From Good Friend, Bill Hicks
I’ve been very close to Ken over the years and we served together in many locations. He will be missed. Our hearts and prayers go out to Ken’s family. Ken only had one child, Keith and three grandchildren who he was extremely proud of. My three girls went to school with Keith when we lived in Lahr. Marg was a good friend as well and our heart goes out to her. Another RCOC Apprentice gone.
