    Well done. Obviously a gentleman I would have appreciated knowing. The granddaughter pic is one I can relate to. May he Rest In Peace and be a treasured memory to his family and friends.

    Ken was one of the good ones, always there for you, always willing to help, a true leader. Rest In Peace Ken, we’re gonna miss you Bud.

    Thank you Blair, well done my friend.

    No! Very very sorry to hear this bad news.
    He was the first Forum member I "meet" many years ago (2013) when he activated my account.
    A very good guy and huge loss for the family and the Forum.
    My condolences to his family and his second family, here.

    Not my blame if you do something that matches what I don't like.

    I was very much saddened when I heard of Ken's passing.  He was a fair man to be sure and passed too soon from us all.  May he rest in peace
