Ken was someone who could put a smile on your face - even if you were having a bad day. When he saw you, he would say "hi - how are you." His mom and dad were our neighbors for 43 years on Elsie Ave. in Crest Hill. May he rest in peace.

I knew Ken back in our high school days. He was my best friend's cousin & was one of the nicest people I've ever met. So sad to hear of his passing. Prayers and condolences to his family. ❤
