Ken did a fantastic job of providing a safe and morally clean environment for years of Christian athletics for our children and grandchildren at New Bethel. When we had opportunities to see him out in the community, he was the same kind man of integrity that he was at the Church. Our sincere condolences to all of his family today.

It’s been a few years, but I know how much Ken’s family meant to him. I have a lot of memories with him and I thought I would share a few. I remember sledding in the snow! We would always bundle up but be outside for hours making snowmen in the front yard. I remember Westside Christian Sports at New Bethel, where we would be Every Saturday over the years. NASCAR race day was always so boring, but Kenny loved it! Earth lost someone special , but I know heaven is rejoicing. Praying for you Brenda, Larry, Tony, Dee, Ray, and the rest of the family. So sorry for your loss.
