Ken was always a friendly and enjoyable person to be around.  He was always approachable and his quick and somewhat “quirky” sense of humor made your day better. 


My QCA memory or Ken was of him cruising the One Way’s in his white T-bird, top down and with the “roadster – 2 seat conversion tonneau cover installed.  A honk of the horn and Ken waving back on a super 60’s QCA summer evening.


Rest in Peace and my condolences to his family.

Sad to hear of Ken's passing.  My prayers to his family for God to comfort them in the coming days.
