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.

First of all I wanted to say thank you to his wife for sharing Ken with us, his Cox family -I've worked with Ken since he started here. Ken and I would always talk and laugh about our battle over the recumbent bike seat position in the gym at federal. He would move it back and I would move it forward, and he would always laugh yup Val was here, I smashed my knee again such a gracious man. So I say with a sad heart he will be missed. I can't image what you are going thru, but we are all here for you.
