I worked with Ken at HSM for all of his years there. He was a wonderful friend and co-worker. I never saw him angry or mad. He was thoughtful, kind, caring and funny. What an awesome fellow. I wasn't able to come to the services, so just wanted to let the family know how much we thought of him. His upbeat personality and willing to help out in anyway attitude will be greatly missed.

Kenneth’s sisters-in-law, Sharon & I helped get Kenneth & Pam together. We joined the “teen” choir at church and started hanging out at the local Putt Putt where he worked so he & Pam could “run into each other”. We would relay messages back & forth between the two. They were absolutely made for each each other. We were thrilled when they got married! I even caught bouquet at their wedding. I moved away & when I moved back I lost touch with Sharon & her family but have thought about Pam often. My heart is breaking for her. No one should have to suffer the losses she has had to endure. Pam & Tammy and the rest of the family are in my thoughts & prayers. Sending Pam a big hug.
With deepest sympathy, Sandra (Graves) O’Leary.

I taught Kenneth Accounting at the Lancaster Vocational School. He was an awesome student and had a sweet, caring personality. Our paths crossed again as he married into the McAteer family. My Mom was Etta Hinson. It was always so good to see him and his family at reunions. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time.

The courage and strength Brother Ken had was an amazing attribute we should all strive for. I love the puppet ministry as well as many of the children. I pray that Pam will receive all the support and love she will need from all her church family. May Our Lord God comfort you and wrap you in His Holy arms!

Ken touched my life and all others who knew him. He was gracious, smart, caring and it was obvious his love for his family. Ken loved the Lord and wasn’t afraid to let you know he was saved.
I will miss your smile and your friendship but I know Gods got great plans for you brother. Save a place for me. I love you brother. Your friend Niles.
