Rest in Peace Kevin. I had never known you. It would be disingenuous of me as a person to feign so, but you meant a lot to those who did, and that is what matters here. You will be missed.  You made a great contribution to the world with your music, thank you very much for that.
Yes, I should be careful to mention that I did not know Kevin, but know people who did know him fairly intimately. The point is that his friends and family will miss him greatly, and to a lesser degree, so will those touched by his music.
