    I worked with Ken at PRIME Lab since 1989 and knew him before that at some of the accelerator meetings that we both attended in the early 80’s. Seems hard to believe it has been that long. Ken was a fine human being; it was an honor to work alongside him at the Purdue accelerator. Learned a lot from him. Always good natured and in good spirits, an easy guy to work with and be with. I’ll REALLY miss him. Just an all-round great guy! That says it all.

    I went to church with Ken at Buck Creek United Methodist Church.

    Ken was loving and caring. He was a role model to everyone.

    We will miss Ken.
