Ken's fitness training and love of the military will always provide poignant memories. At the Fitness Center at Sun City, Ken would get on the treadmill and raise the elevation to the max--and then run forever. He even took that training to the Island of Oahu in Hawaii and ran the 26-mile marathon around Diamond Head and Honolulu. Finally, his love of the Air Force and military became evident at each and every Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremony at the Veterans Memorial Plaza. He and I would meet on the plaza after the ceremony and review the event. Yes, Ken even became a genuine Texan who loved life and his family.
