    Ken was a genuine ” gentleman”. There are very few left in this world that exhibit the favorable qualities that Ken did except maybe my own father! A great husband and father I am sure. Whenever we crossed paths at family functions, the Rockton fair or some other community event, there was Kens smiling face to greet me. I will sorely miss him and that encompassing smile. He was a great man. A balance of church, community and family made him so appealing to all that had the pleasure of knowing him!

  • Byron Gunby

    To my dear Aunt Ruth, cousins Kimberly and Mark, Randy and Krista, Aliana, Courtney, Cole and Tyler,

    We have lost someone here on earth, but heaven has gained a truly great angel. I will miss Uncle Ken’s smile, his kind spirit, and his way of always making light of a situation no matter how contentious it may be. He had a way with words, and was a lot more level-headed then he’d sometimes lead us on to believe!! :)

    When you find the going gets rough, just think about all the memorable times we had with Ken, and they will bring a smile to your face. Nothing can replace the loss that we feel, but cherishing the memories and laughs hopefully allows you to heal.

    This is not goodbye, but so long for now.

    Our prayers and sympathies are with you all,

    Byron, Simone, Jace and Jayden.
