Obituary for Kevin M. Hurley

August 18, 1969 – November 8, 2023
Cornwall, NY

Kevin M. Hurley, 54 of Cornwall, NY passed away on November 8, 2023 after a 14-month battle with pancreatic cancer. He died at home surrounded by the love of his family.

Kevin was born on August 18, 1969 to John and Elizabeth Hurley in Bronx, NY. After graduation from Washingtonville High School, he went on to graduate from Manhattan College in 1991.

After graduation, he started his first job at Fairchild Publishing in 1992 and continued for the next 31 years to move up in the field of magazine publishing with the likes of ABC, Disney, Conde Nast and at the time of his passing with Penske Media Corp (PMC) where he was the Senior Production Director.

Kevin met his wife Liz at Manhattan College. Married for 26 years they resided in the Bronx for over 16 years before buying a home in Cornwall 18 years ago.

Kevin and Liz have two incredible boys, Owen - 20 years old and Andrew -11 years old. The family also welcomed a very large fluffy Great Pyrenees, named Zoey almost two years ago.

Kevin is survived by his sisters: Kerry Dineen (Patrick) and Deirdre Ennis; Father-in-law: Alfred Wassler (Patti); brothers-in-law: Kevin Wassler (Carrie), Tim Wassler (Dana); and sister-in-law: Emily Wassler. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews: Connor, Rory and Brogan Dineen, Meaghan and Mackenzie Ennis, Kaitlyn, Sarah and Jack Wassler, Reese Wassler; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Kevin will be remembered by his very large group of friends and co-workers, who provided unwavering support and strength during his courageous battle. He was predeceased by his parents: John and Elizabeth; his mother-in-law: Mary Wassler; and his brother-in-law: James Ennis.

Thinking of all the things Kevin enjoyed doing is easy. He loved the outdoors: hiking, kayaking, geo-cashing and long walks with Zoey. He took great pride in landscaping his home and his ability to fix anything; cars, computers or things around the house.

A lifelong Yankee fan, he shared that love with family and friends. He logged more hours than anybody watching Motor Trend channel and loved old cars. He told the best or worst Dad jokes depending on who you asked. Kevin was your man if you needed anything researched. He was always a phone call away if anyone needed anything, our personal phone a friend. We know that is how he would want to be remembered.
