I worked with Ken at Schnucks/Walgreens in Fort Smith when he was a manager in the early 1980's. He was a caring person and a very good manager. I did not realize he was a local until I read of his passing in the paper today. He was such a professional in all areas of the store that I just assumed he was transferred here already knowing all the business. I am so sorry to hear of his death. He was a fair, fun and good man.

Ken, it’s hard to believe you’re gone, but you have left behind so many memories! Some funny & some so sweet! We’ll miss that big smile & your voice. Know you’re with your Dad now & that gives us comfort. Rest In Peace, sweet brother-in-law. We love you, Peggy & James

It’s time for you to go catch the biggest fish in that heavenly lake and play your best golf game ever!
Will miss the good times, that winning smile and most of all you!
Fly high, Ken. You will forever be in our hearts and memories.
