Kevin Mark Koenigs 21 March 1950 - 4 February 2014

 

Kevin Mark Koenigs died of complications from cancer, midday February 4th, 2014, at the age of 63.  He passed quickly, quietly,
with dignity, without pain, and at home, as was his wish. His wife and partner of 35 years, Instructor Marsha McDonald, was by his side. 

 

He loved his wife, family, and friends, Dostoyevsky, Flaubert, the Ancient Greeks, his many, many students over the years, hardbop jazz, art, traveling, writing, and cats. A passionate teacher both here and abroad (South Korea), and published author (2011 Tenot Foundation Residency Award, France).

 

Kevin completed his Bachelors Degree in Comparative Literature at UWM - Milwaukee and his Master of Arts  & Doctoral Studies in Comparative Literature at the  University of California - Berkeley.  Until very recently taught at the ELS Center on Marquette University campus, and from October 2013 in the newly established ESL Program at MSOE.

 

As a man who chose to live a full life and was gifted with a good death, it is his  request that those who wish to honor his memory should endeavor to do,and to be given, the same. A celebration of his life is planned for Saturday, February 8th, at his Milwaukee home, from 12:00 to  4:00pm.
