarkable technical expertise empowered many, enabling them to embrace their artistic vision. However, Kevin was more than just a skilled mentor; he was a gentle hero, a steadfast friend, and a source of laughter and love.\n\nAs we remember Kevin, we cannot help but smile through our tears at his infectious humor, practical jokes, and the long-held secret that he was a visionary behind Portland's Valentine's Day Bandit. Yes, you read that right. For decades, this mysterious figure warmed the hearts of the city by placing hundreds of red paper hearts on storefronts and notable landmarks, and huge banners in unexpected places. Kevin's simple yet powerful gesture brought joy and love to the community, reminding us all to cherish our loved ones and treasure the place we call home.\n\nWith a humble and gracious heart, Kevin selflessly devoted himself to his community, touching countless lives with his kindness and generosity. His unwavering commitment to his family was unparalleled, knew no bounds. One of Kevin's passions was SailMaine, where his daughter Sierra sailed for many years. He tirelessly captured the beauty of the races through his extraordinary photography, donating his time and talent to the cause. His love for sailing and the community is a testament to the incredible man he was.\n\nWe cherish the priceless work of art that was Kevin Fahrman, and we will miss him dearly. In the face of this tremendous loss, we unite in our grief and our love for Kevin. As we move forward, we must honor his memory by emulating his generosity of spirit, his selflessness, and his unwavering support for others. We strive to carry the light he brought into our lives, allowing his spirit to guide us in our quest to be better people.\n\nRest in peace, gentle giant. We will miss your brilliant mind, your kind heart, and your boundless love. Though our hearts are heavy, we take comfort in knowing that you live on in the countless lives you touched and the beautiful memories we hold dear.\n\nIn the words of a dear friend, "We'll see you when the light is just right.”\n\nA celebration of the life of Kevin Fahrman will take place on Tuesday, April 25 at the Portland Yacht Club, Route 88 in Falmouth. There will be a gathering at 2:00pm, speakers at 3:00pm, and reception from 4:00 to 5:00pm.\n\nArrangements are under the direction of the Conroy-Tully Walker Funeral Home of Portland.
