Becky and I were deeply saddened to learn of Ken's death. We send this tribute to a very special person:


Tribute to Ken Kolmodin
Becky and I were saddened to learn that Ken died suddenly. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Linda and the entire Kolmodin familty.

Ken Kolmodin was the consummate definition of “the gentleman.” His stature, demeanor, and personality exemplified what has been known for centuries as a gentleman. Kind, thoughtful, disciplined, and purposeful, Ken was the kind of person who quietly and unassumingly “just got the job done.” No fanfare, no drawing attention to himself, no bragging, just dedication and hard work.

Now, don't confuse gentleman with lack of passion or spunk. Ken was strong willed and even opinionated, but he channeled that strong will toward helping, inspiring and a bit of cajoling when needed to focus people's attention on the task at hand. I always knew that when Ken was given a responsibility that it would be carried to fruition and completed with the highest attention to quality and integrity. Nothing slip-shod or second rate about any project Ken oversaw. Only the best materials and effort would pass muster with Ken.

While I wasn't a close friend, I observed in Ken's interactions with his wife and children a caring and compassionate father and husband, but also one who believed in setting high standards for himself and those he loved. His disciplined demeanor would give way to a vulnerable and broad smile when he talked about the pride he felt toward his family.

In this time of quick fixes and immediate gratification, the “gentleman” with maturity, civility, courtesy, and the long view is a rarity. Losing “the gentleman from Irwin Avenue” is a loss for all of us. May we pay tribute to Ken's memory by trying harder to be the kind of gentleman he was.
