Ken was a very enjoyable and knowledgeable person.  He worked hard as a Board member of the Monon Society and served as Vice-president.

Ken enjoyed being a Monon historian and specialized in gaining as much information as possible regarding former-Monon employees.  He developed a very large spreadsheet containing information about hundreds of Monon employees and folks knew to contact Ken when new employee information surfaced.

He will be missed.

I'm very sorry to hear about Ken.  He was always very kind, friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic.  Gone far too soon.

I am saddened at the news of Ken's passing.  His diligence in working for our group, and particularly the database of former employees, was most admirable.  I personally appreciated working with Ken at the dedication of Monon Trail Elementary in Indianapolis.

He will indeed be missed.
