The field of journalism has lost a great pioneer. My condolences to his wife and son. Rip.

Ken was a neighbor and friend in Seattle. I was helping coordinate our local youth soccer program when Ken and Juli enrolled Max in the program as a five year old. They were unfamiliar with the game, but when I told them I needed adult help, both Ken and Juli jumped right in - Juli as the coach and Ken as a referee. I loved watching him running around in his shorts, with his knobby knees, and with a whistle in his mouth trying to instill some order into the chaotic pack of kids.

I have missed him since he left Seattle and even more so now. My condolences to dear Juli and Max.

Ken and I became friends when we both attended Lee College in Baytown as journalism majors on the staff of the Lee Lantern. His energy and passion for his field were inspiring even in those early days and though I saw him only a few times over the years and corresponded with him infrequently via email, I never forgot his booming smile and enormous talent. So sad to lose someone so dedicated to his life's work -- a REAL journalist, the way they are supposed to be -- and someone so in love with his wife and son. Condolences to Juli and Maxwell. There will never be another like him.

In the spirit of Ken's lifelong pursuit of open dialog, I'll explore the observation of another colleague about Ken's "messy" office. Ken's desk supported a tower of paper, namely phone messages, scribbled notes, and letters. This tower was celebrated in a 1993 cartoon by Etta Hulme when Ken, Juli, and Max left Fort Worth for Seattle. The cartoon shows a couple peering at Mt. St.Helen. One says to the other, "Take a good look. Tomorrow, the highest peak in this state will be the top of Ken's desk." (apologies to Etta for any misquote) When Etta presented her gift, Ken burst into laughter.
Jokes aside, this tower resulted from many items Ken juggled daily, no matter where he worked. Messages from job seekers and ex-colleagues. Stories he critiqued til calls interrupted. This tower existed because so many people, including myself, sought his counsel on matters large and small. He accommodated one and all. Once, I even called to share details of a sticky work situation I had resolved, thanks in part to Ken's "internet voice" in my head as the situation unfolded. Couple days later, Ken called to ask for the one-liner I used because HE wanted to use it on a difficult person. My phone number was likely in the erstwhile tower of paper on Ken's desk.
So, all hail the tower!
Max and Juli, thank you so much for sharing him with us. Ken lives on in both of you, and in all of us.
