I knew Ken through my job at Riverside Outsoors... I got to know him very well over the years as a customer and he became someone I cherished as a friend. We talked about everything, but the one thing he always brought into any conversation was how much he loved his grandchildren and how proud he was of his children! Anytime small kids were in the store, he would always say, I’m a PawPaw too and he would buy some candy for the child he had never met. He always left me with a smile and most of the times, my side hurting from laughing. He will truly be missed! To the Burns family,
“ I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. “
