Oh man... I'm going to miss him. He was a straight up, no bull kind of guy, who would help you out to any extreme. His stories on subs were always fun to listen to.

Jimmy - if there's any word on a memorial, let us know.

It's been awhile since we talked.  Didn't know he was sick.  Had some interesting conversations with him though we never met in person.  He will be missed.

Sad indeed.  Sad for the community as we are losing the older established members. Some who for me made the SQC experience memorable.    

R.I.P. Ken. Prayers for his family.
