Ken was a devoted and loving father, grandfather, brother and friend. He loved his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We will miss you every day, but praise God that you are healed and in the presence of Jesus.

John 14:1-3 :Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.”

“So I’ll cherish the old rugged Cross, till my trophies at last I lay down. I will cling to the old rugged Cross, and exchange it some day for a crown.”

The family plans a private service with no visitation.
