There will not be a service. Contributions may be made in Ken’s memory to Hospice & Community Care of Lancaster.
I met Ken for the first time when his son ken Jr and I started dating, we went to Pennsylvania for a hunting trip. Ken was so kind, very funny and welcomed me into the family with open arms. We spoke on the phone many times over the years and during the holidays, he was always pleasant and had a story to tell. Wish I had the chance to talk to him before he passed. Much time has gone by but his kindness to me has always been in my thoughts, as well ad every one in the family has always been on my mind on a regular basis. Hope everyone is doing well and I’m sorry for your loss. Love, hugs and peace, Lorajean (Lj)
