  1. Lois- My sympathy to you and the family on the loss of Ken. Certainly one of the good guys and there was so much more good work for him to do. My fondest recollections of Ken is how he was always so up and always had such good advice when I had scout related or insurance questions. I too will sorely miss him and his big smile.
    Sincerely Al Briggs.

    It is with profound sadness we extend our condolences to Ken’s family. Ken held a special place in my career when he was the senior partner at Quality Claims. As a young entrepreneur, Ken supported me in my business and career with his wisdom and by introducing me to his numerous customers. We shared many interesting and humorous files while investigating claims. Thank you Ken and rest in eternal peace.
