Sweet sweet Ken,
How you touched the lives of so many with your kindness and wit. Ken was one of my most favorite humans ever and I know so many people felt the same. His genuine care and concern for others was admirable. I can be sure that his legacy will live on through the many lives he touched and am thankful he is not suffering. He was so so proud of his wife, his children and grand children and told me all of the time that they were the best thing he ever did.

We will miss you, Rest easy “magic Ken”,

About a month after I started working at Steak N Ale in 1998, I ended up in the hospital for ten days. Ken came to visit me in the hospital. I knew from that moment he was a special person. Many of us often confided in Ken and looked up to him like a father figure. He nurtured us all to help us become the people we are today. I cherish all the times that our team got together every year. Ken will be sorely missed by all the Steak And Ale family.

Fair winds and following seas.

My sincerest heart felt condolences to the Braun family. Ken was an amazing person. He will be very much missed by all those he knew. I always remember him say often, he was the luckiest person to have had Diane as his wife and how proud he was of his children and then to have the best job of all, a grandfather. He was the first GM I worked for (steak and ale) that I enjoyed working for as he made his staff feel valued and appreciated. I feel very fortunate to have known Ken as not only my boss, but through the many years, a friend.

May the lifetime of love Ken shared with you make life’s journey a little less painful and bring God’s peace. May the hearts of family and friends envelop you and hold you close. May words of solace comfort you. God and the angels will always be with you.

It was a privilege to call Ken my boss, but not as much as a friend. The Braun family has been a part of my life for over 30 years with Steak & Ale weddings, cook-outs, reunions, and retirements. He was a great husband,father,grandfather, and friend. He will be missed..... Here's to you Ken !!!

There are lots of great stories of the young Ken that come to my mind and I know that you all have them too, plus many, many more. My loving thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time of earthly loss!

Ken built a team and a family at Steak and Ale, and I was lucky enough to know him first as a manager and then as a friend, but always as family. What made Ken so special was that he always put the “we” before the “I” and in so doing he created a culture that made us all want to be better- for ourselves and each other. Throughout Ken’s fight, the S&A family Ken banded together, to share memories and strength for Team Ken. We often said that we wanted to “show Ken he raised us right” and return a tiny bit if the love he showed us over the years. Yeah, it’s not normal for a group of former restaurant workers to STILL be in touch and bound together after 20 years. But the glue that holds us together was anything-but-ordinary. Ken, we will miss you for the rest of our time on Earth. And when we meet again, we will celebrate your love, His Grace, and a mushroom stuffed filet, with a baked potato, E.

Ken was my first GM when I first moved to Richmond. The solid base of people which worked at Steak and Ale hired by Ken became lifelong friends and family for so so many people. We are so grateful to have known him. He will be missed and never forgotten. Our condolences to the Braun Family and we are so sorry for your lost. Ed and Jenn Hine
