Ken and I made magic happen many times in the music business. He was the stuff of which legends are made. I will always think fondly on the times we worked together, laughed, sometimes struggled, but also celebrated great successes. Ken was one in a million and his contributions to the world as both a musician and a kind soul will live on. Rest in peace my friend.

I've known Kenneth since 9th grade...53 years. He was my first steady boyfriend..😀...for over 2years. Ken tried to be big and bad..but all that knew him, he had a kind heart. Such talent, remember going to the skating ring out on Saks Rd..Saturday nights, the band playing great stuff!! Aww, but the years rolled on... I will miss you my friend!!! 😢

I haven't seen Ken in years but, we were friends when we were teenagers. I used to go to his house and play guitars. The two of us built a guitar amp in shop class that was ...well...not great! LOL We were also in our first band together "Thursday's Children" I remember we were serious about music even back then. Now, over fifty years later, music is still a big part of my life as it was for Ken. I just wanted to let his family know his influence streached all the way to Florida. Godspeed old friend, we will meet again.
