I have the fondest wonderful memories of my Uncle Ken swimming/tossing us into Big Lake as my brother Jack & I were young children - - - and what fun it always was to visit Appleton and our Aunt Helen & Uncle Ken .....later in life we treasure getting to know our Cousins Patti and Doug as adults and spending some time together. Love You All, Shirley

I will always cherish my childhood days when our family drove from CT to visit Aunt Helen and Uncle Ken. Aunt Helen always gave us a warm welcome and then Uncle Ken would shift it into another gear with his comedy routines. It seemed he was always making an entire roomful of people laugh. That's what we came to expect of him every time we saw him and he never let us down. The relationship my brothers and I had with him was unique. We seemed to have a bond where, what felt like, mischief behavior would stay between us and Uncle Ken and we'd never have to worry about Mom and Dad finding out. Thinking back, it was all completely innocent but everything we did with him was fun. From a personal standpoint, I was often a very shy kid but never felt that way around Uncle Ken. I always felt at ease around him. He was a very special person to me.

The mention of Uncle Ken makes me think of his bright, happy face with a twinkle in his eye. I consider myself blessed to have known him, Aunt Helen, Patti and Doug. Sometimes as kids the thought of driving half-way accross the country in a car with "roll-down" air conditioning, would trigger some grumbling and an eye roll. However, Appleton always gave Jerehmy, Matthew and me a spark of anticipation. Patti would take us to the A&W then get the box of bottle rockets from the basement. Uncle Ken always kept us laughing with his creative ways to make body sounds. Aunt Helen made us feel warm in her home and Doug's visits were mellow and fun. God Bless you Ken, keep on swimming in heaven!

My Uncle Ken was a very dear, loving person - not only to his wife and children, but to all members of his family, and to his community. I remember the times we visited Ken, Helen, Doug and Patti in Appleton. What I remember most were the times my father, his brother Douglas, and Ken would spend - hours talking and telling jokes and talking about old times. It was such a joy to sit there and watch the two of them, laughing and carrying on like two kids. You find out some interesting things about your parents when they are engaged in conversation with their siblings. The two of them were no exception. I know that since both Ken and my father have left this life, they are picking up where they left off - reminiscing and having a good hearty laugh, just like old times. My heartfelt condolences to Helen, Doug, and Patti. While he is gone, his spirit remains in all of us. He was wonderful person; I was proud to call him my uncle.
