I'm not sure if my original reply posted. I don't see it. I'm so happy to see all the people who came to know my dad. It's comforting ready all his comments and posts. Trust me when I say little red cute mowers and Bolens are not the only thing my dad bought excessively... I've got about 5,000 straws 2,500 light bulbs 1,000 batteries and more. Lol I really do appreciate every thing every one has been saying about my dad, it means so much

Hey y'all im Ken's daughter. I'm sitting here crying reading all the kind words every one is speaking of my father. I never new he was such a big shot in the Tractor World. I'm not sure if I can give out my email address here but I'd like to be in touch with people who knew him on a personal level.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! Only knew him from the forums, but he was an outstanding fellow! He will be missed by many!

I did not know your father, but due to him being a garden tractor collector and spending time on the different garden tractor forums I am sure he was an inspiration to many and offered lots of help to those in need.!

Very sorry for your loss.
