For over 12 years I worked with Ken at Kamp Oil. Many people will miss Ken dearly,. None more than his children and family. Ken had a wonderful personality, a great sense of humor, a strong work ethic, and a notable love for his Lord and Savior. He loved hunting and spending time with his family. He was a wonderful supervisor, a caring man and a dear friend. While a fellow employee notified me of his passing, it was after the funeral. Prayers of comfort for his family and the sure hope of eternal life with the Lord.
