I was a salesmen who sold Ken a few tools now and then. He was always such a pleasure to see. He always had time to share with me. He had the cleanest, neatest, sharpest machine shop I ever saw. We will miss this great man.

Ken was always a joy and fun to be around. Lightened up our Sunday School class and D-Group. We miss him now, but look forward to rejoining him with our Lord someday. Suspect he's keeping in Heaven smiling! God bless you, brother!

Leo and Ken were always the best of friends. Always ready to share a joke or story which I am sure they are doing now

Sorry we cannot be there to celebrate Ken’s life. Ken was truly a wonderful man who endured so much physically. I always admired his deep and abiding faith. May his memory be eternal.
Mom and I send our love, thoughts and prayers.

I was very fortunate to get to know Ken through business, and through that, to share the Lord together in fellowship. I so enjoyed spending time talking to him. He was down to earth and had a great heart for people. He is missed. Condolences of comfort and peace to Miss Karen and the Roper family.
