    Dear Julie and family,
    I was deeply saddened to hear of Kevin’s passing. We went to high school together and then on to Sydney University to study medicine. The many comments in these tributes so clearly reflect the Kevin that I knew all those years ago . Always smiling and positive in outlook he was a true friend to everyone. It was a privilege to know Kevin in our formative years at school and university. At school along with three other friends we were a close group of five who socialised , laughed and played sport together.
    The Kevin that I knew all those years ago is so recognisable as the Kevin described on these pages. We lost touch after university when we went our different ways in the medical world but reading these wonderful tributes takes me back to those years of our school and university days and such fond memories of Kevin.
    Already then it was so evident that he was made of the right stuff. It was a privilege to have spent my formative years with Kevin.
    He was the best of the best and has been taken far too early.
    Please accept my heartfelt and sincerest condolences.

    Fond memories of Kevin as a young surgeon at Southend Hospital, England, in the early 1980s: hard-working, conscientious, but big-hearted, funny, and immensely popular with everyone.
    A sad loss.
