Ken and I graduated from International School of Bangkok 1967, he can be classed as one of the most unforgettable people you will ever meet in life. Ken was always fun on the softball team, a great athlete, and as a member of the band the Sonics, he and the band provided all the great dance songs of the Mid 1960's and lots of slow dancing, at all the dances 1965-1967, fomenting lots of high school romances; he was always full of life, humor and joy, he is missed. From what I heard, he was a great VP, having been in telecommunications sales for 28 years myself, the VP of Sales is the heartbeat of most companies, the source of revenue growth. Kenny certainly had the personality and possessed the rare qualities need in that position; having been a leader at International School of Bangkok in High School, certainly being a VP would be a natural state of being for Kenny, RIP my friend, see you soon.

I have known you for 50 years and I will miss you. Your parents and my Dad started the Teen Club in Bangkok in 1965 and for that I thank them both.

So very sorry for your loss.

I, personally, lost my good friend Kenny upon my leaving Bangkok many decades ago. But I was pleasantly surprised to meet up with him at a recent ISB reunion. During that weekend I am very thankful to have joined him on stage (one more time) and relive our teenage music partnership (a memory I will continue to have of us singing a couple Kinks songs along with drummer Chris Curtis of our competitor band at ISB, the Sonics). Because of Kenny's outgoing nature and bringing myself, Jerry Nelson, Norman Diah, and the De Leon's together, he was responsible for forming our BritishBeat band, The Images. Likely due to that experience, I, personally, had the foundation for continuing with a lifetime of performing music. Kenny and his wonderful outgoing nature were also responsible for introducing me to my teenage sweetheart at ISB (something I will now share with her the next time I visit her on my neighboring island).
Thank you, Kenny!

Ken was the best vice-president I have ever worked with. He was small in stature but big in heart and personality. He taught me so much about being genuine with people and providing exceptional customer service. I didn't have the privilege of seeing him every day since he worked in one location and I in another. But every time, I saw him, he made it a point to encourage me. Whether it be telling me I was great at my job or making me laugh at silly jokes when I felt like crying. Farewell, my friend. A place in my heart will always be yours.

Ah, Kenny...we will all miss you so. One of my favorite saved photos of our senior year at ISB in ‘67 was Ken and I on break ‘tween classes with him playing my acoustic 12 string while I watched, secretly saying to myself “Yeah sure..I can do that!!
And to then play 18 holes with him in Phoenix some 35 years later, golf..not guitar..😜 was all the more sublime and priceless. Sleep well old friend. We’ll all join you soon enough.

Our heartfelt condolences to your family.

Although we were not close friends, Ken's many wonderful attributes are evident to us through Kyle. Kyle is confident without being disrespectful, he is kind, he is fun to be with, and he is loyal. All qualities learned from and taught by his parents. We know that nothing can take away your heartache, but we hope that you are able to take some small comfort in knowing that Ken's best qualities will live on through his son. Our family feels blessed to both witness and benefit from that legacy.

Sheila & David Richburg and family

From 1965 through 1967 Ken & I were musical brothers in “The Sonics”. He added great spirit to the group & we always enjoyed making music together. We can be heard on the internet.

Our condolences go out to his family. Ken will be missed by all who knew him.

I knew Ken for over 21 years, and he was the ultimate definition of a "people person." You could go anywhere with him and he always seemed to know someone, and always seemed to know something about them.
