You have seen so much loss already, keep faith that you will get through this. You will never forget him, I'm sure, but time will help. You and your family are in our prayers. We are still in Florida but would have liked to attend his services. Our hearts are with you.

Ken always had a smile...a hug...and an offering of help to all the boaters! His positive energy and affect on all of us will be deeply missed. Our condolences to his family! Russell Martin and Valerie Pariser

We are so sorry for your loss. We met Kenny several years ago and I always remembered his laugh. He was always happy and so much fun to be with. I pray for the family and friends during this difficult time

Prayers for your Family

Tex fought the good fight in the OK corral.  He was such a great guy and wonderful friend.  We will never forget the happy days as neighbors on B Dock; such fun times and cherished memories.  His smile and laugh will forever be etched in our hearts.  Our deepest condolenses.


I am so sorry for your loss. You have so many great memories to get you through this difficult time. While I only met Ken a few times it was easy to see he was a fantastic human being.   Many prayers coming your way.
