Kenny was my "big" cousin. He taught me much about fishing, boats, and others when cousins met at family gatherings.

We have wonderful memories with Ken and Colleen going on several Cruises, a trip to Jensen Beach (Hutchison Island) where Ken loved to walk the beach, and many times enjoying visits to each others home and parties. We feel so lucky to have known and spent time with Ken. RIP. Dave and Sigrid

Dear Karter & Linda & family,
To be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord. Ken was a good man, who always greeted me with with a strong handshake and smile. I admired both he and Mary and always had good conversations anytime I would see them. I am glad to have known them. No more suffering for Ken, and to be re-united with Mary. God Bless you all.

To the Hollander family, my deepest condolences. I worked with Ken at Gardner Oldsmobile-Cadillac during the late 70s. Occasionally, I'd ask one of his fellow volunteer firemen on Long Beach Island to see how he's doing. As a car salesman and fellow co-worker, Ken was among the best. RIP, Kenny.
