My heart hurts with the news of Ken's passing. He is one of the people that has made the biggest impact on my life. Loyal, brave, compassionate, and fun are just a few of the many words that I would use to describe Ken. We met more than twenty years ago and for a short time, were inseparable. We worked at Outback together and during our first store Christmas party, Ken and I were jokingly named, 'Couple of the Year'. He encouraged me to follow my dreams which required that I move away after college. In that way, he is partially responsible for me meeting my wife. He further helped that effort by becoming a groomsman for me. I have too many memories of Ken to fit in the limited space provided here so I will just say that every one of those memories is a blessing and I am so thankful that he was in my life. RIP Brother.

We were so honored to be asked to be Ken's Godparents. We can't take any credit for it, but Ken was raised right, was a good man all his life, and now he will be a good man always. There are easier things to do, these days. Claire and I recall him at three years old riding his "nickel" and smiling just like this picture of him 45 years later. Beautiful inside and out. Ken wore his heart to pieces serving his country and his friends, and we will always thank him for lifting us all up with that devoted and selfless service. He is in the loving hands of Our Father now, and his name will shine in our family's memories.

Ken, it’s hard to believe you are gone. I met you in the fall of 1989 at UTC in economics class you had a broken toe . We immediate hit it off and started dating . I Remember all the good times . I carried your books because you were on crutches .we laughed about it just 5 months ago. We went on a greyhound bus to Washington DC to see your dad . We had a great time in college . You will be missed buddy ! Til we see you again ! Love , Selena

Kenneth was a great Soldier and person. He had a kind heart and quite empathetic. While serving with him at 1-101 Aviation I could always count on him to give a helping hand. So sorry for his early departure. A true Warrior and a great individual. Much love to the family.

I did not know Ken personally but my good friend Buzz Barclay told me about his background, service to our country and that he was a special person. I appreciate his service to our country. May he rest in peace.

God Bless

The way you loved, Ken, was overwhelming in the best of ways. The way you just fixed everything with a simple phone call or bear hug was astounding. You somehow knew what I needed when I didn't. You also knew I needed to be needed, we were the same in that aspect.

You always called me, in the middle of texting back and forth because "this is just easier. I have fat fingers" and I didn't realize just how much I loved that about you . You were my best friend and my safe place for a very long time. You saw me through a dark time in life. Driving around to take my mind away from things, having me come over to just sit and be and talk when my child went away for the weekend just to distract me. There was never a dull moment when we were together, except for that time I fell asleep on you on the swing at your moms apartment and you woke me up laughing because you thought I was still listening. My bad.

You were an amazing person in every way. When we went to the aquarium and Lanie got scared to go through the tunnel and ran out you literally stayed in there and bogarted that tunnel until she was ready to come back in.

Or when you forced me to go to Hamilton Place mall with you, and you said "come on there's a starbucks!" We got our basic chick drinks and had a blast of a time when I was never wanting to go in the first place. And that "basic white girl selfie" we took in that Starbucks, well I'm thrilled I have that now.

There are so many stories I have in my mind with you. And I'm forever thankful that I have them. I'm forever grateful to of met you and to have the chance to see into your heart a bit. I already can't wait for that next big bear hug.

Ken you were an awesome soldier and medic. It was always a pleasure working with you. My prayers go to your family in this tough time. Life is but a vapor, and we will all see you in better times and a better place and in the presence of GOD.
Ken and I worked together at 1-101 AV BN at Ft. Campbell.
