I was so very saddened today to learn of Kevin's passing. However my memories of him are ones of pride and fondness. I worked with Kevin on his Senior Recital here at UCSC, and I remember him as one of the more professional, focused, intelligent and mature students I have worked with. In my every encounter with him, he was always friendly, polite, welcoming, gracious, humble, and dedicated to what he was working on. You can be so proud of the man Kevin was, as I was also.
