To all of Ken's family. I was so sad upon hearing of Ken's death. We volunteered together many times and he was always such a pleasure to be around. My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this sad time.

Please accept my prayers and condolences. I considered Ken a good friend as we volunteered together for the church in many capacities over the past 34 years. I always looked forward to seeing him at church on Sundays. He will be so missed by not only myself but all of St. Josephs family. Can't imagine him gone but trust in Jesus promise that he is with him now - surely a much better place. With kind regards to all of the family, Melonie Gillis

What a blessing it was to know Ken. He gave of his time and talents with such dedication. He truly understood the meaning of hospitality and everyone - regardless of their age - was greeted with his warm and cheerful words. Ken touched so many people's lives and made such a difference to them. Our sincere sympathy to Ken's family.

I was so sorry to have learned of Ken's passing. Like so many other individuals in this community, I met Ken through volunteer work. He was a volunteer and board member of my organization and was always available to help out with whatever the function was and did so in such a cheerful and helpful manner. My sincere condolences are extended to Ken's family.

Dear Berthe, Our deepest condolences to you and all your family. Ken was a great friend and an indispensable member of our parish. We will miss him and miss the wonderful brunches after church, at which he was a vital element. He really knew how to build community. Blessings always.
