    Ken and I were classmates and lab mates in dental school. Every student in the class of 1981 benefited from his experience, expertise, maturity, and sense of humor......Kenny would often say " pay attention, I am only going to show you how to do this once... of course he did not mean this. Always accessable, helpful and direct, if you could understand him, you could learn from him. I just recently told my lab guy one of Ken's finishing tips. Sad to hear of his passing, he was a leader to us! Miss you Ken, Robert Marcus DDS class of 1981

    Mary Ann and I enjoyed SCUBA diving with Ken and Connie for 30 years, laughing together, and fully enjoying each other's company. Our living room has many of Ken's underwater photos on its wall - there is a large emptiness in our hearts now and we wish Connie all the comfort in the world.
