    Uncle Ken, you will be forever in our hearts. We’ll miss you at our family gatherings and most of all; we’ll miss your sense of humor. We were so lucky to have had you in our lives as often as we did.

    We are grateful that you are now at peace and no longer in pain. And we know that you are sharing that sarcastic sense of humor with the Angels in heaven now. (Just don’t give them too hard of a time :)) With Much Love, Karen, James & Brenna

    We send our deepest sympathy to my nephew, Kenny, and his daughters, and niece Tina and her sons. My sister, Bette, was his first wife who lost her battle with breast cancer back on December 8, 1991. Warm condolences to his wife, Jean. Love and prayers for the whole family.
