Everytime I think of Ken I see that bright smile on his face that lit up the room. He was truly one of the nicest people I have ever met. I knew him through working at Unyts and I am glad I had the opportunity to get to know him. He was so helpful and always so positive. He will be greatly missed by so many people. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Ken Drake...a friend for close to 50 years. Ken was one of the smartest people I've ever known. He was honest and most of all, caring.

His values were reflected in his work ethic, his friendship, and his golf game

Our sincerest sympathy to Shelley, Rob, Allison and family

Ken will be missed...but never forgotten

Love you Ken....Rest in Peace
