  • Char and family:

    I am so sorry for your loss. Your love for Kenneth was very clear. May your fond memories of him provide you comfort during this time of sorrow.

    Jo Ann Brown (hospice social worker)

  • To Kenneth’s family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I have found comfort in reading Job 14:14,15 where it shows that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort and strength as well, remembering that soon God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever.

    To Ken’s family and friends,
    I was very saddened to read of his passing. He was the best K-Town driver I had, esp.
    after a trip to Milwaukee. He was taking me to Marquette Dental School and a young couple with a baby to a Dr. on the other end of WI Avenue. As we got off the highway near there people kept pointing and trying to talk to us. Ken found a flat tire on the passenger side and no spare! He dropped off couple and after much calling back and forth, was told to put me in a cab to my destination (with the fare coming out of his pocket) until they could decide what to do. I left him there not dressed for the cold and was only 3 minutes late for my appointment.
    Other times (usually when I needed a boost to my sobriety) we would talk about his work with people at the plant or the UAW sobriety breakfasts.
    But mostly he was a good listener if I was facing some medical treatment or other. I am glad for the time I had with him. RIP Ken.
