Korg USA mourns the passing of company president Michael Kovins. Kovins worked with the company for 26 years and served as president for the last 14 of those years. A respected music industry figure, Kovins was diagnosed with leukemia nine years ago and fought the battle for his health with courage and dignity. On May 2, 2006, Kovins passed away at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in Manhattan. He is survived by his wife, Katherine.
The family is holding a private remembrance service and has requested that in lieu of flowers, a donation in Kovins’ memory be made to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (www.leukemia-lymphoma.org).
