Sending lots of love and hugs to the family. Ken was a dear friend and always a blast at the NSH meetings. His hand cream recipe was the best! He will be missed. Until we meet again...
Martha Ann left a message on November 17, 2020:
I am so sorry for your lose. I first met Ken at the meeting were we decided to form NSH. We shared some fun times at the meetings during our tenure. Ken loved music especially Jazz, and he could play that sax. In later years he would talk about his children and his grandchildren with the pride that only a Dad would share. He would run around NSH with his pool on how long the Keynote speaker would speak. Although he may be gone Ken will be remembered with love.

I have very fond memories of Ken teaching me much that I know about histology from when I joined Surgipath back in the 1990's! Great man with tons of wit and humor - it was always super fun hanging out together!

Ken was good man and a cool cat. Happy to have known him and spent time with him. I'm going to go sit in the massage chair that I bought from him and think about the moments we once shared.
