Dear Ken was a true gentleman and my daughter, Angela, and I appreciated our time living on Michigan Ave. He and Margaret were lovely people and he was quick to give me a chuckle or some advice at a difficult time in my life.

Fond memories,
Suzanne and Angela Gaiero

After searching for quite some years I finally got to meet you in real life. Every one knows that you are a veteran and this is where I found out that you are my dad. You and your wife accepted me without second thoughts and embraced me when you found out you had a son here in Holland as a legacy from your time at war.

I'm proud to have met you and to say you are my father and that I got a whole new family. My brothers, Craig, Brian and Brent I am great full for you in my life.

I'm sad to be stuck here in Holland and that I am not able to say my goodbyes in person.
You will be missed and I wish my family a lot of strength with this great loss.

To the Bowman family, I would like to express my sincerest condolences on the passing of Ken. My memories were all from the time when Ken and I worked for my father in real estate. Hugs and prayers 🙏
