Ken was great American, that truely believed in hard work getting you places. He never gave up. While many of our scouts hiked Ken's trails, I was able to have some great conversations with Ken about the cats, the wood varieties, the upkeep, politics or just about any topic he was interested in at the time. Troop 502 from Indian Hill is a long time visitor each fall--camping, hiking, raking, and cutting/ stacking wood for the winter. Ken, you taught us all a lot-about nature, about respect, about people.... and will be missed. I know those bears are wallowing for you daily now. Enjoy !

We are sorry for your loss. Ken was a great leader and organizer, really a beacon for creating and sustaining the trails. Allowing us, and I believe everyone to connect, or reconnect, with nature and themselves. He is, and will be, greatly missed.

Hello Barbara, Bruce,
Getting to do a little work on trails and other tasks was special because of who Ken was. I will always be grateful for the those times. He was a special guy who was hard to keep up with, even at 80. It was truly a privilege know him.
God's very best to you and yours,

Bruce & Mary - we are so sorry for your loss. I know you don't know us Bruce but Mary is one of my nurses & a fellow co-worker @ IU Health Bloomington. I didn't know your father but I noticed he had a lot to do with Bear Wallow. My Dad worked for IU for years & he would take my brother & I there. I bet we met your Dad when we were there. It is always hard to lose a loved one but when you know where he is & he is in no more pain that helps in your letting go. We will be thinking of you all as you go throughout the next several weeks. Mary is a great nurse & Ernie & I think a lot of her. God will be with you throughout this time & forever.

I was saddened to hear of Ken's passing. My prayer is for your family. Please know that our Boy Scout Troop enjoyed hiking Ken's Bear Wallow Trails and appreciated all the work Ken and Barbara put into the trails over the many years. He sustained the longest continuous outdoor trails program in the mid-west and possibly the nation. Many a scout benefited from hiking the hills around Bear Wallow.
