"So many things to miss, Little Brother. You've left such a legacy of love, kindness, and compassion. You would have been blown away yesterday by all the people who came to honor you. There were so many more who were unable to be with us. You left a lot of heavy hearts behind by leaving us much too soon. As I said yesterday, Kev, there will always be a place in my heart that says "Little Brother". I love you. I'll see you whenever."

"The world has lost a beautiful, kind, loving man who brought joy to so many people over the years.  He has been part of our family for nearly 60 years and it's hard to imagine a world without him.  I am so deeply saddened that our friend/brother left us too soon.  My deepest condolences to his family who I know loved him and who he loved and to all of his friends who considered him family.  Words can't express how much we will miss him.  We love you, Kevin."

"Kevin, my first love...I posted a picture of us as we were getting ready to go to your Junior Prom. Many years later, you made my 60th birthday special by taking me out to lunch and buying me a birthday cake. So grateful that we reconnected over the past few years. Rest in Peace my dear friend."

"Through 30 some odd years (but who’s counting… ;) Kevin has been a wonderful and trusted friend –  like a brother to me.

These are some memories of Kevin and things I will miss:

His easy laugh
His ready ear and honest opinion
His sagely advice
His funny and tactful way of letting me know I had done something dumb without making me feel stupid

Sticking with Dewar’s with a splash of water

Celebrating birthdays

Listening to jazz at the Knickerbocker

His late night computer help questions – not! ;)

His generosity

The political discussions we would have that went on for hours

I will miss these things and more, but most importantly I have been blessed to have known a man as thoughtful, ethical, kind, classy, and wise as Kevin. I will carry his memories and lessons in honor of him, sharing them and in so doing, Kevin’s spirit will live on."

This tribute was added by D'Anna and Karim Lachheb on 2nd June 2017

"My friend Kevin McAward's compassionate heart and limitless generosity not only helped save my life and revived my hope in the human race, but also taught me that it doesn't matter where one comes from, what creed, gender, culture or what tendency one may subscribe to in life in any part of this troubled but magically beautiful planet we all reluctantly share......we all as species have more in common with one another than we may think we do.
That a single act of kindness, a compassionate gesture, a feeling of solidarity toward those who suffer, and the forgotten ones among us can indeed not only transcend differences and do away with strife and prejudice, but also unite the human species and elevate it to a higher and much more universal level of consciousness and thus lead humanity to pioneer a new history free of war, greed, hatred and that deadly monster we call prejudice which sadly keeps most humans unable to truly know and have love and respect for each other. Kevin was a wonderful and rare example of a true friend.
With this, D'Anna & I offer a wreath of gratitude and a prayer for salvation and eternal love for his luminous, loving and forever undying spirit.
We'll always be thankful for the gift of his friendship and hold him in loving memory.
With deepest respect and Love and comfort to all of his loved ones"

"Kevin passed early Sunday morning, May 21st at Lenox Hill Hospital. He battled a number of serious medical issues that in the end he did not have the strength to overcome. I will sorely miss my friend of almost 60 years. He was the most giving and generous person I knew, beloved by family and many, many friends. Rest in Peace, Kevin."
