    It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Kevan passed away earlier this morning.
    I will post his funeral details later when they are finalised.

    ... and you certainly packed a lot in to the last two!

    We feel privileged to have known you Kevan.
    Your chipper smile and happy face will never be forgotten.
    Our thoughts and condolences are with your friends and family especially Claire, Alex, Abbie, Lucy and little "KJ"

    Rest in peace Kevan.

    I met you a few times, but your smile was infectious.

    A truly nice guy.

    It was inevitable but it is still a shock.
    I felt like I new him even though it was only contact through the forums.

    My thoughts go out to his family.

    RIP Kevan.

    Very sad news indeed. Our thoughts are with all his friends and family.

    It feels appropriate to make a donation to MNDA in Kevans memory but out of respect to his family Terry would you please check that that is okay?

    R.I.P. Kevan zed owners will never forget you... Nor I suspect anyone else who had the privilege to know you.

    I don't usually come on this sight much these days.
    But It would appear that Canman (Kevan) has lost his fight with MND
    RIP Kev you will be sadly missed by me and a lot of others

    Such sad news.
    I met Kevan on a couple of occasions and he was a guy you just wanted as a friend.
    Sincere condolences to his loved one's.
    It just put's anything we feel are problems into true perspective....
    Rest well Kevan.
