Kenny, as I have always called him, my cousin for some 60 plus years have had a distant relationship only because life got in the way. I remember playing pool and having a few beers at my house when Evelyn would visit her older sister Erma (my mom). When we were kids we would play together downstairs with Aldora and Verdell, he was pretty good at shuffleboard. When he was older he would ride his unicycle in front of the house. Later in life we always regretted not getting a chance to ride our motorcycles together. The day will come when we will do just that coz. Rest in peace little buddy.

Ken was my big Brother. Many weekends spent with him and T during my college years at NIU. I’ll miss talking Harleys and Mustangs with him. He was and will always remain a treasured member of our family. I’ll miss you my Brother! Aldora, Vrdell and families please accept our sincerest sympathies and prayers to all.

I will always remember the great times Ken and the rest of our group had riding our bikes, camping, drinking miller light shorty's ( his favorite at the time) and raising a little hell in the streets of DeKalb. Have a good ride my friend.
