Kevin and I met when we both attended Washington State University. In the late 90's and early 80's. I think we were a lot alike. Among other things, we loved skiing, both snow and water. Somehow, I still have his water ski. And he still has my weight set. There were many adventures, best left in the past. It was a proud day when Kevin asked me to stand up with him, when he and Thelma exchanged wedding vows. There was a small room behind the front of the church. All the groomsmen, Kevin, and the pastor met there just before the start of the wedding. Someone had conveniently left a bottle of Jack Daniels and shot glasses in a cabinet. We all shared a toast to Kev, including the pastor. It was a great day! Then there were dinner's at Kevin and Thelma's house in Renton. Making fun of them as we walked through the empty Living and Dining room. Back to the kitchen and family room. The only ones furnished. They were starting there and working their way out with furniture. Kev always had a smile! I was so sorry to hear that he had passed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kevin and his family and friends.

I met Kevin in 1976 and began an extraordinary journey that continues to shape who I am today. We married in 1982 and in 1991 welcomed our greatest blessing, our son, Jordan Beck. In 1998, our lives moved in different directions though we still enjoyed many memories together - cheering Jordan on when he played soccer, basketball & baseball; sharing in Jordan’s birthday celebrations; being proud parents at Jordan’s high school and college graduations are a few of the highlights joyfully shared together. Kevin loved skiing, tennis and baseball and it was like watching poetry in motion whenever he partook in those sports. Along the road of life, Kevin made many wonderful friends that remained very precious to him. During the latter years, Kevin fought a brave and valiant battle with Huntington’s Disease, but even when I last saw him, it was undeniable that he still retained the heart, intelligence and strength that were his essence. They say that one’s life isn’t measure in years but in impact and Kevin’s impact on those who knew and loved him was enormous. Puget Sound Energy for whom Kevin worked for from 1980 until his retirement nearly forty years later was also a great sources of joy for Kevin. His dedication to his son, Jordan Beck is evident in the extraordinary young man that Jordan is today. Terminal illness spanning over a decade is never easy and I want to thank our dear families and friends for making the journey one filled with support and love. Kevin made me a better person in countless ways and for that, I will always be most grateful. Godspeed dear Kevin, until we meet again. With love and respect, Thelma

Kevin and I played together on a softball team in early to mid 80's. He was a great guy, soft spoken and fun to be around. We had a lot of fun on that team, both on and off the field. I am saddened to hear of his passing, and my thoughts go out to his family.
