Ronnie was a verrry influentail Cousin and Friend since my childhood and was the major inspiration in my conversion to Catholicism over fifty years ago. 
 As mentuioned previously, he was the glue that stuck the whole family together by his staying in touch over the miles that separated us all.
 You will be sorely missed "Cuz"! Godspeed.

Dear Angie & Family...."In the end, a life of prayer is a life with open hands where we are not ashamed of our weakness but realize that it is more perfect for us to be led by the Other than to try to hold everything in our own hands." It was a privilege to have known Ron!
All of you are sincerely in our prayers...Roman & Andrea

I have known Ken for almost 30 years in conjunction with Liberty's relationship with PDU. I can tell you he was one of the most gentle and genuinely caring individuals in the industry. He has left a mark on my soul and what it means to be a good human being. He will be missed. My condolences to the entire family. Dennis Funk, Chief Operating Officer - Plastic Dress-Up Company

To a great man I met through my awards business about 30 years ago, I took it upon myself to call you Uncle Ken. Ken was and will always be instilled in my heart for the gift he gave to everyone, Uncle Ken you are a one of a kind. The awards Industry and your friends and family will always remember you.

Children's Liturgy

Ken enjoyed sharing the Word of God with children during Mass.  Whenever I went to remind him that there were only a few moments remaining until the children needed to reenter the gathering area the children were very much attentive to him.  God bless you Ken and farewell to God's welcoming arms.
