I have only a few memories of Ken as he was much older than I. What I do remember is him in his sailor suit. Sports cars. I remember he seemed to always be laughing.

This is Sam, Ken's next door neighbor. I'm going to miss coming home from work and seeing him sitting in his chair in his garage. That was his cue that he wanted me to go and talk to him. I'll miss our conversations and the laughter. Tammy, Sambo and I will all miss him!

I remember many good times hunting with my friend Speedy. The fellowship we had at the VCFD. And the many good times we had at the states EMT conventions. RIP my friend.

Kenny was my "big brother" as I was growing up. I will miss him and his cheerful outlook on life. I remember us going through his mom's vegetable garden stealing carrots and peas. Rest in peace Big Brother/cousin.
