Wow.. Shit. I never met him myself but heard much about him via exploring in Seattle. May he continue exploring in the next chapter.

Can anyone somehow confirm that this isn't BS? Kevin is one of the most stand-up explorers I've ever had the privilege of meeting, and I know I'm out of touch when it comes to UER but I have no idea who "PorkRenegade" is.

I can understand your disbelief in that such a stand up guy might in a moment of despair make such a terrible decision, but I assure you it is true.

Wow, I have to say I'm kind of shocked to see this. I met him several times when he came out this way and he seemed like good people for sure. Just a nice guy. This is terrible.

Wow.. He was the first person I ever went exploring with. I remember meeting up with him when I was just 16. Him and vision. Riding the belt-o-vator in the flour mill. Exploring the military housing near the college. The UW steam tunnels.. I met up with him just last year to explore this little fertilizer plant thing up in Bellingham. I'd lost his number I had been meaning to contact him again.. I had no idea he suffered from depression. He always lived on the edge it seemed like he had no fear climbing up on scary looking ledges and looking over. I always looked up to him and admired his bravery and sense of adventure. I just can't believe it... I guess I am just fortunate to have gone on those adventures with him. Unfortunately I have finals tomorrow from 8am-5pm so I will miss the service but I will send flowers and my regards.

-Tom
