My deepest condolences to your family on this sudden and tragic loss. The few times I had the privilege of meeting Kevin, it felt like just that, a privilege. I shared so many of the same thoughts and beliefs with Kevin via social media, and he was the 'real deal' in person. He always struck me as a kind-hearted, smart and gentle soul. I can only imagine the void you are all feeling right now. I find that keeping my departed love-ones close in my heart helps fill the gap of their physical absence. I hope you can find comfort in knowing he is with your parents, watching over and his spirit will live on through you forever. With love, hope and healing, Joanne Vecce xo

Kevin was a wonderful and loving close friend for 20 years. I don't believe that I'll ever get over his loss because he's been such a important part of my life and sobriety for all these years. I send lots of love to his family and certainly to all of our friends who knew and loved to Kevin. Putting the words together is quite difficult right now but I certainly wanted his family to know that he was a wonderful and close friend for so many years and I will miss him terribly which I already do. I pray for Kevin and I wish him well on his next Journey. I still can't gather my thoughts but mostly I wanted to let his family know that all of us out here love and will miss him terribly. You go Kevin you brought love and smiles to so many of us over the years we will miss you

My deepest condolences to the family. My name is Gloria Hancock and I just found out today that he had passed. I worked with Kevin for 14 years. He was a real friend, I loved him like a brother. May he rest in peace.

I just heard about Kevin's death and I wanted to tell his family that I'm so sorry for your loss. Your dear Kevin was nicknamed by me years ago as "Kevers" and he often said he loved that name. We became acquainted when we both worked for TERA/TENERA in Berkeley and have stayed friends - along with Gloria Hancock - all these many years. Kevers was one of the sweetest human beings I've ever known - open heart and open hand for any and all. I'm just thankful that I had a chance to know this sweet, sweet man - please know that he will live on in my heart as he will in yours. Warmly, Kay Rodrick kayrodrick@yahoo.com

For 27 years I saw Kevin regularly at Cal football games, men’s basketball and women’s basketball games (in the off season we regularly met for coffee and 2-3 hour conversations). For the last 12 years we sat together at women’s games, spending as much time chatting as we did watching the games. Besides sports we talked about music, TV, movies, travels, politics and family. Every year Kevin would go back to Hawaii to visit family. He spoke lovingly about the islands and his trips as well as about his three siblings. I briefly met his youngest sister but felt as if I knew his family quite well. When his oldest sister called me with the news about Kevin, she told me how often they had heard about me. I was deeply touched to know that Kevin spoke of me to his family. I’ll miss our running jokes. I’ll miss our email exchanges (I would always sign off with a Go Bears! But he always out did me with a GO BEARS!!!). I’ll miss comparing the era we grew up in with today. I’ll miss sharing observations about Cal players and coaches. I’ll miss our poking innocent fun at strangers from afar. I’ll miss our frank discussions on addiction and sharing stories about our youth and how we managed to survive. I’ll miss his rigorous honesty and his perspective and his compassion and his righteous indignation about some of the idiots in politicals. I'll miss his reliability, his story telling, our sharing of reminisces and his warmth, kindness, dignity and hatred of Stanfurd. I sometimes shared my writings with him and he always responded with compliments. Not everyone that I know does that. I was most touched after sending him my blog posts about a recent trip to New York. Twice he told me that my writing of that trip was so vivid he felt like he was there. As I mourn Kevin, I take great comfort and even joy in having had the pleasure of spending so much time with him. While I struggle with grief and the void his departure creates in my life, I know that in the heavens there is a star shining ever brighter now -- for he is within it. GO BEARS!!! Richard Hourula

Richard, I am using your photo in my video tribute to him. I remember you. Kevin spoke of you all the time. I was with my sister when she called you. We were going through Kevin's phone and I told her, 'we need to call him.' Thank you so much for your kind words and your friendship. Kevin loved his BEARS!! I share that love. I hope we can get together to share our stories of my brother. I would love to hear them! Take care. Hope to see you soon. Debbie (little sister)! GO BEARS!!
