Please post the following:

I was very shocked, shaken and saddened when I heard of Kevin's death
last Monday.
Many of us here at Georgia Tech were particularly shocked because we
had just seen Kevin on April 6th.
We invited him to campus to make a presentation on his work related
to musculoskeletal modeling and lifting.
Craig Wyvill, a collaborator of mine in GTRI, paid for his trip and
Boris Prilutsky, Minoru Shinohara and myself met with Kevin for some
time after his talk to discuss possible collaborations. He gave, as
usual, a very interesting presentation.

While I did not know Kevin well I did know his work and discussed
this with him many times at ASB meeting etc. He also seemed to strike
the very important balance between family and work. During his visit
we even discussed his coaching his kids. A great guy, well respected
by his peers, a strong contributor to his profession, but most
important of all, loved by his family. He will be missed.
