The Capital Sports Report is mourning the loss of Kevin Tuno, who passed away last night. No age was provided.

An official cause of death has not been announced yet. However, in recent months, he had been battling cancer.

He was a photographer for our publication since 2012. Since coming on board, Mr. Tuno would be a photographer for Philadelphia Soul contests over the past several years at the Wells Fargo Center and training camp this last March in Moorestown, N.J.

He was the photographer for the 2012 American Conference Championship game when the Soul defeated the Jacksonville Sharks to advance to the ArenaBowl. When he wasn’t shooting the Soul, he would shoot numerous NHRA Drag Racing events, both at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J. and Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pa.

His last NHRA event was at the 2014 NHRA Toyota Summernationals in Englishtown. When he was there on the Friday of the event, NHRA Public Relations Manager Chris Lawyer banged his head on the TV set in the media center, and Mr. Tuno was the first one to check on him, before NHRA officials were able to help out.

His shining moment was when he covered the 2012 Heisman Trophy ceremony in New York City with Publisher Anthony Caruso III. He enjoyed covering that event – and would talk about it for months afterwards.

The last time that Mr. Tuno would cover an event with us would be at the Boardwalk Bowl, featuring the Soul and the now defunct Las Vegas Outlaws, in Atlantic City on May 30th.

This is a great loss to the publication. He knew many of the staff members.

When Kevin wasn’t a photographer for us, he was the Director of the Burlington County Office of Emergency Management in Westampton, NJ. He took office in 1999 and worked there until his passing.

Prior to this appointment, he worked in the 911 Call Center, also in the same building as OEM, and also had numerous roles as a firefighter in Burlington when he was younger.

Mr. Tuno has been dealing with cancer since August, and he told me that he would like to get back to shooting events once he beat it. But, unfortunately, that would not be the case.

He was a great man, who did so much for others, and The Capital Sports Report – and those on the staff – are better from knowing him. RIP Mr. Tuno. You will definitely be missed.
