Kenneth was a fine man whom will be missed.
Judge Stephen M. Hall
San Mateo County Superior Court
It has been over a year since you left us, and we miss your spirit and energy. I know you will always be with me, your spirit, kindness and strength will live on. Your friends, co workers and neighbors have all shared their stories of their time with you Ken. And the message is always about what you did for each of them. They all miss your warm smile, your booming voice, your everyman spirit and your fierce determination to do the right thing, every time. Thank you for all you were to them and to me and our family. Your spirit lives on big brother.
What I remember most about Ken is his winning smile and warm sincere heart. Lovely man and the world's just a little bit less cheery with him gone.
To a fine person I shall never forget. A man who was one of the closest persons I have ever known. A great pal who was easy to get along with and I look forward to see again! Karen and Walt, Thank you for everything. Ron Peragine
Dear Karen, Walt, Carla and Will,
Such a beautiful tribute you put together for sweet Kenny. He was a man of integrity who we always enjoyed and liked so much. Kenny was a good man, gone far too soon who will be missed very much. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Our best always, Karen & Frank Paniagua
Karen and Family,
Ken will be missed. I went to Viet Nam with him, served in the 2/1 Armoured Cav with him, he was a good man and a good soldier. I am proud to have been his friend. He is with God now.
Today was Ken's 40 Day remembrance service at St. John Church. Many spoke of Ken's strength, his warmth, his kindness. Some spoke of Ken's ability to make them feel "protected and safe". That's our Ken, always the protector, without aggression, just confidence.
The days are emptier without your voice, your laugh. We love you Ken.
Halfway down the trail to Hell,
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddlers' Green.

Dear Karen, Walt, Carla and Will,
We are shocked and very sad hearing recently the news of Ken's sudden passing. While I only met Ken a few times during my wonderful years living right near you and then when he came to Carla's graduation at Wellesley, I always thought of Ken as a guy who could do anything he set his mind to (I always envy people like that!!). Ken was a good person with a big personality and a big smile who looked to help others whenever he could (Karen - just like you and your Dad; one of the many things that makes your family so special). He will clearly be missed. Our heartfelt sympathy to all of you during this very painful time. We are thinking of you every day and say a prayer to Ken and all of you to help celebrate his life.
Love, Liz, Paul and Eric
We shared a number of things good and bad, but our faith was always the good. I will miss you greatly. God Blessed all of us with you in our lives. Be At Peace!
I Salute You, My Friend; My True Brother!
Ken was kind and loving to friends and family. My heart felt sympathy is sent to his sister Karen and family. Itis truly sad to hear of his passing. He was a devoted and loving friend to my husband Jerry(Gerald) Mason (also deceased 2005). I have only good and many fond memories of Ken. May he RIP.
Kenny, rest in piece my friend, you are a true American.
Love your cousin
Joe, Cathy, Amberley & Madison Martinez
Kenny, not a day goes by without thinking of you. our hearts ache we miss you so. i feel so blessed to have such an amazing brother.
I just found out about Ken's passing. I met him only once during the time I had dinner with your dad. Please accept my condolences. (I played backgammon with your dad)
Rest In Peace Brother Ken
It was good working with you, you were good people.
Growing up across the street from the Partoyans was a blessing for me. Ken was myself proclaimed big brother that I admired and loved. I will always have fond memories of Ken picking me up in his Chevy Impala when I was a teen, getting in slap fights after he returned for Vietnam, and taking day runs to Tahoe after classes at CSM. He was a true friend. I will miss him. Love you Karen. Mike DeGregorio
Karen and family
I am sorry to hear of Ken's passing and wish you the healing that comes with time.
Joan Belforte Thodas
We will always remember Ken as a kind, loving, helpful, considerate friend.
He was an accomplished young man with many talents.
Always thinking, planning and ready to come to someone's aid. Nothing too difficult for him to tackle.
Not too many like him.
We will miss his voice, his face.
Achim and Koko
I am so sadden to hear about your brother's passing. My heart goes out to you and all your family. Peace to all.
I'm the more richer having known you.
Dear Karen and Family,
We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your brother and uncle, Ken. I'm sorry I didn't know him better, he sounded like a wonderful person. We are thinking of you and wishing you peace.
I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Brother Ken Partoyan. Kenny started his apprenticeship in Sprinkler Fitters Local 483 in 1979 when I first started my career as Administrator with the Sprinkler Fitters Apprenticeship Program. He was a good apprentice and became a good hard working sprinkler fitter. He was very passionate about his work, his principles and the love of his country. The last time I saw Kenny, he looked really good and he was just getting ready to retire. You always knew when Kenny was in the room, especially at Union Meetings. Kenny was not shy about speaking up for what he believed in. Kudo's to him. He will be misseed. My prayers are with his family and friends at this time.
Dear Karen & Family,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time.
You are "Good Man" Kenny. Hope you, your Pop and mine are having a really nice reunion. Peace, Frankie P
