I just found out and am so sorry to hear about Ken. I met him during his PhD and truly enjoyed getting to know him during his time at the University of Georgia. We talked many times about both his yeast experiments and his mathematical simulations. I was, and remain, impressed by his desire to address big questions during his dissertation. While he liked doing research, he was even more enthusiastic about teaching, which he seemed to genuinely love. He was so unlike other graduate students and I considered him a valued colleague. He was an inquisitive and genuinely upbeat man and I am saddened to hear that he is gone. My deepest sympathies to his family.

I met Ken when he was a student at Georgia Perimeter College at the Lawrenceville campus. It was clear then that he loved what he was studying. We grieve his loss, but we rejoice that he was able to do what brought him joy.

Ken was a teacher. Teachers never die. They live through their students.

My heart goes out to the family in this time of grief; hoping all of our hearts savor the love and kindness among us.

As Norm wrote above, Ken was a close friend as well as student, colleague, mentor, and teacher to me. We did not see much of each other in the past five years because I moved away from the Atlanta and Athens area in 2007. I do recall seeing Ken at a couple of field trips for the Georgia Geological Society. Ken must have been in his late 50's when I first met him in 2003. He had just completed his first few geology classes at Georgia Perimeter College. He moved on to graduate school at the University of Georgia after that and then taught at several institutions in the Atlanta area. He never retired or took the easy road when it came to his science.
