Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. God bless.
So many memories its hard to pick just one however, grandma said keep it short. Ken was one of the most creative, kindest, caring and definitely the most smartest men that ever crossed my path. His educational moments will forever be engraved in my memory. When you asked Ken a question, you knew to be prepared for the entire answer. Sometimes the full answer could be a couple hour event. Grandma can tell you about the hours he would spend educating me on criminal behaviors. Shes probably thinking what in the world is she talking about? I am talking about the countless hours he would spend reenacting prisoner behavior. He would tell me all the time how sneaky and untrusting prisoners could be. After talking about the prisoners he would go outside knock on the door to try and sell me random things, usually peanuts since he always had a can handy on the table next to his chair. We laughed so hard for countless hours. Ken has done so much for me in my life. When I was in high school I got a couple credit cards. Things were going great with the credit cards until I got hurt at work and was unable to work for a long period of time. Well as you can imagine not working led to financial problems. Ken could tell I was stressed one day and asked what was wrong. I finally told him that I had gotten credit cards and quit paying them because I didnt have any money and had to pay my car note with what I had it was priority. I was stressed because the collection agency kept calling and I was scared. Without hesitation he said dont worry Ill talk to grandma tonight and well devise a plan, and he did! He created a spreadsheet of what needed to be paid, said he was going to pay the cards off but there was stipulations. I was going to earn the money to pay back, I would need to settle on the cards, close the cards, and promise not to get anymore. This lesson in life was huge for me! To this day I still question myself before I use my credit card. Ken taught me nothings free, and most important you have to earn what you get in life. He taught me to be respectful, put others first, RESPONSIBILITY and that being a brat will never work in your favor. Looking back I dont recall one time i ever seen Ken put himself first, that just wasnt him! Sorry this was so long I have never been one to listen to my elders, sorry Gram! lol Me and the boys love you, and will miss you soooooo much... I am so happy you can now Rest In Peace. I look forward to seeing you again someday. Thank you for being who you were while you were here....
So sorry for your loss! He was such a talented great man!
So very sorry for your loss. Hugs and prayers. Lisa Cory
