Kevin Alexander Leitch

Kevin was born on June 7, 1969 in the U.K. and immigrated with his adoptive parents to Western Canada at the age of 3 years. Passing through the school system he studied music at Trinity Western University. Generous in disposition; disciplined in mind. He excelled in the mastery of clarinet and saxophone. Kevin managed several of his own bands in and around Victoria, B.C. Travel was a focus for Kevin. He was Musical Director aboard several Cruise Ship lines. Kevin attained mid-90’s marks when re-training at Sprottshaw Community College.

Kevin’s faith in Jesus Christ – firm and unshakeable – was an indelible saving faith – hall-mark throughout his entire life. Mark this; in spite of multiple adversities!

You “fought the good fight of faith”, Kevin, Well done, son! Dad

  1. I was shocked and saddened to hear of Kevin’s premature passing. He was a true individual – sensitive and erudite- and a profoundly talented musician, and I can only imagine the great hole his passing leaves for his beloved father and others. I am glad to know that he had the opportunity to share his musical gifts with so many while travelling the world, and that his faith was a source of comfort and steadiness for him, even during adversity. Deepest condolences to Alec and his friends. Rest in peace, Kevin.

  2. It was a shock to learn of Kevin’s sudden passing, and for it to have happened as it did. For the short time that I knew him, my memories are of a well-spoken, well-read individual with whom one could have spirited conversations, covering a great many topics. I did think he was a man cut from another time but one thing is certain – he loved music, and seemed to have an affinity for big band sound. Knowing what else has transpired for the Leitch family this year, I send deepest condolence to his father. Kevin will be remembered by all those who knew him, and heard him play.

  3. I spent the better part of 20 plus years becoming a better musician at your side. Definitely loved you as a brother. You inspired me and pissed me off in equal measure, as only brothers can. I will remember you as eccentric; a man who belongs in another time, playing music from a golden era. Impeccably dressed; eloquent; I always saw you in black and white with your long trench coat, your cigarette, your horn bag as if you’d walked out of one of Dizzy Gillespie’s clubs after a long night’s gig. And yet your music was in full colour. If I could have been there I would have played ‘I can’t get started’ for you my friend. The Bunny Berrigan version of course 😉. My horn and I will find you again.
