I didn't know Ken passed away until a few moments ago when I discovered it by accident online. Ken was a consultant for my company Maritime Productions when we first met at the Provincetown Museum in 1993. He sent me materials for my shows for many years and was my go to guy for his expertise on Pirates and Maritime history. We were covering pirates in our shows long before Johnny Depp came along! I always considered Ken a very special person and an important source for quality research. I also adored him and his eccentricities. He was very much an individual and a person that stands out as the only self-proclaimed piratologist that truly was authentic and a sweet man. I felt honored that he liked me enough to share his research and be an important part of my company Maritime Productions. I am sad that he is gone but he exemplifies why we need to follow our passion and create our own realities. He certainly did and I was lucky to have crossed paths with him in this life.

I had Ken do a pirate talk at the Boston Stock Exchange for our group of investment professionals, it was right when the Whydah Museum was opening in Provincetown, MA and the whole story on Barry Clifford. He was so compassionate and a wonderful storyteller. All enjoyed his presentation and for years many of these business leaders spoke of the unique event and Ken's presentation. He was a true scholar, wonderful human being and enthusiast for sure of pirate history. He shall be missed. Loved his style! Darby Hobbs

I am a teacher in Maryland, and after Ken met one of my students at the Whydah Museum, he began corresponding with us annually. He was always gracious with his time, and he fascinated my students with his anecdotes and discoveries. I am so very sorry to read of his passing.

I only learned of Ken's passing today, March 14, and I feel like my boat's been capsized. I worked with Ken for years, me at a law firm in Minnesota, trying to make lawyers look seaworthy, Ken at the museum trying to toss a net over Barry and Bob Lazier for five seconds, the two of us in the end being successful in taming the furies long enough to put pen to paper occasionally. What a man he was!! Always caring and generous of spirit. Gentle and funny. I can't believe he's gone. Actually I don't. I know he's around here somewhere.
