Memories Timeline


  1. I was shocked to hear that we had lost Kevin. He has always been a ray of sunshine in my world of boardgaming. He greatly blessed us all with his presence and will be greatly missed.

  2. Shocking news. I gamed with Kevin many times over the years, including a weekend visit at his house from the Greenville Mafia. Rest in peace my friend.

  3. Shocking news. I gamed with Kevin many times over the years, including a weekend visit at his house from the Greenville Mafia. Rest in peace my friend.

  4. Kevin was one of my closest friends. He always stood by my family. He was an amazing man, a great person and family man. He gave friendship and support when we needed it an always had a kind word. His generosity in coming to visit each year was true giving. Heaven just got its best gamer. I will never forget him, his sweater, or his love. Nothing will replace the loss in our hearts. Thank you for all the joy you brought us over the last 15 years. Love always. Arthur & Kate

  5. Sincere condolences. Most of my interaction with Kevin was at the gaming conventions and many years ago at the Game Parlor in Chantilly. Kevin always had smile, a nice thing to say, and willing to sit, share, play whatever we were playing. Many nice moments with him and AJ playing together, too. Kevin will be missed.

  6. Kevin always brought a smile and friendship to the game table. My deepest sympathy to his family. Kevin is not lost–he is just separated from us by that veil of mystery we call Death. He thrives among loved ones who preceded him to Heaven, and his concern is for those who he left behind. Death can never defeat Love, can never diminish it or cause it to fade. Love is unbeatable. I can easily smile at the defeats Kevin handed me in games because Kevin was a gracious victor, always smiling and offering his hand to shake. God bless him and his family during this time of great sorrow.

  7. Every summer my Uncle Fred and Aunt Mary would bring Brian, Kevin and Carol to see us, often on the weekends. While the rest of the kids were outside playing, I remember that Kevin would always sit in the house and read. As a child, I never understood why he wasn’t that interested in “having fun” with the rest of us; riding bikes, walking through the woods, building forts or swimming in Lake Huron. It wasn’t until later that I realized that Kevin’s reading was his kind of fun and, by doing so, it placed him into his own peaceful world. Little did I know in my youth, as I watched Kevin glued to a book on those warm summer weekends, that his desire to constantly read and further educate himself were actions that placed him on the road to becoming a successful man. I am very shocked to hear of his passing and my thoughts and prayers go out to Yvonne, Alan, Katherine, my Aunt Mary, Brian and Carol; along with all of his other family and friends. R.I.P Kevin.

  8. Kevin was a great game player. I never came close to winning against him but I always walked away having enjoyed playing with him. A real gentleman.

  9. My deepest condolences Yvonne on your loss….I hope to see you again very soon…love you and will be keeping you and your children in my thoughts and prayers

  10. I was shocked to hear of Kevin’s passing. He was always a gentleman and gracious in both victory and defeat at the gaming table. We were scheduled to be together on Saturday, and we will be. Just perhaps in a better place.

  11. Dear Yvonne: I am very sorry to hear of your husband’s passing. Prayers for you and your family. God Bless Kevin. He is watching over you. Love, Mary Anderson

  12. I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Kevin. Yvonne and family, please accept my deepest condolences and may you be blessed with the memories you have of him. He will always be with you. Please take care of each other!

  13. Kevin was a great friend and I already miss him terribly. He was kind and generous and incredibly clever. Our family is thinking about yours, Yvonne, Katherine, and AJ. We are all so sorry for your loss.

  14. I will always treasure the memories of the good times we had with Kevin and Yvonne and the Wayne State/Notre Dame gang…and of all the times we played board games, music or just hung out. Kevin was one of the kindest, sweetest and most generous people I ever met, not to mention one of the most brilliant, and I am terribly saddened to hear of his passing. My deepest condolences to Yvonne and his children and family.

  15. I remember Kevin from the Search for Christian Maturity retreat group and the Passion Plays that we staged in the 1980s. A couple years ago I invited him to share our fandom of the Detroit Tigers at a friend’s house in McLean. Now I wish I had followed up and made him come. He was a good guy with never a cross word to say about anybody, or to anybody.

  16. So sorry for your loss. I thought Kevin was truly one of the nicest, finest fellows I ever met. I played games with him for many years. I will always remember him as an excellent player who never lost his composure, and who always tried to make sure everyone he played with had an enjoyable experience. A true class act.

  17. So sorry to hear of Kevin’s passing, he was a great guy. While I haven’t seen him in several years, I fondly remember the times I had to opportunity to play games with him. Always a great player, and more importantly, a great person. My condolences to the family.

  18. I met Kevin in Texas in 1996 when we both worked for Sprint. I had the pleasure to start working with him on a daily basis when he and his family moved to Reston. I worked closely with Kevin for over 12 years and we have kept in touch. I am so grateful to have worked with and to have become friends with such a brilliant, funny, curious, and thoughtful person. He was always interesting to talk to on any subject and loved sharing stories about his family. What has struck me most reflecting on Kevin this week was how much he loved helping people and his tremendous patience. Whether he was mentoring me and other technical neophytes, teaching us a new board game over lunch, testing his various game prototypes, or sharing a book he was reading, he loved to impart knowledge and share his intellect in a way that made complex things seem simple. Above all, he was a wonderful friend. He will be greatly missed. Heather and I send our deepest condolences to you.

  19. Its difficult to express just how much Kevin meant to me and all members of the gaming community. He was the rare combination of a great person, a great game player and a great person to play games with. He was unfailing selfless. He was always willing to try a new game, teach a game, play whatever someone else wanted to play. He always will be with us in spirit and hopefully we can keep his good graces in mind whenever we game and throughout life. He was an example to us all. His pleasant, calm demeanor in all situations will be sorely missed. Eternal thanks for touching my life and so many others. I hope a game table awaits you on the other side. Rest in peace.

  20. If you polled the gamers of WBC and asked them “which of your fellow gamers would you choose to live forever?” – Kevin would be at the top of the list. Thoughtful, calm, ever-helpful. Creative, analytical, and simply a pleasure to play with and against – all while setting an example as a father and raiser of new gamers that I strive to emulate. He leaves a big hole; it will be a long time indeed before his memory passes and the pleasure of his company and friendship fades. I am honoured to have known him.
