My thoughts and prayers are with you. Ken is very special and I’m sure God has a special plan. I will never watch an Indian’s or Blue Jackets game without his thoughts.
God bless you and your family.

I remember Kenny from football at East Knox School, he played with my son Zach and was a year ahead of him in school. He was a super kid, and very well liked. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with all his family and friends.
