  • Remembering Kevin Granata

    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.
