The last time I had the privilege to be with Ken and Marcia was in Amish country in Ohio as we gathered with 2 other couples (Oakes & Goldens) in 2017. What a treat to see everyone. I cannot begin to share all my wonderful memories of Ken and Marcia, most made while we pastored in Delaware. He was so kind, gentle, giving, encouraging, and always had a smile for you. His life revolved around his Lord and his family. My heart is sad for you, family and friends, but I am grateful he is with our Savior.

UK or Uncle Ken was a favorite of our family. Whether it was playing cards, cribbage, going to eat at Hereford House or laughing about family stories, Ken was such a joy to have around. We are so sorry we can not be there in person but we know Jesus has Ken in his keeping and His perfect plans are always in motion. May God bring comfort to Aunt Marcia, Jenny, Shawn, Amy, Steve and all the grandchildren. May the joy of his memories and the knowledge of his eternal destiny fill your hearts and ease your pain.
Love, Heather, Wes and Danielle.

What a legacy my Uncle has continued in our family. He is so similar to my Grandfather, and one of my most vivid memories is standing next to him at a service singing Blessed Assurance. His tenor harmony rising up and reminding me of the importance of worship through song. My other strong memory is that of him waving his yellow Pittsburgh towel while yelling at the TV. This was a much less spiritual moment I assure you, but had a similar intensity of energy! Joy, Bella, Tessa, and I love you and your family very much.

Marcia, We are thinking of you and your family and keeping you all in our prayers. We have only know Ken for a few years, but will always remember Ken's strong spirit, welcoming personality and his kindness. He knew what it means to be a good neighbor. Love and Prayers, Mary Lynn and Paul
