On Saturday, March 14, 1998 a tragic accident took our colleague, friend, mentor and brother Kevin Joseph Manion from us. Kevin was the husband and best friend of our colleague Mary and the loving father of Jared at Lakehead University and Hilary at the University of Ottawa.
Kevin's philosophy to teaching and to life is best summarised by this quotation attributed to Kevin himself:

"Our concern for our fellow man, while it may vary in degree, should, nevertheless, not be altered by factors such as relationship, age or position. We share our lives with others and through association withothers our lives are enriched. A person who is willing to risk being open with others and trusts her fellow man not only aids in the development of others but grows herself


we all loved kevin alot,he will never be replaced by another guitar player.An android is currently being constructed to fill his spot

Ian has asked that from now on that he be refferred to only as "Hot Haircut".We as a band support creativity in any outlet of our members and begrudgingly respect his wishes. we send our best to him and his life mate chris leboeuf
