I met Ken when I was 17 years old. He was my husband Mike's childhood friend. Mike and I spent many years boating, camping, bowling and many other activities with Ken over the years. Ken was always fun loving and had a heart of gold. He was always there to lend a hand and or share his many assets with you as he loved having fun and spending time with his friends. Ken was there for me 3 years ago when my husband passed away. He checked up on me frequently to make sure that I was okay after loosing my husband of 36 years, He always told me if I needed anything to give him a call. He was a great person and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Ken's family and I know that Mike was there to great him when he reached the other side. Rest In Peace my dear friend!

Mr. Struss was our neighbor for my entire childhood. He lived on the lake and we lived across the street so we didn't have lake access. But he let us come over and use his yard whenever we wanted. He had such a nice yard, it was like having our own private park!

Almost every day during the summer my family would go over to go swimming and play with our dogs in the water. He was always so generous with all his stuff. Over the years he had boats, jetskis, and other water toys that he let us use.

I haven't seen him in several years now, but I'm very sad to hear of his passing. Praying for comfort for his family during this difficult time.

For 38 years Ken was one of the best neighbors we've ever had. We always tried to be there whenever he needed something and he did the same for us.

One of Ken's greatest traits was his generosity. Whether it was tools, power equipment or the use of his home on Lake Tapps, he was happy to share.

We moved away 3 years ago and have really missed him, we are saddened to hear of his passing.

We pray for his family and friends - for God's comfort during this trying time.
