    Ken, everyday, when I find something interesting, I reach for the phone or email to discuss it with you.  Then I remember you're not here anymore.  I really miss you.

    I worked closely with Ken from 1983 through 1989 at BNR, Ann Arbor. In addition to being one of the smartest people I have ever met, he was a completely unflappable friend, someone who always had something fascinating  to talk about. He's the first person I knew who had a complete Star Trek collection, taped off the air to his VCR. He let me drive his Mustang GT 105 mph once, out in upstate NY someplace, on the way back from a David Parnas class in Canada. Mostly I owe him my software career, his mentoring-by-example was a very great help and a big influence on my own life, including my later teaching and rationalist outlook. I remember you, Ken, with fondness.
    ps. I changed my name from Skip Chapen in 1996, for his friends from the BNR days who don't recognize me.

    Even though I met Ken only once in person when we were at Sun, and corresponded with him through email only a few times, Ken made an impression on me. The news of his passing has saddened me greatly.
    May he rest in peace.
    My thoughts are with his family.

    I extend my condolences to the family of Kenneth Cavanaugh. I am from Michigan. I have the only kidney cancer support  group. I do correspond with adults who are in stage 4 RCC. I am sorry I was not able to correspond with Ken during his fight. I have extended my condolences on the obituary notice. I wish we could really eradicate this disease real soon. I belong to Action to Cure Kidney Cancer(ACKC.org). A massive campaign is underway to raise monies for research. This month too Childhood Cancer Awareness Month I hope millions can be raised. May the family of Mr. Cavanaugh be strong and help us raise funds for more research. Prof. Frank Friedman,Flint, Mi.

    Felt very sad when I heard the news. Ken is an amazing person, great expert on CORBA, very calm and easy to approach person. Ken will always be remembered.

    My deepest sympathies. I came to know about this only now.

    Ken was my lead at Sun Microsystems, He was one of the finest people that I have ever met and have learnt a lot from him. We really miss him.

    No words can express the journey and what you've been through as a family. Know that you're loved and that Ken has started a new beautiful journey. May light and love surround you and Ian in your time of grief.
    Much love,Mollee and Ezra

    Its really a sad day for me to hear this news. I worked with Ken for about 4 months on CORBA. Throughout 4 months , I had been admiring his interest in the subject and dedication to work , and above all great patience to document everything. I learnt a lot from him . He thought me many key concepts of Java as I am a beginner and also thought me effective ways of documenting. He had been a great mentor to me.

    He always used to talk about Ian and his educational progress.
    Ken will always be remembered.

    Felt very sad when I heard the news. I didn't work much with Ken and had interacted with him only through e-mails. I can never forget him since he had helped me solve a very critical customer issue 2 years back.

    May his soul rest in peace..
