For that I am eternally grateful. The 4 "F's" is something I will live throughout my life. As a current high school coach in Oro Valley, AZ I was fortunate to share R.M.A with a youth group grades 7th/8th. The lesson during the season was priceless and the knowledge...

Patti....I am saddened to hear about Coach's passing. What a great friend and inspiration he was in our yoga classes. He will be missed by so many in all walks of life. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Carolyn Fricke

Coach was one of the best teachers I have every had, and I will always remember him telling our class to take a date to Costco for the free food!(: One of the best people I have ever met, Coach will be truly missed.

I am sending prayers and a smile of the fun memories I shared with Ken. Sorry for your loss,, God Bless, Lew Myer Class of 1961

Ken, Jim and I went through school together. He always had the biggest smile and so cute! Very popular with the girls! We know he fought long and hard. Our thoughts are with your family at this time of your loss.

Ken was a year ahead of me in high school, but I remember his great smile and sense of fair play in sports. Rest in the arfms of the Lord. Claire Arano

So many wonderful memories with Coach, Patti and Matt. From Little League games at Hilltop,McQueen Lancer football years and the "boys" get togethers during college. Its these memories that will keep Ken alive in our thoughts and hearts. What a great life Ken had and knowing him gave us a great life also. I will look to the heavens and see his star next to the other star I smile at every night. The angels will love and protect him.
