Kevin, it's true in your case when they say the good ones go too soon! I have always looked forward to you coming down the hall past my desk, the friendly smile, the cheery greeting, the sense of humour! It was a weekly running joke where I asked if you'd done any work that weekend.....there usually was a story to come out of it. I'll even miss the frights you used to give with the door! A loud bang would always make us look up! Thank you for always saying yes to working all our events, for the offer of fruit from your garden, for always eventually bringing the stapler back, and thank you for always fetching things from the security cupboard because I was too scared! :-) Above all thank you for being you, we are all luckier in life for having worked beside you. Mitre 10 will certainly not be the same without our Superhero Kevin around! To Ngaire & Family, sending all my love.

Kevin, you will be missed from Mitre 10. Always smiling, keen for a laugh and a story to share. Bringing in treats grown from your garden. Could always be relied on and got on with everyone. Hope you are catching fish in a happier place now.

Kevin you were a good friend and work colleuge, I am going to miss our chats we have at work, you'd call into my department looking to see whats on the staff sales table for goodies especially fertilizers for your garden. I enjoyed the sharing of photo's of the fish you caught of our gardens etc, we chat about boats and of motorbikes. You were a dear friend and i will never forget you and the kindness you showed.
You are at peace now and that is good. Good bye my friend till we meet again xxxx

Sorry to hear of Kevin's passing. Our connection with your family goes back to the Wallace Place Dairy days, and it was nice to reconnect with Kevin recently after he kept an eye out for our Dad (Wayne) through their work at Mitre 10. Our thoughts are with you at this sad time. Arohanui, Nicola, Phillipa, Michael and Bobbie Hodson.
