  2. Dennis an I are so sorry for your loss Ken will be deeply missed. We are thinking about you and your family..

  3. I never met Ken but feel I knew him a little by hearing about him from Rosie, seeing his pictures and reading Lori’s FB and knowing how much he loved his nieces and they him. I know he’ll be missed! Love and Prayers to all the family!

  4. I reflect on the good memories from my childhood. Ken was an important part of those memories, a great friend and at times, my best friend. I am so sad to hear of his passing but we are all getting to the winters of our lives. I hope we all have made some positive changes for America for our children and grandchildren to enjoy, I know that Ken did. Ken was a positive person with good values, a good heart and a good brain. I will miss him and all that he stood for. I offer my prayers that he will soon be in heaven and reap the rewards for the seeds he as sown.

  5. Kenny —- When I think of you I remember the good times growing up on St. Paul Ave with you and one side and Richard Anderson on the other. Many a walk to Lincoln HS until we could drive. I have good memories and I want your bothers and family to know what they already know, that is you were a good man and a good friend. May you rest in peace.
