Ken was a great man and always made me laugh even when he was trying to be serious.  His smile and laugh was contagious. I think my favorite memory of him is how his face lit up when he spoke of his wife, his children,  and especially his grandchildren.  Sitting on the porch watching the grandkids play in the yard and he would smile from ear to ear.  I will always hold a special spot for him in my heart as with all the family. 


My payers and love are with you all during this time. 


Rest in peace Ken


Love, Brooke

Our deepest sympathies to you, Pat, and your family.  We have many great memories spending time with Ken.  He was a kind and loving man who enjoyed family and life.  May the memories you shared together bring you comfort in the months ahead.  God bless you all.


Sincerely,


Patrick & Patty Bradley
