I am sorry to hear of Ken's passing.  I remember good times at the Teen Club, especially dances with Marge and Gower Champion there.  Many good memories at BCHS and Ken is a good part of many of them.  I was looking forward to seeing him at the annual reunion.

My sympathy to Ken's wife and children, as well as the rest of his family.
