Kevin was such a kind and thoughtful man.  His warm smile and reasurring manner will be missed so very much.

I will remember his pride and glow whenever his lovely family came to visit.  He was too young and vibrant to be gone.


My thoughts and prayers are with Kevin, his family and colleagues at this terrible time.

I'm deeply saddened and surprised by Kevin's death.  I always enjoyed his warm greetings.

My thoughts to his friends, family, and co-workers.

I'm truely saddened and surprised by Kevin's death.  He was always extremely helpful and a joy to work with. He will be sorely missed.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all Kevin's life has touched. 

What a terrible loss. I really enjoyed working with Kevin and will miss his easy smile, upbeat attitude, and especially his quick wit. My thoughts are with his friends and family.

Kevin was one of the first people to welcome me to Amherst College in early 2007.  He was the kind of warm, generous, and helpful colleague who made every day a little brighter for his coworkers.  My thoughts and sympathies go out to his family and office-mates.  He'll be greatly missed.

For many of us on campus, Kevin was gracious and professional support on the other end of an email or phone call.  For others, he was one of our campus's most gracious people to encounter in person -- even before we knew his name or that he was "that Kevin!"   My thoughts and wishes to his family and colleageus across campus.  I will miss him.

Kevin was a kind, friendly, upbeat, and gracious colleague. He will be missed by his co-workers throughout Converse Hall.

Kevin had such an upbeat way about him - always positive and open. He will truly be missed. My deepest sympathies go out to his family.

We will all miss Kevin's glad and gracious  spirit. He was an incredibly responsive colleague who helped make work a pleasure. I pray that his wife, Stacy, and his children receive the comfort and help they need.

I got to know Kevin through working out at the gym. What a classy, friendly guy! His sudden passing was a shock to me and many others. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.


What I will miss most about Kevin is his impish sense of humor. We got through many an interminable meeting by slinging quips around the table. I can't believe I won't see him again.

My heart goes out to his wife and children, and to all his family and friends. I hope the memory of the wonderful person he was helps light the dark days ahead.

I will miss Kevin's smile and wave of greeting at the gym. May his family find solace and support in each other and friends.

I will miss seeing Kevin's friendly smiles around campus and hearing his cheerful voice when I called for help.   My thoughts and prayers are with his family and colleagues. 

Kevin was so helpful and easy to work with -- always pleasant and friendly. I will miss seeing him around Converse Hall. My deepest condolences to his family.
