Friends of recently deceased Westport man place Christmas tree in front of home, ask public for help in decorating it

The Westport community is looking for the public’s help to brighten Christmas for the family of a man who recently passed away.

Kevin Sousa passed away from a heart attack Monday leaving his family and friends devastated during the holiday season. Kevin was well known in town and was a fixture pulling his truck at the Westport Fair. He also was good for a laugh. What he cared most about though was his sons Owen and Ryan and his wife Katie. Now the community is trying to brighten their spirits during this difficult time and you can be a part of it.

Due to COVID-19, options can be limited, but friends of Kevin came up with an idea that is both beautiful and heartwarming.

A Christmas tree in memory of Kevin has been placed in front of his home at 12 Sodom Road. Everyone who knew Kevin, is invited to place an ornament on the tree in his memory.

The aim is to bring some light to his family during this dark and difficult time.

Don Felizberto posted on Facebook thanking those involved in getting the tree in front of the home and how those involved are trying to help.

“Kevin was loved by so many. It would be great for his two boys, Owen & Ryan, and wife Katie to experience something positive from those who cared about Kevin and know the love he has for his family. I know tonight Katie is surrounded by those who’s lives Kevin touched. Owen & Ryan would benefit from seeing how many of us knew and loved their father. I would like to personally thank Corey Cabral, Kevin Almeida, the great folks at Distinctive Auto Body Refinishing & Sales for donating a tree & Signature Signs for donating the sign. I sincerely thank you.”
