Ken passed away on May 8, 2012. Ken and I were friends through Madison Elementary, Gray Jr High, and Mount Tahoma. After graduation Ken went into the Army and I joined the USMC. After military service I only saw Ken a few times and then lost contact with him. I think he had moved to California for a time. I only learned of his death a short time ago, and am very sorry that we hadn't been able to keep in contact.
