March 6, 1990 – March 31, 2012
Kevin Scott Majeski passed away on Saturday, March 31, 2012 at the age of 22 years.
Kevin was born and raised in Calgary by his mother Alison, until her death when he was 5, and then by his grandparents Zyg and Gail Majeski. He attended Sam Livingston Elementary, and West Island College, graduating with Great Distinction. Following one year of study at the University of Calgary, he moved to New York to pursue a degree in classical voice at the Manhattan School of Music with esteemed voice teacher Joan Patenaude-Yarnell. Kevin began singing and playing the piano at the age of 6, and went on to become an accomplished musician. His passion for music, along with his amazing baritone voice, led to his success in numerous competitions, and performances both locally and provincially. In recent years Kevin began composing music and participated in summer opera programs in Italy and the Banff School of Fine Arts. Kevin was a great guy to be around, and was loved by so many people in Calgary and New York. His sense of humor always filled a room. He loved to ski, hike, climb, play video games and hang out with friends and his sister Josie. He will be dearly missed by his family, but loved forever. A special thank you to Kevin’s close friend Claire Gellert and her family in Long Island who gave him a home away from home.
Kevin is survived by grandparents/guardians Zyg and Gail Majeski, sister Josie Majeski, uncle Trevor Majeski, father Dillon Wakefield, and paternal grandmother Ann Craig as well as a large extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was predeceased by his mother Alison Majeski in 1995.
