Brother-in-law to Michael Anderson (staff), husband to Pam, father of Emily, Luke and Bob. Proud Grandfather. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
In loving Memory of Kevin Costa (78 years) SJOC 1961.
St Joseph’s College and the St Joseph’s College Foundation are saddened at the passing of Kevin Costa (17-11-2022).
Kevin joined St Joseph’s as a student in 1955 as a boarder with his older brother Anthony.
Kevin has been a much-loved and respected member of the SJC community for many years and was instrumental in launching the SJC Foundation in 1995. He served as chair from 1999 – 2009 and remained on the committee until his passing retaining a great passion for our College.
Kevin was thrilled to receive a 25-year service award to the College and the Foundation at the Foundation’s 25-year celebration in November last year, with fellow long-serving committee members Dr Joe Virgona and Peter Rudd.
Kevin’s stories of his time at St Joseph’s, in particular as a boarder, are legendary and he attended all the reunions over many years with fellow boarders.
To Lorraine and Brad and the entire Costa family, the College extends its heartfelt sympathy.
He was a true friend of St Joseph’s who will be greatly missed by his fellow Old Collegians and by all of the members of his St Joseph’s family.
Rest in peace Kevin. ‘Take it easy’.
