    Dear Family Member’s

    First of all I would like to express my condolences to your family in the passing of Ken.

    My name is Timm Kelly and I was one of Ken’s foreman at Clallam County PUD. Ken and I became very close,shared stories and had an excellent time with him.I had an opportunity to travel with him to Idaho.

    Our trip started with a brief visit to his mother’s home where we delivered a load of firewood and a bouquet of flower’s.

    We then proceeded to Idaho where he showed me some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen, I believe I fell in love with Half Way, Idaho!

    Ken was always private about his life, but always spoke highly of his family and would do random acts of kindness for his fellow workers and community members.

    This is what I most remember about him.

    Again, my condolences to his family and thank-you for the time I was able to share with him.

    Light a candle for those we mourn. Into a new life they will be born. Do not look for them at the gravesite. They are somewhere else radiating their beautiful light. They have gone to a new world where there is no darkness, no pain.Their light and essence will always remain. Light a candle for those who have left this mortal place. They are free to travel through time and space. When we think of them, they are near. When we sit in a beautiful garden, their voices we hear. When we listen to a divine symphony, we close our eyes, their faces we see. Light a candle for they have not really gone. With each flickering flame, in your hearts they will always belong. Miss you Ken…..

    Dave and I are saddened by the sudden passing of Ken. We spent a wonderful New Years with him at our home in Campbell River before he left to go to the U.S. We had some great laughs that night, he was a wonderful and very thoughtful man, I know we will miss him alot. He loved to fish up here with Dave and loved the Island with all his heart! It was a special place for him and he was a very special person to us! You will be sadly missed ken, but we have all the great memories to look back on and we will meet again one day!
    To his family, our hearts go out to you at this very difficult time.
