Kosty was a wonderful guy and great dad. This is just terrible news. My condolences to his family.

The Big Fella was a hot shite for sure. Going to miss seeing him on the links and at whatever events we happened to be attending. :(

Wherever he is now I hope the greens are favorable and the shanks are few.

My thoughts are with his family and friends. I never met him in person but enjoyed our interactions here. Great UMass fan.

Man, does this suck. Great guy, great father and loved chatting with him, as well as arguing about the Oakland A's and some of the other pro teams he loved. I still remember when he took his young son to a hoops game versus BC and how happy both he and the kid were. Man, does this suck. God bless your soul, Kosty. Man, does this suck.

Very sad to hear of his passing. My heartfelt sympathy to his family :cry:

I got to know him via UMass hoops as well as when he'd trek out to the Bill. We each have family in the Toronto area so we'd joke with each other about that. He'd help this Yankee fan fend off Red Sox fans as well.

Waaay too young to go....rest in peace, Kosty!

Like KDogg, I had met him at that same golf event too. Real nice guy. Such sad news for his friends and family. Rest in peace Kosty.

Met Kosty a few times at the Bill and laughed my ass off several times at the stuff he used to post here. Guy loved his UMass. Bless his family. He'll always be remembered here as part of this family. Rest in peace big man

While I never had the pleasure of meeting Kosty, I can see he was very well liked by those who knew him; condolences to his family and friends.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.
