In Memory of Kevin Michael Cleary (1962-2014)
PCSJ Webmaster 2008-2009, Secretary 2010-2013, Co-Chair 2014

On January 16 of 2014, Kevin Cleary passed away very suddenly after suffering from a major heart attack. Kevin served as the webmaster for PCSJ in 2008-2009, and then continued in the role of secretary for two terms from 2010 to 2013. During this time, Kevin had many duties at his own institution as in his role as President of the JALT organization. Even so, he continued to play an active role in PCSJ, attending technical meetings and voluteering to serve as Co-Chair from January 1st 2014.

Kevin was a kind, gentle man who cared greatly about his family, friends, colleagues, and students. He will be greatly missed by us all.
