Although I didn't really get to know Ken at Nampa Hi (he was 2 yrs behind me), we got to know each other fairly well as he was a frequent passenger in my car to and from the U.W. while he was in Med School there, & I was in a PhD program in psychology. I have nothing but positive and fond memories of him. About a year ago I looked him up on the internet and was planning a reunion of sorts with him this coming summer......alas, not to be.
I'm so sorry for your loss! I just learned about this a.m. (12/11/13).......It must be particularly hard for you at this time of year. But you must know that Ken helped and touched so many people, and made this world a better place. I feel fortunate to have known him. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Janean, I just recently learned of your loss, and wanted to express our sympathy to you and your family, and admiration for Ken's accomplishments. Years ago, my Mother was able to come to Virginia Mason and meet with Ken about her concerns. She was so complimentary of his assistance and consideration. Ken has had an exemplary life and career. Regards to you.
Growing up I have many fond memories of Dr. Wilske. He was such a kind patient man and father. My condolences to Mrs Wilske, Lisa, Ashley and Kendell.
