It is with great sorrow Covenant College announces that Dr. Kevin Eames died this morning from complications following his recent open heart surgery. Kevin had been in the cardiac intensive care unit since undergoing surgery two weeks ago.

Kevin had been a member of our faculty, in the Department of Psychology, since 2003. He was cherished by students, faculty, and staff alike for his outstanding teaching, his facility with assessment, his unwavering commitment to the college’s mission, his courageous and thoughtful engagement with challenging topics, his constant good cheer, and his faithful friendship and support.

Please pray for Kevin’s wife, Lisa, and for their daughters, Hillary and Hannah. It is a blessing to know that Kevin is now united with our Savior, that he suffers no more, and that he has also been reunited with his son, Daniel, who went to be with the Lord almost six years ago. Nevertheless, there is a lot of sorrow for his family and the Covenant College community as we mourn his passing.

We will provide updates regarding memorial services as they become available.
