I'll always remember sorting through Halloween candy and designating Tootsie Rolls for Uncle Ken because I knew he liked them. I'll always remember going Christmas shopping and reminding my mom to buy him a Scooby Doo calendar, then watching him open the gift and “guessing” what it was. I'll always remember taking a shot of tequila with him when I just turned 21. I'll remember so many things. He was always there for me and my siblings, no matter how big or small the event was.

Uncle Ken was such a kind and warm person who loved my Auntie Yung with his entire heart. He lived an incredible life, and I aspire to live my own life as fully, and as adventurously as him and my Auntie Yung. Uncle Ken, I know you’re in heaven now, but I want to thank you for being one of the biggest role models and supporters in my life. I love you and miss you always.

I will always remember my Uncle Ken's love and support for me and my siblings. Uncle Ken watched me grow from a kid to adulthood. He was always there for our birthdays, graduations, life accomplishments and almost any event we invited him too. I was blessed to have a role model like him. I was able to travel to Japan, Thailand and Mexico with him, plus a couple cruises. It's amazing to see all the places my Auntie Yung and Uncle Ken traveled too, and motivates me to travel as much as I possibly can. One thing we both had in common was the love we shared for our family dog, Charlie. Uncle Ken was Charlie's favorite person - hands down. You were truly able to see how warm and kind-hearted he was. One of my biggest memories I have of my Uncle Ken was how much he loved my Auntie Yung. They were two peas in a pod. It was blatantly clear how much they loved each other and how strong their relationship was. It's a wake up call to live life to the fullest and I believe Uncle Ken truly lived his. Thank you Uncle Ken for being the best Uncle Ken I've ever had. I miss and love you, and can't wait to see you again <3

On behalf of our daughter, Di, I would like to extend our greatest thanks to all of you more so especially to Arline, John, Becky, and Bob. You're all such a wonderful family. All of you have to say goodbye to our son, Ken, who left us so suddenly without notice. It's unfortunate that this happened this way. Anyway, I ask each and everyone of you to please visit us when you folks have a chance. I now consider you a part of our family even though Ken is gone. Our house door is open to all of you any time. Thank you for allowing us to share in our grief together.

Love,
Don and Lily Lacerna and Family

Our next door neighbor Ken will always be remembered. He was always kind and willing to help in any way he could. We will miss his smile as he tended to his plants every week. Even though we were not close friends we want his wife to know that we are here to support her in any way we can.

This is going to ramble a bit... I first met Ken through Di at a company event for what was my first ‘real’ job at a company named SCT. Di was my boss and I was super excited to meet her husband as well as actually be at a ‘company’ event. Fast forward a month or so to the end of the month to one of the worst days of my life, a lay-off... On my way out as I was packing my cubicle (which, as those who know me, can take a while) Di gave me Ken’s card and said to give him a call. I called on Tuesday (lay-offs always happen on Monday) and we scheduled an interview for the next day. It was one of the most incredible interviews I have ever had! Have you ever had that interview where the panel is not only excited but begins making plans on the spot? This was one of those. Ken mentored me through those first years at Maintenance Warehouse and became my friend. To me Ken will always be that mentor who not only taught but was excited to see others succeed. Ken, thank you for your enthusiasm and vision!

Dear Arline. I want you to know my heart is breaking for you. I’m not going to tell that it will get easier because you will always have a hole in your heart. It will grow smaller over the years but will never close completely. Please let me know if I can do anything or if you want to talk. I love you Arline and you are in my prayers.🙏💕

Ken is going to be missed. I have been fortunate to know him from work and outside of work. During our talks, it felt like we had been friends for a long time. He was so welcoming and very supportive of those around him. We talked about family, our neighborhood and work. He mentioned that he was voted to serve on the board of our association, I was thrilled for him. We talked a lot about our neighborhood this was always a good way to de-stress from work. He had such a great memory. He knew my daughter was in Girl Scouts so he would come by to support her by ordering cookies. It has been a great honor knowing him. I am going to miss our talks and seeing your face at work. My condolences.

Ken was such an amazing friend. In the 10+ plus that I knew him, he taught me so much and was always willing to chat/catch up or teach me new things. I am shocked and deeply saddened by his passing and will miss him dearly. I will be praying for his amazing wife and family. Love you Ken!

My heart is broken, Ken was the best guy. He taught me a lot and had patience with me when others didn’t have time. I look for Ken every morning as we are the two early birds in the IT group. At first, I would look for him to collect lotto money but then it was just nice to see his car and know I was not the lone ranger on the third floor. He was one of the loyal lotto players but always said I was collecting his money to get my dog steak. He named her ‘Mitzy’ even though that was not her name, but I went along with it. I would go to his desk say it was time to buy ‘Mitzy’ her steak and he would give me the $2.00. I will continue to put in money from Ken to support ‘Mitzy’s’ filet habit. I miss him already. Peace be with him and may God be with his wife and family.
