It’s a guess, but I think I first met Kevin probably 5+ years ago here on Meathenge. He was an attentive comment poster, usually had something pertinent to add or just to give 2 thumbs up. I quickly followed him to his own Seriously Good cooking blog. I hung out on there frequently, it was a welcome place full of all the meaty goodness. We actually spent some time on the phone late at night exchanging stories about both food and computer related technology. We’d been working in it for so long he actually got my joke about those pesky RLL drives versus the MFM ones. I knew our future wouldn’t last forever, early on he mentioned his internal organs weren’t as they should be. He’d be passing in the next handful of years, but not once did I ever notice that get in the way of living for today. Although he did say that spending time on the phone with me greatly cheered him up and enjoyed the laughter that didn’t come so easily. The feeling was mutual.
Earlier this year I noticed that his food blog fell silent, the wrong kind of silent. Well, today I found his blog gone and an entry on the internet announcing his passing on April 5th, 2012.
You were well loved and respected Kevin, I and surely everyone you came in to contact with wish you well in your journey and miss you dearly.
