Ken was a year ahead of me at St. Ignatius and somebody I looked up to. I share the sentiments of my fellow Wildcat who posted that Ken was one of the nicest guys at St. Ignatius while he attended.

May God bless his wife and children in the days ahead.

To the entire Golonka family,

I just learned of Ken's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. Ken was one of the absolutely nicest guys that I knew at St. Ignatius.

I first met Ken my freshman year at Saint Ignatius. He lent me a pair his tennis shoes on the first day of basketball tryouts. Needless to say there was no magic in the shoes.

From reading the other comments it's no surprise to me that Ken spent the rest of his life helping others. My prayers go out to the entire Golonka family
April 05, 2011
Denise, and Family, our family is thinking of you at this most sorrowful time. I knew and worked with Ken at Vorys for 17 years and was able to see the joy his family brought to him.

Denise - We have never met but you and Ken have been so generous to provide rides to our daughter Shannon to St. Charles for play rehearsals. Shannon was so impacted by Michelle's Dad saying "he seems really cool - like Michelle really likes him". What an amazing testimony coming from a teenage girl. We will make arrangements for rides and please feel free to contact us any time you need anything. We are praying for you and your family. Try to remember that God is good. Not always easily understood, but always good.

Ken, Carol and all family members: Truly your strong faith in our Loving God will help you get through these sad times. But know too that countless friends are praying for you. Some occurrences simply cannot be understood in this lifetime. But as a dear friend said to me, to God death is not a tragedy, it is a Celebration welcoming His child back home. Take comfort in God's Love and Ken's love, which will continue to be felt through your family.
April 04, 2011
Ken and Carol,

Michelle & family,
We are so sorry to hear about your dad and have been praying for you and your family every day. Jonathan's last memory was of him singing to the radio. He doesn't remember which song, but said it was a happy song and he sounded pretty good. Maybe that's where you get your singing talent - what a wonderful gift he has left you - one that will bring you much joy for many years ahead. Don't worry about rides from play practice. We'll take care of it all. We just want to have you there with us. May you feel Jesus loving arms holding you during this time. Jonathan & Mrs Eskay Zins

My heart breaks upon hearing the news tonight of Ken's passing. It was only a few weeks ago that we saw you both at the St. Tim's-St. Brendan's game. Ken will be deeply missed by all whose lives were touched by his gentle and humble, yet magnaminmous, spirit. Ken's love of life was exceeded only by his love for you and your beautiful children.

Golonka family,

We were fortunate enough to meet Ken as our daughter Meghan's first soccer coach when fairly new to Hilliard. The "GRRR" growl he used in attempting to motivate the girls out of his huddles is still recalled from time to time when talking about various coaches the girls have experienced. We didnt get to know him well from a season of HOSA soccer but I also talked about ND football and real estate matters with him a few times over the past few years. It's obvious from all writen about him that he was a great man. Please accept our deepest sympathies.
April 03, 2011
Dear Ken and Carole
We wish you peace and God's love. We understand, losing a child is the ultimate test of faith. Please know we will be with you in prayer

Dear Golonka Family:

Our family's thoughts and prayers are with you. I have not spoken to Ken directly in quite some time. Ken Sr. kept me updated on Ken's life and family and conveyed greetings between us as we worked together on various St. Felicitas ministries. I have many fond memories of Ken from our high school days at St. Ignatius especially of our time as teammates on the track and field teams. Ken was simply a great guy and a good friend. Know that sometimes the good Lord calls to Him the best among us before we expect it.

Frankie, Chris, Inka, Stephen, Alex,

May the Lord wrap his arms around you and comfort you at this terribly sad time!

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.


God Bless you all! Many prayers to all of you!

Regina Merullo

I remember Ken at St Ignatius as warm, smart and funny -- self-possessed and well-adjusted from day one. Though I haven't seen him in many years, everything I read in this fine obit is what I would have predicted for him. We will pray tonight with our kids for Ken, Denise and their kids, and for everyone else who will miss him.
April 01, 2011
It has been many, many years since I have seen Kenny but I can still remember his great smile. With deepest sympathy, my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May you all find peace and comfort in God's love and fond memories.

Denise and family,
We were so sad to hear of Ken's passing. My husband and had just talked to him at target and he told us all about how great the children were all doing and he was so proud of all of them.. He truly was a great dad and husband . Always had that warm smile that was so genuine. He so truly will be missed by so many people because he touched so many lives. We will pray for your family through this very difficult time.

At times like these it is hard to comprehend let alone explain, but GOD called Ken and he answered...
GOD must have needed the best!

Ken has forever changed the lives of those he touched and he WILL continue to do so; in a different way, from another place. Do not ever doubt the priceless gift that your husband/father has left each of you; he has bestowed upon you an amazing legacy that will give you the strength to carry on. He dedicated his life to GOD and each of you and in return you will do the same.

GOD grant you the strength to get through this sorrowful time.
