To Phyllis and her family.

As I look at the picture of Ken posted here I see a loving, kind and friendly smile. That's how I will remember Ken. Have missed sitting next to both of you at church. Ken once whispered to me during the sharing of the peace " still haven't gotten used to this". But Ken offered his "Peace be with you" with a smile and a handshake. May God's blessing and grace be with all of you at this moment in your lives. Ken will live in your hearts forever.

We wish to extend our heartfelt and deepest sympathy... !

Even though I knew Ken a short time, what resonates with me is his warm smile and kind eyes and his sense of humor and his passion for life. He loved his friends and family. He was a talented and honorable man. He touched the lives of everyone he met. He will be missed, but like his love, it is enternal. The memories of him will carry on through all of us.

Ken was my first friend in a new neighborhood in Butler in the 40's. Our mutual interest in bikes and Lionel trains have given me a great list of memories. I will always cherish his friendship. He was a great guy and will be missed but not forgotten.
