MEDINA-- Kevin Fox was the last of the Brunswick teens to pass away from a crash that killed three other teens. 

On Saturday, he was laid to rest.    His friends, family and classmates turned out by the hundreds to remember his life, and his legacy. 

In the 18 years that he lived, Kevin Fox made a forever lasting impression in those that he met.  "He was such a great kid, he was always there for me" said Kevin's childhood friend, Joey Sciria. 

"My dearest baby brother I love you so very much, my heart is broken right now," his sister, Colleen prepared a final letter to her brother that she read at the service. 

She, his brother and uncle all spoke about the loss, and the love the family has experienced since his passing.

"They never knew how many people he touched and in the end how many people he'd save," said his uncle, Dave Gilland. 

Kevin's teammates from his hockey and rugby teams were there too, just as they say, he'd always been for them.  Not just to say goodbye, but to stand behind his parents, and siblings.

Mihai Untea said he didn't know Kevin well but he had a message for the family.  "I wish them nothing but peace and that they recover from this unimaginable loss," Untea. 

Even in their grief, they took time to remember and reflect on 16-year-old Lexi Poerner, the love of Kevin's life.  She was laid to rest on Friday.  "We are so thankful they found each other and together hand in hand they are in heaven," Gilland. 

The pain they felt was eased by the relief they held in knowing that in his death Kevin, an organ donor, had given the gift of time and a second chance at life.

"He's my hero, I look up to him, my little brother saved eight lives," Sean Fox.
