Wow! John and Ken use to have the best time with Ken's Corvette and John's Mustang as they drove back and forth to the Kennedy Space Center working for Bendix Corporation. We also enjoyed the picnics, parties, etc., with fellow workers. Great memories of our daughter Ginger as well as Donna and their son Kevin playing together at the parks around Titusville, FL. Diane invited us to Park Avenue Baptist Church where we became a part of their Sunday School Class. Great memories, life-changing friendship, and times of fun, playfulness, and joy! Thank you, Ken and Diane! Rest in peace, brother! May Father hold your heart, Diane!

Tom and I knew Kenn and Diane when they lived in Titusville, fl. Back in those days we were all the “young adults” at Park Avenue Baptist Church. We were like family. I was saddened to hear about Kenn’s death but know he is rejoicing in heaven.

Ken & Diane were friends and neighbors of ours in Titusville, Florida in 1966-72.
Our sons were good friends and went to school together. Ken & Jim both prided in their Corvettes together and worked at the Space Coast at NASA.
Our hearts go out to the family.
