I am an 8th grader in Gallatin TN. I remember back in kindergarten when Mr. Hirth was the P.E. teacher. I don't have many memories of him but this is still very heartbreaking, I wish the best for his family.

Ken was a great guy. He was a good friend, hair cutter, and church friend. He had a good sense of humor and fun. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jeanie and Tyler.
