    I worked with Ken in the Assessment Office-very nice young man. His printing was perfect and he got along with everyone. My Sympathy to Jane (she worked with us also) and all family members. Rest in peace and fly with the Angels. Judy Smith

    Wow! Shocker for me to hear of his passing. Played basketball with him almost everyday in summer at 2nd ward. We would drive to Saint Francis together at times. Watching him handle his disabilities helped me on my own. My condolences to his family and friends. I was hoping to see him at high school reunion.

    Ken was also a gifted artist. He drew a picture of a duck flying over a swamp that my wife's uncle transformed into a stained glass window for my front door. Beautiful! Ever time I look at the door I think of Ken. Rest in Peace Ken.

    I knew Ken from the patton eagles. He was always pleasant and had a contagious laugh. You could just tell he enjoyed life. My heart goes out to his wife Jane and all his friends and family! Rest peacefully Ken. Becky Yeager

    I'm going to miss the big guy. Growing up with Fare taught me that it's only a disability if you let it become one. We played all kind of sports together and got trouble together and you couldn't ask for a more loyal friend. I'm going to miss his smiling face, you know that smile he used that made you think he knew something you didn't. God speed buddy. Joe Lacue
