Godspeed Ken, we will all miss you as you sail away and join those who you wrote about with great passion, but without you our ship will never be the same.

Rare are the men who can live in two disparate centuries at the same time, and yet be equally comfortable in both. Ken was a brilliant historian and a natural talent whose passion for the history and culture of the Pirate age was only matched by his meticulous devotion to learning every relevant scrap of knowledge and folklore associated with it. It came alive for him; it was no dry or dusty chronology of facts, and more remarkable was how much of it he carried around with him, a comprehensive storehouse of knowledge that was all-inclusive; the serious, the funny, the arcane, the apocryphal. He was a unique and individual character; he made the world see him as he chose to be seen at any one time, and cared not a whit what anyone else thought of it. An easygoing and friendly, unassuming guy with a quiet, dry wit, I admired him greatly and lament how the circle of rare people whom we have met who can truly command our respect and even inspire us to imitation seems to grow smaller with each passing year.

My deepest sympathy to your family. Kens knowledge and dedication to his career brought much happiness to those who followed his work. I have vacationed in Wellfleet for years and have followed the Whydah through Kens information since it was located. He touched many people and it was my pleasure to meet him.

I worked many years with Ken. What a wonderful man and teacher he was. What a void for the museum. My condolences to Marti, Barry, and his colleagues.
