My deepest sympathy goes out to Kenneth's family. He was a friend and classmate of mine all through school, and I always enjoyed seeing him at our high school reunions. He will be greatly missed. Prayers and blessings to the family. Carol Lee Hitchcock

So sorry to hear about Kenneth's passing. I knew of him from cattle meetings, but got to know him when we served on the soil and water board together. Kenneth was a fine man. Sincerely, Chuck
