Dr. Christopher McNevin
Dr. Christopher Brian McNevin, “Doc,” age 78, died on Friday, Nov. 22, of pneumonia.
Chris was born in 1935 in Brooklyn, N.Y. He moved to Somerset, Ky. in 1962 to buy a Chiropractic practice and raise a family. For 52 years he provided help and healing to many patients — always leading with his heart and even making house calls. His enthusiasm for life, knowledge of the healing arts, respect and compassion for others, and generosity were a gift to all who knew him. He could often be heard whistling down the hallway of his Chiropractic clinic on College Street.
Chris served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps for 3 years in the Neuro Psychiatric Division in Germany, and received an honorable discharge. 
He later attended Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa, graduating with a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree in 1961.
Chris was passionate about health, sailing, and preserving the environment. His friendly and charismatic personality inspired others to do their best. He loved nature, swimming, gardening, cooking, reading, and classical music. He took great pride in his family, hard work, and a job well done, and he will be greatly missed.
A proud and loving father and grandfather, Chris is survived by his six children, Jodyanne Greenlee, Christopher McNevin, Dr. James McNevin, Dr. Michael McNevin, Jennifer McNevin, and Erin McNevin; and 13 grandchildren. 
Chris was a member of Somerset First Christian Church. 
His family is holding a celebration of his life there on Saturday, March 29, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. 
In lieu of flowers, they request memorial contributions be sent to: Finding Freedom through Friendship, 1781 Eastwood Drive, Lexington, Ky., 40502:
