Ken was a great stepdad and friend to me for the past 30 years. He was also a wonderful husband to my mom Terri. Ken and I have shared many great conversations, memory’s and projects over the years. He was always there for me. He will truly be missed. I couldn’t have asked for a better step dad.

Memories are from elementary and high school . In early days, our mothers were good friends and often took a bunch of us swimming at Steamboat Wharf in Mt. Vernon. I never heard Kenney say an unkind word. He smiled a lot and enjoyed people. So glad to have known him.

I was blessed to have met Kenneth and Terry, and to have been welcomed into the family with open arms. We had only a short time together, cousin Kenneth, but we will continue the joy in heaven some day! I will miss you, but the love stays. ❤️
