Ken hired me 9 years ago, almost to the day. The opportunity he gave me changed my life and my family’s lives, forever. I will always cherish the time we spent together. It never felt like work. Ken knew how to have a good time and his sarcastic humor never ceased to make me laugh.

Ken was a great man and father. I’ll never forget the way his eyes and face would light up when he spoke of his children.

My heart goes out to his family and friends. Ken touched many people’s lives in a positive way.

We were lucky to have you. I love you, buddy. Thanks for everything.

Knowing that you are not of this world any longer makes my heart heavy. However, knowing you are resting peacefully in His kingdom above gives me comfort. I’m so sorry Ken, I’m so sorry for your family, your children. I pray that they find & hold tight the strength to cope with the indescribable grief of losing you. God bless you all. Rest easy my friend.

The news of your passing really floored me! See what I did there. Only you would get that. I will never forget the shenanigans we shared and friendship we had. Remember the time... I'll leave it at that. Rest in peace my friend. I always admired you.

Ken will forever be missed. He was such a great neighbor and friend. We loved sitting outside with him and just hanging out, but if you knew Ken you know he was not just sitting. He was rather ridding his bike, skateboarding, ridding his go-kart, or just playing with the kids. My prayers go out to his family.

I worked with Ken for 1 1/2 years at Seagull. He was one of the nicest and sincere people I have ever met. He was a real family man and was always willing to help others. Such a loss to lose Ken at such a young age. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this most difficult time. Ken was a good man and will be truly missed.

A new friend in 2020
We found commonalities in life
We talked and laughed about everything
We cried about life too and the struggles
I’m broken I have lost him, but thankful I have met him and have good memories
He loves his children so much
He’s proud of his children too
You are missed Ken
