He was always a kind and gentle man. He taught me so much growing up and helped me in so many ways. He was dad and I loved him for all he did, all he taught me, and all the advice that I might not have wanted to hear back then, but know I needed to hear. I can hear his chuckle and smell that pipe just like he is right here. Will miss him but know that he is singing in heaven for a much bigger audience. Much love to Mom P and the three Ds.

Ken was a great guy who we’ve known for over 30 years. Ken always had a smile on his face and never met a stranger, he was a huge help around the church especially in the early days of the children’s ministry’s. He was always ready and willing to help anyone with anything they needed. Ken and Helen were a great team, Ken will be missed and we all pray for Helen and the families . Rest In Peace and enjoy your special place in heaven, we love you. Steve & Mary Ann
