Ken and I attended Woodruff H.S. & Bradley U. together, and had many good times with friends in Peoria. Gail & I are so shocked to learn of his passing. He was a good friend. Our condolences to Sharon and family.

I was so sorry to hear about Ken's passing. I worked with him at Abbott. He was very knowledgable about his job.
