On March 19th, 2022, our beloved Kevin Andrew Bonilla, loving son, brother, and friend passed away at the age of 31 on Copper Mountain in Colorado.
Kevin was born on September 6th, 1990, in Weston, Florida, where he grew up and attended Cypress Bay High School. He was a graduate of NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study and a 4-year runner for the varsity cross country and track teams. Kevin built a successful career in technology sales, living in San Francisco, New York City, and most recently Denver.
Kevin was loyal, loving, and had an unwavering commitment to his family and friends. He brightened the lives of those around him with genuine care, easygoing conversation, and unforgettable storytelling.
Kevin lived like he loved – to the absolute fullest. He reveled in the pleasures of a morning run, thrill of skiing, and adventure of hiking. He cherished exploring local culture wherever he lived, and traveled throughout the world, making sure to check out all the local brewskis. Kevin satisfied his passion for learning and intense curiosity by being a voracious reader, podcast listener, and pop culture guru. His compassion for others empowered him to give back to his local community and those less fortunate throughout his life. He was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit.
Kevin was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Bobby and Adele Daniels, and his paternal grandparents, Patricia and Bill Gould, and Paul Bonilla Sr. He is survived by his mother and father, Jayne and Rich, his brother and brother’s partner, Richie and Sofia, and his sister and sister’s fiancé, Katie and Mac. In 2021, Kevin met the love of his life, Sri Pernankil, who survives Kevin. Kevin is also survived by his extensive family of cousins, aunts, and uncles, along with countless friends.
A celebration of life will be held on Friday, March 25th, 2022, at Temple Emanuel on 51 Grape Street, Denver CO, 80220 at 1:30pm mountain time. Shiva will be held at Katie and Mac’s home on 2147 King Street, Denver CO, 80211 following the celebration of life. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Red Fern Animal Rescue, Girls on the Run Rockies, or Minds Matter Colorado in honor of Kevin.
