I'm very sorry to hear of your loss.
I was fortunate enough to have been able to meet Kevin and a few others at the map room when I was in Chicago for business.

After spending an evening with him, I can honestly say that he loved his family and life very much. His loss is felt by all of us (regardless of knowing him personally or through the connect that we all share here on HBT) because he was in my estimation a very kind and caring person. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to share a few beers and a lot of humor. You and your family will be in my prayers.

Wow, there aren't words...

I will be proud to brew a beer in his honor, it's the best way I can think of to honor a fellow brewer.

I also had the pleasure of meeting and having a beer with Kevin. He was just as helpful and friendly in person as he was on the forum. My condolences to you and your family, he will be missed.

I'm working as a pro now, but that doesn't mean I'm not still homebrewing. I'm going to see if I can homebrew at work as a way to develop new recipes.

Laura, I feel a special loss. Kevin was to say the least...persistent with his quest to brew better beer. That quest included his gentle, diligent prodding for me to accept beer from him to sample and offer feedback. I didn't know Kevin at the time and consuming a homemade beverage from a stranger can carry some risk. Eventually I agreed and am glad I did. Over the course of a few months, he continued to send me his latest attempts and I can say with all candor that he became an excellent brewer.

From what I know of our conversations, I believe Kevin loved life and loved his family. For you and your children, I offer my sincerest condolences.

God bless.
