Ken was a good man. I'm glad I got to know him even if for such a short time. He definitely made an impression.

Dear Phyllis, Ken JR and Kelly:

It has been 20+ years but I will always have a special place in my heart for KV. He was a mentor to me in the early Itel days even though I did not work dierctly for him but it grew into a very exciting partnership for 12 years.

His death sadened me greatly but it prompted me to rummage through old phots and I found some pictures from some Boys ski trips and his early racing days that I am happy to share. Ken JR, you are in many.

I am so sorry for your loss and my thoughts are with you all. I will always remember KV as bigger than life and someone who would do anything for a friend.

Please let me know if you are going to have a memorial service for Ken. I would like to attend.
