It is with Sad Regret that Highlands Announces the Loss of Kevin O'Gara

| Press Release
March 19, 2018

On March 11th, at the age of 82, Kevin O’Gara passed away in Ponte Vedra, Florida. A fixture in the office products industry for over 30 years, Kevin was the founder of KOGCO, the precursor to what is today called Highlands, and retired in 1995. 

“Any success Highlands has achieved would not have happened without the foundational work my father did over thirty years from 1962 until 1995.  He was a great business person but also a great mentor to many.  All of us who were lucky enough to work with him will carry some part of him with us for the rest of our lives.  For many, this will be the best part,” says Bob O’Gara.

Kevin’s funeral will be held on March 24, 2018 at 10:00 am, at the Holy Spirit Church in Atlanta, Georgia. In lieu of flowers, the family appreciates contributions to City of Hope in his remembrance. 

City of Hope donations can be directed to:
