Just learned of Ken's passing away. Most sorry to hear of this.
Ken and I enjoyed discussing our Dayton and NCR postcards and artifacts at the Dayton History archives. Ken had a talent making
custom boxes in any size for the special items at the archive.
Condolences to his family.

So sorry to hear of Ken's passing. We missed seeing him at WSU Raiders games this year. He was such a faithful fan all these years we knew it had to be something serious to keep him away.
Ken will be missed.

Bill and Family,

I'm sad to hear that your father has passed away. Lots of memories with your family. Ken and your mother were involved with the youth group at Linden Avenue Baptist Church. I remember a few times when I had a flat tire on my bike Ken was kind enough to give me a ride home. Plus who can forget all the Youth Tours! Im praying without ceasing for you and your family always.

Billy,

Sorry I cannot be there to pay my respects to your dad, I loved Ken and always enjoyed all the times we got to spend together camping and taking trips together with our families. So sorry for everything you have been through the last few years but just wanted to let you know we are thinking about you and your family.
