Covenant College professor Kevin Eames passed away on Thursday. 

Covenant College President Dr. J. Derek Halvorson issued the following statement. 

'It is with deep sorrow that I am writing to inform you that Prof. Kevin Eames of the psychology department died yesterday morning from complications following his recent open heart surgery. Prof. Eames had been in the cardiac intensive care unit since undergoing surgery two weeks ago.

"Prof. Eames has been a member of our faculty since 2003. He is 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 Prof. Eames' wife, Lisa, and for their daughters, Hillary and Hannah. It is a blessing to know that Prof. Eames is now united with his 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 pain for those left to mourn the loss of Prof. Eames. What a gift it is that we mourn not as those who have no hope."
