I just returned to Australia from a trip back to the USA and heard the news of Ken's passing. We played many a game of basketball together and you could help but respect his passion for the game.

Kenny was an integral part of the basketball team at Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida, when I coached there. I am sorry to hear about his illness and his passing.

We were so sorry to hear of Kenney's death.
There are so many memories of watching him play ball. My Dad (Charlie Weaver) and I went to Columbus with your parent's to watch him play.
May God be with you all at this time.
