I've always admired Ken for his extensive knowledge in CORBA. Around mid 2009, we were told that he would be moving out of current role and hence he is transitioning. Little did we know then that the transition was since he was battling cancer. He gave a series of talks to our team. The presentations were done with utmost professionalism. Suddenly one day we learnt that he is no more. It made me feel sad and guilty for the fact that we drained him so much when he was in pain. At the same time, My admiration and respect for him has magnified many fold for the fact that he stayed with us on long calls patiently, explaining every bit, without getting worked up with our dumb questions. Its a pleasure having known such a person. Hats off !! May his soul rest in peace.

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.

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.

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.
