    So very sorry to hear of this.  I met Kevin once when my former friend at movie gallery, Linda, was working there and he was a really nice guy.  My prayers certainly go to the family and all of his friends and co-workers from the Lincoln News.

    Kevin, fishing will never be the same without you. I pray for your daughter and loved ones. You are and always will never be forgotten.

    The Lincoln News will survive. They have some great people up there working for them and the town loves their local paper. RIP Mr. Tengrenn.

  • Kevin was a true original; I was lucky enough to get to know him during our time working at the University of Maine’s Daily Maine Campus when we were in college, and he kept all of us in stitches with some of his off-the-cuff (and generally inappropriate) comments. While not a close friend — we never really touched base all that often — I was happy to see him each time we crossed paths in the following years. He never lost that edge, nor that passion for journalism done right. A sad day. 

  • Such a terrible loss, I got to know Kevin, when I was at The Katahdin Times, conversations with him always put a smile on my face…

    So sad for the family and for the community.  Losing Kevin is losing a very civic-minded individual who provided a great service to the community through the newspaper.  Kevin will be missed greatly.  Condolences to his family and to his newspaper family.
