Kenneth Kjaerbye

17 May 1966 - 27 January 2013
 

Kære Camilla og børn. Jeg er frygteligt ked af, at I har mistet Kenneth. Det er nok ikke muligt at gøre sig begreb om, hvad det vil sige, hvad det gør ved én og ens måde at se verden på før end man selv har prøvet et tab af denne dybde. Da jeg læste om at "en dansker var omkommet" og hørte, at han hed Kenneth Kjærbye og var på vej til IBM-konference, var det som en blanding af et frygteligt mareridt og et flash-back: for det var jo netop på en sådan tur, at rigtigt kom til at lære Kenneth at kende. En skriver "Quiet Gentleman" hvilket er utroligt rammende for hans ydre facon. Men hold da op, nogle kapaciteter og ressourcer og en empati han gemte på - og gik så stille med dørene omkring. Tænker tit på ham og derfor ikke mindst på jer. Føler så meget med jer og håber inderligt, at I - med tiden - en dag igen vil registrere at det gode i verden omkring jer og mindes alt det gode Kenneth gav til alle os. Min dybeste medfølelse.

Kenneth: a Good Man and fine Danish last name too!

Stephen Kjaerbye 1 April, 2013

Kære Kenneth, tak fordi du valgte at være min sparringspartner gennem næsten 4 år. Du var altid parat med hjælp og vejledning ved karriere - samt private spørgsmål. Hvordan kommer jeg så videre herfra? Du efterlader et stort tomt hul hos mig, som ikke kan fyldes ud. Mine tanker går til din familie, der betød alt for dig. Vi ses på den anden side. M.Y. Dorte

As it is impossible for me to reach out to everyone personally, I wish to thank you all so much for the overwhelming support and the vast amount of flowers and messages that my children and I have received, after my husband Kenneth Kjærbye was tragically taken from us at a motorcycle accident in Florida USA. A special thank you to our family and friends whom, from the day of our loss, have been there for us in every way imaginable. To our places of work, Topdanmark and Lån og Spar Bank for help and support. To Thomas Lindberg and all the IBM Community members in the world, for the help and the numerous beautiful words and thoughts, that have been shared from the whole world on the remembrance page //ourmemoryof.com/kennethKjaerbye – and to Paul Moony for making it happen. A warm thanks to the teachers at Maglehøjskolen and the staff at Klub Ørnebjerg for outstanding help and support for our children and last but not least to Michael Jensen, Ølstykke Funeral home whose help and support I cannot find the words for. A big and heartfelt thank you to all who participated in Kenneth’s funeral Friday 22nd February and for all the beautiful flowers. To Jette from CWC who played the bagpipes and Vicar Charlotte Tirsbæk Ustrup, who listened to us and made sure our farewell to Kenneth was filled with love and memories. Live for life and love – thank you very much Camilla Nørlund Kjærbye

Camilla ørlund Kjærbye 2 March, 2013

Da det er umuligt for mig, at nå ud til alle vil jeg her igennem sige hjertelig tak, for den overvældende støtte og de utrolig mange blomster og hilsener, der er strømmet ind til mig og mine børn, efter min mand Kenneth Kjærbye blev revet væk fra os ved en motorcykelulykke i Florida USA. En særlig tak til vores familie og venner, der fra første færd har været der for os på alle tænkelige måder. Til vores arbejdspladser, Topdanmark og Lån og Spar Bank, for hjælp og støtte. Til Thomas Lindberg og alle IBM community medlemmer i hele verden, for hjælp og de mange smukke ord og tanker, der er strømmet ind fra hele verden på mindesiden //ourmemoryof.com/kennethKjaerbye - til Paul Moony for at gøre det muligt. Til lærerne på Maglehøjskolen og personalet i Klub Ørnebjerg for enestående hjælp og støtte til vores børn og ikke mindst til Michael Jensen Ølstykke bedemandsforretning, hvis hjælp og støtte der slet ikke findes ord for. En stor og dybfølt tak til alle der deltog i Kenneths bisættelse fredag den 22. februar og de utrolig mange smukke blomster. Til Jette fra CWC der spillede sækkepibe og sognepræst Charlotte Tirsbæk Ustrup, der lyttede til os og sørgede for at vores afsked med Kenneth var fyldt med kærlighed og i hans ånd. Lev for livet og kærligheden - af hjertet tak Camilla Nørlund Kjærbye

Camilla Nørlund Kjærbye 2 March, 2013

Vores tanker gar til Camilla og bornene, du tog herfra alt for tidligt, har haft mange sjove timer sammen i Clan Rose og bandets ture til Belgien og Scotland, du var altid en god ven, korte hele vejen til Perth fra Aberdeen for at hente os da vi endte det forkerte sted og ikke kunne komme tilbage til Aberdeen, der var aldrig noget der var et problem, du var altid parat til at give en hjalpende hand. R.I.P. Kenneth

Kenneth(KEK)!!! What can i write in words that everybody else who had the pleasure, honor and privilege encountering the Man, the colleague, the fellow mc rider, the friend, does not already know. He was a unique human being! I will personally miss working with Kenneth, having a smoke...ore two, while talking about everything that we had in common....the passion for IT, mc, gadgets, private life...basically everything. Seldom does one have the joy of meeting a person that so easy, one feels comfortable with!! He´s stoic personality always had a calming impact. I am happy and proud, that i have had the opportunity to Learn You to Know KEK. And when Spring comes....and the myriads of fragrances that are in the air hit my senses....the first ride on the Warrior will be honoring You, cause You will be there....ripping the wind and feeling life at its out most!! To You Camilla and the Kids! words are useless, there is nothing in this world that can bring You comfort. I know and i feel Your pain! He was loved and respected by everybody that knew Him, cause He was that type of a Man!!! Life is unfair. And the pain will always be there...one just learn to live with it....in time. KEK....i will see You on the other side R.I.P.

We are in deep mourning over the loss of our wonderful son-in-law. Kenneth was a caring husband and father to Camilla and their children - our grandchildren. We are grateful for all the helpfulness he has given us – whenever we needed it. He will be in our thoughts and memories forever. We are two very sad grandparents. Inger and Niels Noerlund Hansen Slangerup Denmark

Niels Noerlund Hansen 15 February, 2013

As a former chairman of the board at Dannotes, I knew Kenneth from the board, where Kenneth always worked hard, always ready to give a helping hand . My thoughts are with his family. RIP Kenneth

Sten Vind 15 February, 2013

I had the honor and privilege of riding and therefore getting to know Kenneth over the past two years. There are no words that can adequately express the grief and heartache we as individuals and as a community are feeling over this loss. And knowing that this pain is nothing in comparison to what his family is going through makes it that much harder. Camilla please know that you and your children will be constantly in our thoughts and prayers, not only in the difficult up coming days, but also every time we ride. Rest in Peace Kenneth knowing you too will always be remembered !!

Paul T. Calhoun 14 February, 2013

I still feel the despair of this shocking loss of a fellow country man, dannotes, lotussphere, biker and a general great guy. But we cannot begin to imagine how this loss is for his family and in particular wife and kid's. Let us hope all these words and thoughts from great people all over the world, can bring just the tiniest bit of peace and comfort to them.

Lars Valbak 14 February, 2013

I had the pleasure of knowing Kenneth for nearly 20 years. Throughout that period I knew Kenneth as a customer, a fellow Lotus Notes enthusiast, a fellow DanNotes board member, a fellow Lotusphere participant and much more. I think back on numerous hours together, happy hours. My thoughts goes out to Kenneth's family at this tragic time.

Jens Overgaard Dinesen 14 February, 2013

Sandra Bühler 13 February, 2013

I still cannot understand that the smiling man sitting next to me at dinner Saturday evening on the 26th of January 2013 in the Blue Zoo is gone…. I knew Kenneth from many trips to Orlando, as a fellow board member at Dannotes and from many Dannotes seminars. He was a great guy, always ready to give a helping hand and a smile. It was also very clear that he was a man who really loved and took pride in his family . Dear Camilla – I hope that you can sense the love and warm feelings that are being sent to you and your children from all of us – and from practically all over the world. We will miss him. Rest in peace Kenneth.

My condolences to Kenneth's family, friends and co-workers. I did not know him personally, but I remember the face from the IBM Nordic dinners at previous Lotusphere events. As a fellow Scandinavian, as well as a fellow member of teh IBM community, it was a shock to learn about his death. So many of my friends knew him, and spoke highly about him, I am sorry I did never get to learn to know Kenneth. My thoughts are with his wife and kids. I know what your are going through from personal experience, and my heart goes out to you. There is not much words can do to ease the pain. But know that there are people all over the world mourning with you and thinking about you. Rest in peace, Kenneth.

Roy Rumaner 12 February, 2013

I didn't know Kenneth but I saw the effect his loss had on those who did. Mere words are such a feeble way of communicating in matters as deep as this that I won't even try. My thoughts are with his family whose feelings I can only imagine.

Simon Peek 12 February, 2013

My condolences to Kenneth's family and friends. I did not know him personally, but am friends with many who were close to him. May his soul rest in peace.

Garrett Wolthuis 12 February, 2013

My condolences to Kenneth's wife and children, to his family, friends and colleagues, and to all of the people in the IBM/Lotus community, who had the good fortune to meet and get to know Kenneth. Kenneth and I had similar jobs in competing companies, and have always used Lotusphere and similar events for light hearted banter about the business and our jobs. I shall miss the smiles and laughs, and the tech-talks and BS. R.I.P. Kenneth.
