Kev will be deeply missed! He was an inspiration to generations of climbers and trekkers and will continue to be forever.
His personal touch was what made his stories and guidebooks so heartwarming and useful. I remember emailing him about a particular trek that I was embarking on a few years back that I intended to do in the opposite direction for which the guidebook was written. He immediately emailed me back and said that all I needed to do was walk backwards and I would still be able to use his book!!!
His sense of humor may have been his greatest attribute!
