There's not enough words to express what a good man Ken was or express how much I loved him and our friendship! The times we spent together on and off the many projects and battles we worked with each other allowed for a special relationship that I'll always cherish and remember. Ken was greatly respected for not only his knowledge and skill of his profession but mainly for how we treated and respected people no matter who they were. He will be greatly missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing and working with him. Karyn and I want to extend our deepest condolences to Ken's family during this difficult time and that his construction family is always near if you should ever need anything. See you on the next one BOSSMAN...…..

Will never forget how thoughtful Ken was, working in paper mills under harsh conditions was always a tuff challenge but made much easier by his wit and knowledge. He will be missed and thought of often.

We are so deeply saddened at the loss of such a wonderful man. Ken was so much more than a Project Manager to us, he was our friend. Working with him was always fun and an adventure....you just never knew what each day would bring from him. The lives of his close friends and family will never be the same without his smiling face. He will be truly missed by so many! Our love and condolences to all. God Bless.

Ken, I want to thank you for being my friend, and having the patients and confidence in me and being my mentor the last 24yrs. Even after you retired you always had time to give me words of advice and wisdom. I know my world is a lesser place without you in but, as you always said “It’s not goodbye, It’s see ya on the next one” I will miss you and always love ya Your Pal, Randy

Kenny we’re saddened to hear about your passing! Your smile will be missed. I will hold onto the memories of when I was a little girl and you were my older cousin who would play around with us. And how you could always talk Daddy into letting you skip church on Sunday night to watch Gunsmoke with him! Yeah I used to get so mad because we still had to go! Rest High Kenny until we all meet again ♥️💐
