"Pink Floyd Fanatic" posted here ... so I felt it an appopriate place
to express our sympathy.

Kevin was never one to hold back with his opinions--we all got a kick
out of him and appreciated his enthusiasm.

I saw him in the station for Renegade last month.  He was always
friendly/social but umm, a bit of a character so I kept
conversations to a min.  Probably a lesson to be learned somewhere
in there.  Best wishes to his family and loved ones.

That's really sad.  And odd -- I was just thinking of Kevin this morning
over my bowl of cereal.  Was thinking about that 250ft version of The Voyage
he was going to build after he won the lottery.  I guess we'll never see
that coaster now.  :-(

Paula, thanks for posting.  You're a class act.  If and when the Lord calls
me, if you could do me the same honour, that would be great (I'm pretty sure
no one else will bother.)

How sad.  He was certainly a unique person, and we made fun of him, but
such an early death is always a shame.  Maybe in the afterlife he'll get
to ride an Intamin Plug-and-Play as much as he likes.

Wow. This is so sad. I haven't talked with him recently and am now
regretful.
Kevin was one of the few RRCers I actually knew. We hung out for hours
at some long-ago coaster event (SRM or the Hershey Con) and sometimes
would talk on the phone long distance for hours about coasters, God,
and Christian punk rock.
Kevin was a different character, very sociable, gracious and friendly.
We often spoke of our acceptance of and love for the Lord Jesus
Christ.
In a way, this is a celebration. Kevin is now riding the king of
coasters...with the King Of Kings.

Sorry, but the cynical side of me keeps waiting to see a post from Rastus,
blasting Kevin for riding coasters with a heart condition.

Five days shy of 45.  Such a shame.  My condolences to his family
and friends.

There's no telling if it would've helped, but if you have any sort
of family history of heart problems (as I do), it's never too early
to get your cholesterol(*) and other factors checked.  (So far,
knock on Formica, I'm in good shape, but I don't take it for granted.)

(*) And goodness knows, the park-hopping lifestyle isn't one conducive
to healthy eating habits...

This is a thread to remember our fellow RRCer and coaster enthusiast,
Kevin Dreyling.  Out of respect for his family and friends, let's try
our best to keep it that way.

RIP Kevin Dreyling

I always thought of Kevin as a little strange but nontheless
enthusiastic.  I don't think there could ever be a woodie big enough
or wild enough as given in his comments for more after two of his
favorites were built and he got to ride them.

Kevin, I hope all your dreams are fulfilled in heaven.
RIP my friend.
Chuck

I was sort of responding to both of your posts.  Sorry for the
confusion.
