I worked at Winter Park Telephone in Winter Park, FL for many years. Ken was one of the nicest guys at the company. He was always smiling, pleasant and loved to kid around with people. I retired in 1997 and also moved to GA and only thru a few emails, able to keep in contact with Sharon and Ken. I know he will be a great loss to Sharon, his family and his many friends. RIP ole co-worker!

I am so sorry to read of the loss of Ken. I enjoyed having Ken & Sharon as clients for many years and have thought of you both often. You are in my thoughts.

I worked for Ken at WPT on and off for several years. He shared some of his Navy experiences with me, having also been in the Navy. The one thing that I will remember most was some financial advise he gave me which has had a profound impact on my self and my family's life and well being. Rest well my friend, fair winds and following seas.
