    Ken you made the world a better place. I bet you can’t count the number of girls you influenced through softball our greatest trip was the Touney somewhere in FL. It rained for days and you did your best to keep a bunch of teen age girls content. Ken I will always be sorry I didn’t take u and Karen on my boat last summer. Don’t delay seeing your friends, there’s a last summer for us all. Ken you are my friend and I will miss you. Don’t rest in peach, be yourself and party.

    So sorry for your loss Karen and KK. I’ll always remember Ken as “Coach.” He had such a positive influence on so many young girls as they were growing up playing softball over the years for Coach Ken. He was a good guy and I am lucky to have known him.

    Karen & Kacy you are both in our prayers. We have so many fun memories together traveling with the softball team. Ken was taken to young. God must have needed another coach in heaven. Know he is always with you even if you can’t see him now. Just remember you have your own guardian angel now who is watching over you always.

    Thank you Ken for being a best friend in high school. Your passing has stopped me in my tracks. I always thought that one day we would meet again and laugh about the old days. You will be missed but not forgotten. Thoughts and prayers to your family during this time.

    Kenny and I shared so many good times and learning experiences back in the day. When I think of Kenny I see him barefoot and banging the gears on that old 67 Mustang of his. He also had a laugh that would brighten anyone’s day …. Karen – your Husband, Kacy – your Dad, Kathy and Kelli – your Brother — was my Friend. I pray that God will comfort and bless each of you during this time.

    Karen and Kacy- We are praying that God will hold you close to his heart during these difficult times. Although the pain will never go away, time will help it hurt less. It is death that makes life so tender and it seems God’s plan for Ken was bigger than what he could do here on earth. We pray that each day God is with you in your heart and mind to remind you that it is because of death that we are all able to live. May God be with you as you mourn the loss of such a wonderful man.
