I was very saddened when I got the message that we lost Kevin. He was one of the very finest friends I ever had. I can never thank him enough for all the knowledge I acquired while being a part of assisting him in starting up Hudson Technologies. Everything from flying lessons, to the flying trips to all the Chemical Plants in Louisiana & East Texas, to all the adventures we had building all those stainless steel machines along with the projects on all the Navy Basis around the country. Especially that one weekend when we were stuck at Norfolk Naval Station and actually attended Sunday Mass in the Chapel on the Aircraft Carrier Dwight D Eisenhauer. I wouldn't trade the time spent with Kevin, his family & friends for anything ever. For I now know he is simply up there above the clouds having a cool one with Walt Lesko.

I tell people Hudson saved the world. Kevin didn't just start a company he started an industry. Within a few years the ozone layer threat was contained. My condolences to the family.

I am saddened by the sudden loss of Kevin. I know his family well and know that he was a great brother and son to his family. Another great loss far too soon. My condolences to the Zugibe and extended family

I worked at Hudson for 18 years and got to know Kevin real well. He was funny, sometimes all business, and a brilliant man. I missed the bantering over the computer and will really miss this man. RIP little big man. Heaven sure gained an angel.

Although its been years since I last saw Kevin, I was deeply saddened today when I was told he had passed. I have many memories of Kevin and I paling around in middle school and high school, playing drums in the band together and leaving messes in his dads workshop after collaborating on school projects. He was a good friend and kind soul. I will remember him in my prayers. I am sorry for your loss.

Our dear, happy, beautiful spirit of a neighbor will be greatly missed. It was a joy to see Kevin daily, and a pleasure to view he and Mauras sidewalk-garden each season. Such a tragic loss. Condolences and heart-felt sympathy.

I havent seen Kevin in quite some time but we were friends beginning in elementary school. I remember how much fun he had telling others of his pet skunk. Most not realizing his dad, THE Rockland Medical Examiner deftly removed the glands that produce the signature skunk aroma. We both attended college at RIT and I saw him transform into the young executive who would later found an incredibly successful business. A very special guy, very special. The world is worse off today
