It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing in Real Life of the man known in Second Life as Kev Sweetwater earlier this week..
Kev was known by many people within the BURNING MAN Community in Second Life as a member of the BURN2 Department of Mutant Vehicles and as the past leader of the Department of Public Works. Kev was a friend to us all, a dedicated Burner, and someone who was there with a ready joke or insightful statement on what it means to Burn.
Kev’s original application to BURN2 team says it all. In his words, “ To me the biggest part of my second life is my desire to volunteer to help other volunteers learn and grow more and have a enjoyable time...”
Kev was a man who loved the Playa and what the Burning community stands for. Please join us in celebrating his Second Life on Saturday, May 19th, 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. PDT on Burning Man- Deep Hole. At 7:30 p.m. PDT we will have a small burn in honor of Kev.

Like most viral videos, the clip popped up everywhere, and was comedically edited together with footage from TV shows such as “Star Trek” and “Lost.” It also lead Khil to gain the nickname, “Mr. Trololo,” which is based on the sounds he sings in the video.
“I love it,” Khil said. “People [are] doing parodies, having fun. It unites them.”
