Ken was one of my dearest and oldest friends. I looked forward to the times that we could spend together on my trips through the mid-west. I miss him and would have liked to have spent some time with him at the end.

Kenny was one of the oldest and best friends I had left in Quincy. He always kept me posted on friends. Over the last 10 years or so, we would meet and have a beer. I will miss him much. My prayers are with his family.

Kenny has been one of my best friends for over 43 years, I will miss him dearly. We both have gone through good times and disappointing times together over the years. Kenny had a proud heart and sole.

I started working with Kenny in 1972 at Schemmings Clothing store downtown Quincy. He also worked for Forbes Clothiers within the Quincy Mall for many years. He was the best Men's Clothing Man I know and enjoyed helping other people with there clothing needs. For about the last 20 years, Kenny has worked part time for me at Chalk Box, Inc., Quincy Billiards. I have always respected Kenny as a friend and an employee. He was one of those people, once a friend, always a friend. He enjoyed playing pool in his younger days and always treated the sport with respect.

My condolence to his family, he is in a better place and we will meet again.

Just had to add that Kenny was a good friend to Sam Genenbacher, going to pony or chariot races with him and helping on projects. Kenny was always quick to smile and play basketball at our house while living nearby. He was also a father to his two sons, Craig and Kelly. Craig also wrote his father while Craig was in the Navy mid 1990's. Both boys visited their dad whenever in town while Kenny worked at Forbes in the Mall. He is being graciously remembered for the good times.
