Kevin, born Feb. 11, 1960, passed away Aug. 12, 2020. Kevin came to Princeton from Gates-Chili High School near Rochester, N.Y. He played varsity football and won trophies for intramural heavyweight wrestling and shotput, but still found time to be house manager at Tiger Inn. He majored in electrical engineering and computer science.

Kevin promised to shave off his beard should Princeton vanquish Yale in the fall of 1981, and when victory came, he kept his promise to his gridiron teammates, who remember a “strong and silent” athlete, friend, and scholar.

Kevin’s engineering degree led to more than 25 years at Lockheed Martin in a variety of programs. He was proudest of his work as chief systems architect on programs for helicopters for critical search and rescue and for unmanned resupply. He was recognized as a Lockheed Martin Fellow, a distinction awarded to less than 1 percent of the technical staff.

Survivors include his wife of 32 years, Linda; their children, Scott, Chelsea, and Michael; granddaughter Chloe; and his parents Ronald and Marilyn. They are joined in sadness by the Class of 1982, who are proud to have had Kevin in our midst.
