Daily Press-Tech's Connor and Kevin Kish persevere through heartache

Connor and Kevin Kish don’t remember any unique family rituals on Father’s Day. There were no exotic vacations or expensive gifts. Instead, that day was often like so many other summer days for the Kish family, and Connor and Kevin cherish those memories.

If Connor and Kevin were playing in a Little League game on Father’s Day in their native Oceanside, Calif., Joe Kish was there coaching his identical twin boys, mom Shannon Kish would work the snack bar and maybe an aunt, uncle or cousin or two would show up to watch.

Sports represented an ever-present galvanizer for the Kish family — even in the darkest of days.
