  1. Carolyn and family,
    We are praying for you all. Ken was loved so much and will be missed by all. The peace and strength of our Lord Jesus Christ is there for you. Lean on Him. Know that you are loved and are in our prayers. Feel a big hug from us!

  2. David, Denise and Tracey,

    My sincerest condolences. May all the wonderful memories you have of your father comfort you now and in the future. I will always remember his kindness to me. He was patient and kind. No matter how busy, he always found time for a little chat and was always there to fix our things — kind of like a surrogate (if you will). We always appreciate that and that you and your family never minded those instrussions. Remember him with love, as will I.

  3. Dear Denise, John, Brandi & Brittney,
    We are so sorry for your loss. Just want to let you know we are thinking of you and wish you our deepest sympathy during this time.
    Love, Norma, Penny, Sue Danielewicz, Emily & Luke Maslyn

  4. Dear Ken, you were a wonderful, caring, and fun loving man. I am honored to have known you! We will miss you very much, the Sands won’t be the same without your smiling face!
    Love, Mary and family

  5. I knew Ken through golfing at Salmon Creek. I work in the pro-shop and have had many great conversations with Ken and his group. He will be deeply missed.

  6. Ken was my dearest friend and neighbor on Arlidge Dr. He was a jack-of -all trades and helped me out with many projects at home. He was a gentle, kind person who loved family and friends. We will really miss him dearly.

  7. Ken was my friend and neighbor here on Arlidge Drive. He is the man who always wore a smile on his face. Always there to help you.
    Ken would always take Carolyn out on Friday nights for a fish fry. I think they did on one of their first dates. He had love in his eyes when he looked at Carolyn.
    I remember his pictures of his ‘bucket babies’ and how proud he was of them. I can remember looking out my front window and there Ken would be giving his grandchildren a ‘ Hay Ride’ on the trailer being pulled by the tractor he was driving.
    We would trade veggies from our gardens with each other. And any one who would visit during the ‘veggie season’ would surely go home with a bag of goodies.
    I will never forget Ken, If I can say the one thing that Ken gave while on this earth was kindness and love to all he knew.

  8. Pop, thanks for all you’ve done and brought to our family over the years. Thanks for being so great to mom. Watch me get a big one for ya this fall. We all miss you.

  9. We are so sorry for the loss. We will always remeber Kenny as he is a very special person to us. Carolyn, you and the family are in our thoughts and prayers.
    God Bless
    The Musciano’s
