He believed in giving them all a second chance. Including his current canine friend "Jessie" that survives him. Ken loved people and he loved nature. He could always strike up a conversation with anyone which lead to a great friendship.In his retired years Ken did nature photography. He has taken some stunning photographs.
Special thanks to Dan and Kay Breunig and Family who stood by him at the time of his hospitalization, his time in hospice and at his time of passing at home.
"We'll always remember that special smile, that caring heart you always gave us, your being there no matter what can never be replaced, you will forever be in our hearts and never forgotton."
