Many North Shore residents remember Kevin Joseph Smith Burke.

He was a member of the New Trier High School graduating Class of 2012, once a student at Wilmette’s St. Joseph’s preschool and later a pupil at St. Francis Xavier’s School there. 

Sadly, Burke died much too young at age 23. His heart just stopped beating July 10, 2017. No one knows why.
