My condolences to the Gresham family.
Kevin and I worked and sometimes "breaked" together at IDOT, but we've been out of contact for several years. I remember his being among the "grill masters" at get-togethers at the Wildlife Sanctuary. He was soft-spoken, and when I look at this photo I can almost hear his "snicker-laugh". So sorry for your loss.

Ah, the memories. Nothing can take those away. Good times growing up together. Hangin out at Farleys and roaming the "hood." His name will always bring a smile to my face.
