  1. Great friend over the years, very faithful. Enjoyed his sense of humor and how he loved his children. Was always willing to praise others including me.

  2. Ken was one of the “good guys”, that I respect greatly. It is a privilege and joy to share with him the wonderful grand and great grandkids that I know he loved dearly. He was a special man and will be missed.

    To all his precious girls and Baylor…always remember you are the light of his life. God bless you!!!

  3. Ken was a true friend of 51 years. We worked together many of those years. I wish we had not lost contact these last 8 or 9 years. If I had to choose one thing, or one word to describe this good man, it would be “loyal”. He always looked out for others first and always placed him second. Ken and I loved to talk about God and family while we drove to see his customers during the 1980s and 1990s. It was an answer to prayer when he came to work at BSA to be a Supervisor in our last time of working together. I will miss him and I loved him like a brother. My prayers to his lovely family.

  4. I can’t tell you he sorry I am for your loss. I feel blessed to have known him over the years through his work at Miller Paper Co and taking care of his mother at The Arbors. I know Ken is in heaven with his wife, son, mother, and brother.
