Ken was a great man and an excellent teacher! He was at North High School when I was a student there in the early 1970s. I was the sports editor of our student newspaper and I spent all three (3) of my summers with him during many of the days when he printed for the district. He had a lot of common sense and was also really smart about a number of matters, especially printing. It was obvious to me he loved his wife and ids because he spoke fondly of them quite often. i probably knew him as well as I knew any of my teachers and I had a tremendous amount of respect for him both as a person and as a professional. Perhaps the most accurate word I could use to describe him is GENUINE! I seldom acclaim such a descriptor for an individual but Ken is worthy of it; he was a very unique individual! Rest In Peace, sir and know that you lived your life extremely well!
