Kevingerarrd was the kind of friend we should all have. Even when you didnt want to run into him(it would be a minimum 15 minute conversation) you left smiling, though you knew you would now be late…He would do anything for a friend.. one of the people you could count on no matter what.. He would be the guy to call at 3am to bail you out of jail and not ask what you had done(i bet, i dont know from experience!) I was very fortunate to know him. Talking with other friends we all feel the same loss, we will all very much miss avoiding him!

This man brought me to silvias in harlem my first day in the area!!

He was an awesome tour guide and I think he gave TONS of Stevens students (and I’m sure plenty of other people) their first tours of NYC.
