Condolence from Barbara Brooks on March 31st, 2018 7:23 am

It is with a sad heart that I am sending this condolence. Ken was a good friend, a true gentleman, always quick with a smile or laugh. When he spoke, the person always knew it was with real interest. Ken was a member of the Queens County Seniors Activity Group, he attended regularly to play cards with his card family. Ken specially loved the Halloween and Easter Party, we always looked forward to seeing what he would dress up as, and what props he would bring in to entertain the group! Ken, is going to be greatly missed by all who knew him. My condolences to Dwight, Kim, Lori-Ellen,Bonnie and Family. Rest In Peace, Ken, I know you will be remembered by the beautiful legacy of the amazing photos you took, that are in the photo albums in many a homes in Liverpool and beyond ❤️
