Ken was such a great friend and civic servant. His true joy was helping others. I remember all the weekends at Camp Sealth with our daughters. All the times we were TP'd . There were so many camp-ins at the Pacific Science Center helping the campers get the most of their experiences there. God surely told him his work on earth was done and he had earned a rest. Bless you Ken.

My sincere condolences to Ken's family. Ken passed far too early for a good person. I, like Ken spent time in the US Army we would pass time on escorts talking about it. I considered Ken a good friend and we worked well together at Elite. Sadly I have been told I, along with other officers from other companies aren't welcome at his Celebration of Life. Our prefession is a close knit group, like law enforcement. When a member of our family passes we stand with each other. Offer hugs, talk about the good times then laugh off the bad times. We as friends and other escort officers will miss not seeing Ken controling an intersection as the procession passes. Now Ken will be with those we have taken to their final resting place. I hope they all pat him on the back and say "Thanks for the ride" I've heard he's being buried in his motor, very fitting. We will see each other in what ever comes next.

Ride Safe Ken
