Ken was a great roommate to my son. What a heart of gold! Ken, may the longtime sun shine upon you, all love surround you and the Pure Light within you guide your way Home.

Our son was in Ken's class, and we have known Ken for many years through Regina and the hardware store. We are very sorry for your loss, and you will be in our prayers.

I extend my deepest sympathy to Ken's family. I went to high school with Ken and we lost touch after that. He was a couple of grades ahead of me, but we had study halls together and did plays together. I remember Ken was always kind to me and had the best sense of humor, which I appreciated then, just as much as I do now. My heart goes out to you and please know that I will think of him and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Jane Christy

I was so surprised to hear of Ken's passing. He would probably not even know my name, and I didn't know his - but our paths crossed both at Osco's and Lenoch and Celik where I was a customer. I always enjoyed having him wait on me.

This just shows what a presence a person can have - way beyond anyone's knowledge. I hope knowing this helps comfort you....

I worked with Ken many years ago at Osco Drug on Muscatine Ave. He was a good person to work with- always very friendly and willing to share his interest in music. It was nice to catch up with him when I would see him at Ace Hardware. My husband, Swen Larson, went to school with Ken from Lucas all the way through City High. We were sad to hear of his passing, and are so sorry for your loss. We will always remember Ken fondly. We will pray for you and your family.

I was sorry to hear of Ken's passing. I hadn't kept in touch with Ken after I left Regina, but I remember him fondly. His presence in the music room, or during drama productions, always made my day brighter. I am so sorry for your loss.

We have known Kenny since he was a little boy living across the street from us. He would knock on our door most mornings to see if Johnie could come out to play. She'd run to the door, she was only about three or four, to play with her best friend. Then in later years, it was always nice to be greeted by Kenny at the hardware store. Always with a smile and some conversation. We will miss him. Our hearts go out to Linda and Darrell.

I only knew Ken as the counter clerk at the Eastside Lenoch & Cilek. I was quite saddened to learn that he was ill and even more saddened to learn of his passing. My warmest condolences to his family, friends, and co-workers. Ken was always a friendly and helpful presence at the store, and I have missed him there already. And I will continue to miss him there forever. He won't be forgotten.

She was only three or four, and would go running to the door to play with her best friend. Over the years, shopping at the hardware store, Kenny always had a smile and some conversation. He will be missed, for sure.
