I grew up down the road from the family farm. I have always had a great respect for the whole family. Ken was always talked to everyone. He will be greatly missed. Thought and prayers for the family.

While the amount of time I had the privilege to share with Ken wasn't great it was easy to see the character of the man was. Ken would come bouncing into our store with a grin and his quick wit that always put a lift in your day. We would discuss the farming progress, the weather, the kids, and the wives. Ken was a genuine man and his memory will always be with me. May your streets of gold be paved with corn, your hopper always full, and the toll gates always open.. Hammer Down......Love and Prayers from your friends at Superior Farm Supply

Nat , we are so sorry for your loss.
At Rachel's HS Graduation party at the pond, which we got lost getting to, I was talking to Kenny and told him I had to go pee. He said, " me too". As we started to go towards the Port a Jon, he grabbed my hand and said "Lets skip".
So we skipped through the grass!
Point is, he never quit joking around.

I had a small sanlblast job to do and he told me to be at the farm at 1pm. As I pulled in at 1pm he was pulling the 200# sandblaster from one bay to the other.
Point is, he never quit helping others.

We'll miss him immenseley.

Canoeing every summer with you and Kenny was a blast! I loved the way he maneuvered your canoe.. Right into the bushes, yelling, "Hang on Nat, I've got this!" The night time entertainment was hilarious, especially the skits! He was also very caring about how everyone else was doing.. The serious side of Kenny. He was one of the most down to earth man I have ever met. We loved both of you a bunch, Nathania. You will be in our thoughts for awhile.

He will be missed...

Ken delivered my feed from the Mason plant to Corunna. That was hard work and long hours just like on the farm. Ken, Brett and Brian all made it fun. He always updated me on Nat and the kids. He was so proud of you all. He was an amazing guy, I will be forever graeful for his friendship.

Ken was a family man who loved his wife, kids, family, friends, dog, and his cows. But, he was also a man's man, who was respected as being successful, hard-working, tough, and got things done, and if he couldn't get someone to do something, he did it himself. He faced death like he faced life; with bravery and courage.

I just wanted to say my prayers go out to the whole family at this time. I haven’t seen many of you in many years but I do think about all the good times on the farm when I was growing up. May God wrap his arms around you at this time and get you through the days to come. Love to the Hart family and especially to Ken’s wife and kids.

I will miss him in the truck going through Mason, seeing me, honking and telling me to get back to work. Followed by the wave of his hand and that wonderful smile. He was a wonderful man that comes from a great family. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during the difficult days ahead.
