As a District CT Clerk with King Co, I worked with Ken, both inside the jail, and in the Clerk's Office. He was a great guy. We had some laughs, and some great conversations. He helped me become the Executor for my 90 year old Aunt and she took a liking to him! I've been retired over 5 yrs now, and wondered about him every now and then! So sorry he left us, so early!

I just heard about Ken's passing and I'm saddened. Ken was a good guy and it's encouraging to see he was very accomplished in life. I'm sure he will be remembered fondly and missed terribly. RIP Ken
