On behalf of Wedgwood subdivision, Ken you will be missed. As an original homeowner he has seen everything from the beginning to being in charge of the park committee, to trustee and so forth. Ken rest in peace with the lord, and so long to a good man.

The last time we had the pleasure of being with Uncle Kenny was at Ellen & Matt's wedding. He was dancing with my daughter, Kelly, and so full of life. He was a fine man and a great example to his children, grandchildren, & great-grandchildren of how to live a full and loving life. Love you, Uncle Kenny.
