Kico Negovani of Troy died July 11, 2018. He was 93 years old. Kico was born January 10, 1925 in Florina, Greece to Kostandina (nee Cali) and Foni Negovani. He ended up the oldest of 8 children. His siblings: Sokrati Negovani (deceased), Irakli Negovani (deceased), Gogu Negovani (deceased), Magdalena Ktona, Frosina Cifliku, Piro Negovani, Gjergj Negovani.

From 1956 to 1981, he was married to Valentina Negovani (Cili), and from 1994 to 2008, he was married to Teuta Negovani (Jovani). Both wives preceded him in death. He is survived by his son, Ilirjan (Ana) Negovani, and daughter, Ardiana (Ben) Bejleri, his grandchildren, Nels Bejleri, Valentino Negovani, and Ulind Bejleri, and several nieces, nephews, and friends.

Kico served proudly during the Second World War, receiving both the Albanian Medal of Honor and the Albanian Medal of Liberation. He received his bachelor’s degree from Platov South Russian State Polytechnic University in 1953 and his PhD from the University of Tirana in Albania, where he also served as Vice President and Dean of College of Engineering from 1956 to 1967. In 1958, he was the Bronze Medal Winner in Project of Engineering for the 500th anniversary of the University of Prague.

He was later honored with many other awards and achievements throughout his life in academia and professional career. From 1975 to 1981, he served as Chief Engineer for the construction of the Fierze Hydroelectric Power Station. Altogether, he spent 25 years lecturing in Engineering, which he considered the most enjoyable part of his career. In his spare time, he enjoyed reading, classical music, swimming, and tennis, but he especially enjoyed spending time with his family. He was deeply loved and will be sorely missed.
