February 03, 2014 "Rest in peace, Ken. One of the greatest men that I ever met. A true gentleman and ambassador for the sport of golf. His 1964 Open victory, and his incredible broadcasting will never be forgotten. He was a wonderful family man and I am proud to have been able to become his friend. There are few people who lived life so fully, and touched so many others lives. Everyone on Catalina Island still thinks of you Ken. Our hearts go out to all of his family and friends. I feel so honored to have known you. Rest in peace, my friend." - John Sheehy (CA)
