My sincere sympathy to the family of Ken Friedl. I worked with Ken many years during LWBR days. Ken was a special person - very pleasant to work with and Ken always worked hard and put forth his best effort. I'm grateful to have known and worked with him.

Very sad news to hear of Ken's passing. I knew Ken since 1974 having worked with Ken at the Shippingport Atomic Power Station. Later I worked very closely with Ken when he worked at the Bettis office at Newport News Shipbuilding. He was always extremely helpful, always mild mannered and always a gentleman. I enjoyed working with Ken and exchanging stories with him. The Friedl family has my deepest sympathy for your loss.
