Kevin H. Canter

Kevin H. Canter, 63 of Glouster passed away Tuesday January 12, 2021 at the O.S.U. Wexner Medical Center, Columbus.  Born March 30, 1957 in Nelsonville, he was the son of the late Willard “Wid” and Oneida Jane Midkiff Canter.  He was a 1975 graduate of Nelsonville-York High School where he was an all-star basketball player and was inducted into the Nelsonville-York High School Hall of Fame in 2019.  Kevin retired from the position of Nelsonville Fire Chief in 2004 and was a member of the former Nelsonville First Christian Church.  

Kevin was known for his quirky personality, witty sense of humor, and readiness to help anyone in need.  He had the gift of gab and never met a stranger.  He was an avid Michigan Wolverine fan since the age of 8 which proves without a doubt that we all have flaws but are deeply loved in spite of them.  Kevin loved watching football games regardless of what teams were playing.  He especially loved the Trimble Tomcats and Nelsonville-York Buckeyes.  

He is survived by a sister and brother-in-law, Susan and Rev. Jon T. Hanning; a niece (who was the “apple of his eye”), Sarah Jane (Jamie) Rollins; a special aunt, Nancy Dixon; special friends, Paul Kerr, Diane Cain, Stu Patton and Charmia Berwanger who he always said was his sister by another mother; Virgil “Coach” Grandy and his family, who he held in high regard throughout his life and considered them family; and numerous cousins and friends.

At Kevin’s request, a cremation has taken place and there will be no services observed.  Contributions in Kevin’s memory can be made to Nelsonville-York High School Athletic Department, 2 Buckeye Drive, Nelsonville, Ohio 45764 or Trimble Local School District Athletic Department, 1 Tomcat Drive, Glouster, Ohio 45732.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Morrison Funeral Chapel.  A message of comfort may be sent to the family at
