Kevin Garvey, Sr. is Kevin Garvey's father and Mapleton's former Chief of Police, who was hospitalized for hearing voices after the Departure. He is now on a personal mission.


Before the Sudden Departure[]

Based on his tattoos, Garvey is a Vietnam veteran who was part of the 173rd airborne battalion. After the war, Garvey could not fit in, fathered a son, and joined the French Foreign Legion, disappearing from Kevin's life for three years. [1]

Garvey later served as the Chief of Mapleton Police Department, alongside his son.

After the Sudden Departure[]


  • Kevin Sr. was not in Tom Perrotta's original novel, having been mentioned to be dead along with Kevin's mother. It is also never stated that Kevin's name is that of his father's.
