I would like to offer my sincere condolences to Ken's family & friends.


I met Ken once, while picking up a Bolens dump cart for Brian.


We didn't get to spend a lot of time together, but Ken was a very friendly and humorous man.  ....I took an instant liking to him.


We could have talked for hours, but Ken had to go to a job, and my wife was waiting in my truck for our 2-hour ride home.


Again, I extend my sympathies to his family!

I also want to offer my condolences to the family. I've met Ken several times and messaged back and forth a bit. He, D-Dogg, and I got to go see Kbeitz's collection after the PA Plow Day one year.

You could't meet a nicer guy and he will truly be missed.

No more pierced pool jokes.

My prayers go out to Ken. I did not know him on a personal level but I knew him well on the forum. Truly a great guy. Through other's on the forum I've ended up with a few of his parts on my tractors over the years as folks here sell, trade, buy from each other. Thoughts and prayers to Ken and his family.

So very sad to hear this news.  I always liked Ken's post's on here and I had the privilege to meet him at PA plowday a few years ago.  He was a very nice man.  To Ken's daughter and family my sincerest condolences.
