I can't believe tomorrow marks 2 years that my beloved brother was called home. Loving memories flood my mind daily, and I can still here Ken's voice, and see his smile. I'll always hold on tight within my heart of the Love we shared, and look forward to the day we'll be reunited.

Ken and I played music together several years ago. He was a gifted singer and musician blessed by God with amazing talent. The world has lost a positive light. Praying for the family to be comforted by beautiful, cherished memories of him. He was so, so proud of his family.

I just learned of Ken's passing today. I am so sorry to hear this but rejoice that he has received his reward. I worked for Ken at Wendy's back in the mid 80's. He was such a great guy. I have so many fond memories of those times!

A few memories: Ken playing the banjo-which I thought was so cool, he and my dad playing instruments and singing, Uncle Ken singing "Into the Mystic" at my wedding, stories of he and my dad when they were young boys being boys- my favorite is about Uncle Ken trying to fly. When I think of my Uncle the first thing I see is his big round smile. These are the things that I will remember and cherish. Jil, Josh, George and Philip I am so sorry that your time with him on this earth is over. He was a great man. Love to you all! Boys, keep the music going!
