Comments

  1. Ken was the best college room-mate a person could ask for. We had 3 great years together at OCC. I shall miss him.

  2. I can confirm Bud Ross’ comments with respect to Ken. I had two years with him in the same suite at Oklahoma Christian. We had so much fun together as friends. He will be missed. “To be absent from the body is to be at home with the Lord.”-
