    Dear Sally and family, I am so sorry to hear that Kevin passed so unexpectedly. Kevin and I worked at LSI together in the late 80's and early 90's. Some of my sweetest, funniest and most seminal memories of my whole career were with him. He always had my back. Always. We filled his whole cubicle with balloons one year. I remember one business trip to Compaq computer and in a really serious meeting one of our coworkers said something incredibly ridiculous during his presentation and Kevin got the giggles and I could see his shoulders shaking. He tried to bury his face in his briefcase but it didn't work and he ran out of the room and as the door closed he burst out laughing BWAAHAAAHAAA😂. I was done. I laughed until my ribs hurt. Needless to say that was not our best moment with compaq but I'll remember it and remember Kevin as one of the kindest, most caring and nice people I've ever had the privilege to know. With much sympathy, Shelly Davis
