  • "Ken (I called him “Junior” then,) and I were best friends for a while back in the 60s. He was an awesome friend. More like an older brother. Kind, fun,caring. We worked on repairing bicycles together. We built forts, explored the river, went to the races and enjoyed many adventures. We lost touch and I only recently learned of his passing. I know he was loved by many and is missed by everyone whose life he touched. Rest in peace my old friend. May the Lord comfort all who knew and loved him."
