Condolence & Memory Journal

Ken was a great mentor and friend. He helped me grow as and engineer and as a person. We worked together to solve a lot of technical challenges, and I enjoyed being around him. He will be missed.

I am sorry to hear of Ken's passing. I worked at B.F. Goodrich in Akron with him and could always count on him for advice on what materials to use and how to stick them together. I particularly remember travelling with him to Germany in the early '80s where he helped us complete an important project with MBB (now Airbus). He was very supportive and a great man to work with.

We are very sorry to hear of Kenny's passing. I was fortunate to work with Kenny for many years at Goodrich Aerospace. He was a great friend and a very ethical businessman. He was highly regarded by the engineering community.

I will remember Ken for being the kindest, sweetest man I ever knew. He adored his wife and delighted in spoiling her with roses. May his soul guide the angels who took him to heaven to keep a loving eye on his family.
