  1. Kenny was a clasmate of mine and Jim’s. I went to visit him when his first wife Maryann was ill. He was very caring of her in her last days. He called it “pay back time”. You have my sympathy and prayers. He is now in a better place.

  2. II met Ken and Maryann in 1958. He became our first employee. I corresponded with him until recently and while I didn’t realize it, we were saying good by and telling one another what our time together mean’t to both of us.
    My memory of the two of them was in the early days of our business we had a one room office in which my dad, Ken and I occupied. Mary Ann came in one day and asked Dad and I to leave so she could speak to Ken alone.
    She wanted to tell him they were to have their first baby.
