I worked with Ken for a number of years at Cassling. Ken made a huge impact on the success of the company and a lasting impression on the people he encountered. Ken was consistantly kind, fair, reasonable, just want to hug him everytime you saw him. He will be missed. My condolences to Rita and the entire family.

I had the opportunity to be trained by Ken. I feel he was a big part of my success. As the years passed (40) we became good friends. We worked hard and played hard. Rita has always been by his side through the years. Ken will be missed by us all. Now my friend can rest in piece.

I worked with Ken at Casing Diagnostics for a time early in my career. I admired him fully. Ken was kind, patient, knowledgeable and an extraordinary mentor. We have kept in touch on Facebook over these many years and I was sad to see that he no longer has an earthly presence....but I am sure he was greeted by many friends in his new forever resting place.

Rita and family....So sorry to hear about Ken´s passing, love and prayers to you all. We was neighbors in West Des Moines.We had a group that played golf every week-end and Ken kept us all laughing, he was the funniest, most gentle and genuine man I have met in my life. I know how much the kids and grandkids will miss him and of course Rita, he was the best. Love you!
