Ken holds a special place in my heart. Over the years we shared special times and interesting conversations. We laughed and enjoyed each other’s company . He was like my little brother-- I miss him and I celebrate his contribution to my life. I bless his journey home. Peace be with you Ken. Sister-in-law Pat

Ken was a very special man – caring, smart, persistent, quick-witted, highly skilled – and often underestimated. He developed new techniques for Union Gas field work and trained others in safe performance of complex technical procedures. He was instrumental in maintaining his niece Victoria’s computer (no small challenge!) and arranging her enrollment in the Medical Alert service. And his loving support of his companion Mocha was exceptional. I have treasured memories of his laughter and many good times together – he is greatly missed. Brother Dave
