Like Mark I owe Ken the opportunity of a lifetime. I still dream about AFGE and I will always remember his strength and decency. Hope you are well Bonnie and God Bless.

From the first time I met Kenneth he treated me as if I were family. I am thankful for the great memories that involve him.

Dear Bonnie and Blaylock Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Ken was truly a Giant of the labor movement and crucial to the success of AFGE. AFGE owes him so much for transforming the organization into a highly functioning, powerful union.
I can tell you that he did so in the face of much ugliness. He truly loved his Union!
From a personal standpoint I owe Ken more than I can ever say. In 1983 he took a chance on a 32 year old kid and made him General Counsel of AFGE. I was that kid and proudly served in the position until I retired in 2011.
Ken was also one of the most open-minded human beings I’ve ever known. He really didn’t judge people on anything other than their merit. I never saw him do or say anything unkind to or about anyone.
I know you are proud of all his achievements and have great memories to sustain you.
My thought and prayers are with you at this time.
Mark Roth
