My condolences go out to his wife, Monica, his extended family and friends.
Also, a big thanks to him for the time and energy he put into sharing such a vast
body of technical information and experience an all things synth.
May he rest in peace.

This was a big loss to the vintage synth community. He will be sadly missed.

My sincere condolences to Kevin's family & friends.

This is very sad news indeed and a very cruel untimely loss.

The Moog community have most definitely lost a very talented individual.

As a fellow synth tech, it is always a pleasure to learn and exchange new ideas and Kevin was a fountain of knowledge on the subject.
