Not sure what to say?

Mr. Kessinger, as I always referred to him, was so good to me. I have a lot of fond childhood memories with he and Mrs. Kessinger. Their daughter, Linda, was my best friend since we met in kindergarden. We even lived on the same street growing up. I think we spent the night at each others houses at least once a month growing up and Dot and Paul were always like second parents to me. They treated me as part of their family. He will be missed so much! My prayers go out to the family.

Dr. Kessinger has gone to his reward. There he will be greeted by his former student, Kevin McNamara (Class of 1965), recently departed. Kevin was very fond of Dr. Kessinger; I, therefore, came to know and admire him also.
He now rests in peace. My condolences to his family and members of the Geology department that he served so well.

I was a student of Dr. Kessinger in his Geology 102 and 102 courses and can still remember some of his comments. He was a good instructor and much more important he was a good person. I appreciate what he tried to instill in me and the other students.
