My first memory of WB. Ken was his resonant delivery of the 'Charity' lecture presented to me as a new Mason when first initiated into the craft.

He inspired me to take on performing the charity lecture in his stead a few years ago and I hope to do him proud.

My heartfelt condolences to his family in this time of sadness.

Ken was a Past Master of Sandy Springs Masonic Lodge. He served the craft faithfully for all the years I knew him. He was proficient in the work and was willing to do whatever he was asked.

I considered Ken a mentor and tied to live up to his standards. He will be missed. Rest well my brother.
