Ken taught me much over the years. I always enjoyed his stories and thoughts on life and fun.
I send love and light to his family and friends and will always remember him with happy thoughts
Ken married my cousin Chris. We exchanged Christmas cards for many years but finally met Ken when he and Chris invited us to share a condo in Branson, MO about 7 yrs ago. We loved Ken instantly. He was such a loving husband and adored Chris. Always keeping busy Ken actually washed our car. What’s not to love about that guy! We continued to see Ken and Chris on more cousin reunions over the last several years and always enjoyed his company. We will miss him greatly. Our prayers and sympathy Chris.
Chris, I’m so sorry. Ken was such an amazing person. I will miss him and his love of Pilates.
Sincere condolences, Chris, to you and your family. We met Ken and Chris through ballroom dancing lessons and parties, and always enjoyed seeing them dress up for the Halloween parties. May your many great memories and the love of family and friends comfort you at this time.
Ken was a friend and Pilates partner. We met several years ago when I was still a novice and he an experienced practitioner. His grace in accepting me as a partner helped me both relax and learn.
Recently we reconnected through Pilates and were able to work together again.
I appreciated his depth of knowledge and understanding. Working with him brought joy.
Thank you, Ken
As my favorite cousin Chris’ husband, we got to know Ken through various visits to their home in Richland and our home in Savannah plus vacations together (most notably to Cancun). Ken was like the energizer bunny. Our car ride to Chichen Itza was epic. And here on the squares of Savannah I got to see Ken and Chris dance to the music in our neighborhoods. They made a romantic looking couple. It was a privilege to know and meet him and I know how happy he made Chris. He will be dearly missed. Till we meet again. Love from Lorrie and Kevin.
Cancer is never a good thing but I am so grateful that while my husband Dave and I were walking through the TCCC (Tri-Cities Cancer Center) waiting area during the summer of 2021, I heard a voice saying “Kathi?”. I turned around and said “Ken”? Thus began a phone check-in support friendship which meant so much to me. I marveled at the adventures he and Chris drove, bused and flew to in between his chemo treatments.
He was always optimistic, sharing the adventures he and his dear Grandson Bode experienced. Ken always seemed to find a way to push beyond chemo fatigue to the next Ramblin’ Rover destination, ballroom dancing lesson, Las Vegas vintage entertainment stage show or outing with Bode. Even washing his daughter’s car was something he wanted to do for her. Where he found the energy I do not know!
Even though he didn’t nudge me out of my chronic fatigue and fear of losing my husband during his cancer treatments, he sure tried! I was delighted when he introduced me to Chris at our 55th RHS Bomber Reunion as the mystery woman he had been talking to on the phone during his struggles with cancer.
Chris, thank you for giving Ken that time to help me cope with my husband’s cancer treatments. and thankfully, subsequent remission. You are a such a strong woman and willing adventurer along Ken’s cancer pathway. It was an honor to see Ken and you in the hospital (even briefly) during his last few days.
With His blessings and hope,
Kathi Clark Eder
We will miss you, Ken. Dance up a storm in the afterlife. And, of course, see hello to Elvis.
I am shocked and sad to learn of Ken’s passing. He was a truly great guy with a good heart and a lifelong friend from Willard St. to Marcus Whitman, Carmichael, Col. High and later on. No better friend could a person wish for. My deepest condolences to his family.
Ken was a faithful friend to my brother, Brice.,

To the family of Ken, I met him for the first time at Purex in 1981 bought a tom of candy and nuts over that decade. Eventually in 2013 we worked together for a few years at Energy Northwest.
I am sorry for your loss. He was good people
So sorry for the loss of your Ken, a true gentle man. I remember from many years ago and would recognize him. I did not visit with him in the hospital but know that my prayers were constantly with you, Ken and your family. He will be a greatly missed true friend.
Lyle and I loved the visits to our house in your “cool car”! We were very blessed with your company. I know you are dancing with angels now, but will miss your presence on the 67′ Bomber Reunion Committee so much! Love and Prayers for Chris and your family.
Until we meet again my friend.
My heart aches dear friend. It was a blessing to know you. RIP
Love, Natalie Meeks
Rest in peace dear friend. You are a kind loving soul.
Chris and Family, I could wright a book on Ken and I and our lives. It is hard to loose a person one has known for at least 70 years. Having been born a couple months apart in Richland in the same hospital in another time in 1948. My early-st memories of meeting was in Kindergarten. We were on the School Patrol together in 5th and 6th grade, you went off to one Jr. High and I off to the other. Then met up again at Col High. We again found each other after my 6 years in the US. Navy. It is hard to believe you have left but my dear Friend we will be together again some day, My God be with you Chris and Family May God Bless.
Mike & Carol Tesky
I love you Dad
