Lance and I just learned of Ken's passing and are sadden by the loss of a good friend and colleague. Lance and I will always cherish the many days and hours spent at Seattle East Cafe' and Zola"s; eating good food, drinking awesome coffee and having invigorating conversations. We miss you and love you Ken.

Despite best laid plans, unexpected events caused me to miss Ken's memorial service today. My sincere condolences to his family. Ken was one of a kind. He patiently bailed me out after trashing my computer on more than one occasion. Again, condolences from a fellow Sinclair adjunct professor.
I was very surprised and saddened to hear of Ken's sudden death, as he was an instructor I knew. The tribute to him today was very moving and really honored him.

I was not a full time student with Mr. Hook but through his free computer repair shop I learned a lot. He never wanted to stop teaching his students everything he knew. We lost a great person that would always give everything.
The Adjunct Faculty Office at Sinclair Community College is saddened by the news of Ken's passing. He was a great member of our faculty, not to mention a wonderful computer assistant. Many of the staff and adjunct faculty members here availed themselves the use of his SCOPE lab. Ken was a bright and patient teacher as well, even to those who were not his students. He will be missed.
