Ken was one of the nicest men I have ever met. While I was growing up in the Hillham Church Ken was always positive, went out of his way to help anyone he could and to give you a pat on the back when something positive was done. He and Mary were always on the southwest corner of the Springs Valley gym during games and you knew you could look up at him for a look of reassurance.

Mary and Jolie, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

When I think back over the 25+ years of knowing Ken and working with him I remember his dedication to detail in everything he did and he always gave his best in everything he did.  He served his country he served his state with distinction and honor, he was almost always the first person in and the last person out. He loved life and people, he was a great story teller, teacher, and most of all a good friend.
This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 (NKJV)
Let his life be an example to those that witnessed his journey.  We have all been blessed to have known Ken, he battled cancer head on and may have lost this battle but has won out in being called home to be with his make and live in eternal peace.  I pray that that same peace cover the family in this time of need and the days to come.  Know that Ken suffers no more and he is being rewarded for his faith and works.
