My husband and I were shocked and saddened at the news of Ken's passing. My husband, John, worked with Ken at the bus company and always spoke so highly of him. They shared a love of the outdoors and swapped stories of their days in the service. After I met Ken it was obvious why he and my husband hit it off. They were a lot alike. John and I are so grateful to have had a chance to know Ken. We will miss him. Our deepest sympathy to Dorothy, Lonnie and the entire family. With all our love, Debi and John Lunceford
