My deepest condolences to Colleen, Michael and Scott on the loss of their most kind and loving husband and father. I am happy he lived to see his grandchildren, whom I am sure gave him much happiness. I have nothing but the fondest memories of Ken. He was always a pleasure to see.

Ken wasn't in Indiana too often, but one of my favorite memories of him was when he was 21 or 22. I was 15 or 16 and had taken driver's ed that summer. He had just gotten out of the army and didn't have a lot of money. Ken wanted to buy Dad's 1960 gray Pontiac so Dad sold it to him. Ken drove to the High School to pick me up after school to take me home. I only lived a block away and could have gotten there much faster walking, but I rode. He was so sweet and funny, always in a good mood.

We are so sorry for your loss. Keeping your family in our prayers. Ken was such a good neighbor and friend. Never failed to ask how Stan was doing and if he could help us with anything. His kindness and sincerity was always appreciated.

Kenneth was a caring and considerate brother. He flew a long distance to see Robert when Robert had his heart bypass operation. His kindness will never be forgotten.
