Kevin Bryan Megginson died in his sleep at home on Harrison Avenue in Springs on Sept. 6, the day after his 35th birthday. The cause of death had not been determined, his family said.
Born on Sept. 5, 1978, at Stony Brook Hospital, he was a son of Frank Megginson and Julie Heffernan Megginson, who survive him. He grew up in Springs, graduating from Springs School and then East Hampton High School.
A certified hardwood flooring installer, sander, and finisher, Mr. Megginson worked in his family’s business, Frank the Floorman, for 20 years until recently, when he was employed as a carpenter at Sign Language in East Hampton. He was a member of the National Hardwood Flooring Association.
When not at work, Mr. Megginson enjoyed reading books on philosophy and other wide-ranging subject matter.
In 12-step programs such as Narcotics Anonymous, he was well-known and “esteemed as a leader who provided wisdom and support,” according to his family. Many who knew him from those circles expressed their condolences at a memorial held at his house on Sunday.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by a brother, Mark Megginson of Los Angeles, a sister, Kimberly Megginson of England, and numerous aunts, uncles, nephews, and cousins.
Memorial donations in his name have been suggested to Narcotics Anonymous at na.org.
