Marti, I can't tell you how sorry I am. Ken was the epitome of a true gentleman. I have so many great memories of him, but what I will remember most is his laugh and his wicked sense of humor. He was a lovely, lovely man.
I had the pleasure of knowing Ken over the last several years on a business level that soon became a friendship. He would visit me once or twice a year at my office in Provincetown. I found him to be extremely interesting as he shared his most recent projects, expeditions and stories. He was a kind and gentle man and loved his work. My deepest sympathy to his wife, family and friends. He will be deeply missed.
Ken always had a smile, joke or play-on-words for me. He was knowledgeable and jumped at the opportunity to research even the simplest piece of history, to get it right. He loved cats, (every pirate ship had a cat or two) - and that's something else he and I had in common. He was a good friend, married to my dear friend Marti, and a pal to my soon to be college-bound grandson, Griffin Hancock. He will be missed!
There will never be another Ken. I am so proud and blessed to have worked and laughed with him over so many years.He was a wonderful friend, and a fantastic person to be with. He is truly missed.
Barbara and I were so sad to hear of Ken's passing. He was a great friend to us.
May he find that big treasure in the sky.I will be in touch.
