    Ken is gonna be sorely missed, but never forgotten. From the first time I met him (’81) and every time after that, he was always genuine. Always asked about my family, made me laugh, gave me shit at work – even stole my lunch occasionally. He was a true friend, over the years we discussed everything. Whether good or bad, he was always willing to help and give advice. My last text to him was on his birthday, he simply replied “thanks”. Whether it was work, socializing , or anything in between, you knew Ken was there, and he was always involved – never standing on the side waiting for something to happen. He was a great guy, huge loss. All my best to the Armstrong family and all of Ken’s friends.

    I feel honored to have had Ken’s freindship in the few short years we crossed paths some 20 years ago . We would meet occasionally after that and it was always great to see him . Ken was always encouraging me to have my own business if thats where the passion was . Thanks for sharing a part of your life with me Ken you will always be remembered for being the one who obviously enjoyed life . I’ll do my best to pass it forward .
