I just learned of Ken's passing. Ken lived right across the hall from me in Abilene, and I felt so safe because he was there. He was a delight to work with and call friend. I know his family must miss him terribly, but Heaven is an even brighter place because of his presence. God bless you all.

I met Mr. Brazzle many years ago when I was a high school athlete in town. Growing up as a paper boy delivering the Tucson Citizen and being a sports fan, I knew of him and enjoyed reading his columns. When I met him I was impressed. He seemed to be such a genuine and straight forward person. Later in the season, after we lost in the state playoffs, I looked up in the stands and saw him. I sat down and visited with him and he helped me, a seventeen year old high school student, find perspective in what seemed like such a crushing loss. He didn't have to say anything, but he did. And I am a better man for it. I remember him fondly and am very sorry for his family's loss.

It was an honor for me to have worked with Ken, and to have hired him at the Citizen. I'm proud to be able to call him friend and colleague. Rest in peace, Ken.

Ken was a dear friend and the world is a poorer place without him.

Ken was my husband's best man at our wedding. He was one of the best guys I ever knew and I loved him as one of my family.

He was and still is a decent and honest journalist that kept it real and understood the struggle. May god bless him and his family? Heaven will get some good inside information. You were always appreciated!

As a former teacher of Kenneth at East Texas State University, I am saddened beyond words at learning of his death. Kenneth was always one of my favorite students. He was a hard worker with an outstanding attitude. His gentle personality and infectious laugh will always be in my memory. He was a good Christian man who will now rejoice in his place in Heaven. May you rest in peace Kenneth.

Braz and I were "competitors" professionally, but I always considered him a friend and a man of integrity. I was blessed to know him.
