We are very sorry for the loss of Ken. We know he will be sorely missed. Hunting camp will never be the same without him. He was a very special man that touched and was loved by everyone.

I dont know what else to say other than you were the greatest uncle a girl could have. Words cannot describe how much I, and everyone else, will miss you. Looking forward to college breaks and visiting you and Lou was always a treat. Your stories of curtain rods, beebee guns, and snowbanks will play forever in my head. You were always so happy here on earth, even in sickness and I can only imagine how happy you are now with Jesus. We mourn, filled with love for you, knowing it was a true blessing from God to have you in our lives and in our memories forever. Love, your niece ~ Kira

I have known Ken since before Kindergarten. His aunt and uncle lived next door when we were growing up. I recognized that he has been ill for a long time. He will be missed at our HS reunions. He always brought his keen wit and humor!!

We have all lost a wonderful man and he will be missed. I have known Ken since 1st grade and we were close friends all the way through college. Careers took us in different directions and separated us by many miles but our friendship remained. Its hard to believe that Ken is gone but I am sure he is enjoying his eternal reward. Lou and family, you have both of our deepest sympathies. John and Linda Nesser

To Lou and family and to the entire family of siblings...I wish to express my deep sorrow at the loss of a great nephew, Ken. I will remember him as a faith-filled person with a sense of humor and as one who had the ability to do a great job as MC at family gatherings. I will pray for Ken at Mass at St. John's Cathedral, Milwaukee as he accepts the loving embrace of Our Father. Pray for us, Ken. Sister Margaret Wenzel
Jeff Brinkman left a message on April 6, 2009:
Very sorry to hear of Ken's passing. He and Lou are in our prayers, and we remembered him this morning at mass. I have many fond memories of Ken and the genuine interest he always seemed to have when he talked to you. Many of us remember his engaging personality and interesting conversations. Even though I have not seen him in a while, I realize that I miss people like him. May God continue to bless his family and allow their memories to be as fond as mine.
John & Michelle Vander Heyden left a message on April 6, 2009:
Words cannot express how sorry we are for your loss. Ken was such a wonderful person whose family was everything to him. So many stories and memories and good times of activities, softball, and of course, the hunting shack will remain forever. May you find comfort in your joyful memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Lori Yonts left a message on April 6, 2009:
Dear Lou - what can I say except wow. It's just hard to imagine life without the best friend of your heart. Ken and Jack are most surely sitting on the porch of a heavenly cabin talking about the sunset, fish, deer ... only God knows what else. Oh how happy they are but how sad we are here without them. I love you and will continue to pray for you that God will hold the pieces of your heart together. You are precious.
