What a ride my friend. 10 years at DPS! The laughs, the talks, the trouble (LOL), the craziness of friendship. From talking to god at the counter, talking to Grant Taff, the pranks and just the crazy people that made us say "What was that about". Today we said see you later. You took a part of my heart buddy. All of our Hearts at the CDL office.
When I go to the Train Expo this year for the 1st time with my grandson I'll think of you buddy! As I told ya We all Love you and we will be here for Patsy!
To the family our deepest condolences and love.

Ken was a wonderful Christian man who loved his Lord and the people he met in his life. He truly cared for others and helped in any way he could. We will truly miss his smile and sweet spirit.
