Dear Ken's family --
I knew Ken (never went by George when I knew him back in 1964)
when he had his dance band at Penn State. He met me through Penn State Singers and auditioned me to be the singer with his dance band. Ken was delightful to work with -- always great fun with a super sense of humor -- and I have only the most wonderful memories of him and his music. He went on to be a music therapist and after that we lost touch.
My deepest sympathies to you all.
Warmest wishes,
Louise Ryan Carpenter

Hi Karen,
I send my condolences to you and your family. I share in your grief.
I only knew George for a short time but his memory is now a part of my life. I enjoyed his personality and interacting with him at Elderwood. In other circumstances, I think we could have been good friends.
May God bless you and make George’s soul in companion with Jesus Christ.

I had the privilege of working with George (Ken) at Juniper Glen. He was funny, super intelligent and ever caring about his fellow human. Watching the moments between him and his mother-in-law, Doris, was a beautiful thing. She lit up whenever she saw him. If he could, he would make sure he sat with her at dinner. He wanted to make sure she was safe and happy. He also made some good friends at Juniper Glen, and I know he will be missed, I'm so glad I knew him, even if for a short while. He was such an interesting person, with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
To his wife Karen, Ken cherished your love and partnership, I send you and all of your family my thoughts and love!
