  1. I have never worked with or for a finer man than Ken. He was intelligent, a hard worker, and was always ready and able to help others

    Ken was absolutely dedicated to the the important work he did that without a doubt his contributions made our country a safer place to live in.

    Ken inspired others to do their very best and helped them do it.

    It brings tears to my eyes that I will never be able to enjoy his company again. They don’t make men like Ken anymore. He was truly a national treasure.
