    Ken was amazing. I only got 8 years with him, but they couldn’t have been more perfect. We made each other laugh every day. He was intelligent, funny, thoughtful….he was my divine gift from God. We were both grateful God put us together. I got the better deal, he was more than I ever would have hoped for in a partner. Ken was living proof of God’s ridiculous generosity to me. I love you Sweetheart.

    I met this amazing man 10 years ago when I started my friendship with his beautiful daughter Heidi. Through those years our friendship grew and I spent a lot of time with Ken while caring for Heidi during her illness. Walking in the door of his house I always heard a “Hi Hon” along with the biggest hug. The friendship with Ken and Deb continued to grow and I always looked forward to my time with them. He was a man of incredible integrity and gave enormous love to those around him. He was so full of wisdom and had so many stories that I loved to just sit and listen too. He will be so missed by the Dunshee family as he had become family to us. I’m so thankful for the time we had with him and thank God for bringing him to our lives

    I have known Ken from the very first days of our lives. We could see each other’s house through our back fence and bedroom windows. He was the best man at our wedding in 1967. Through all of these many years, we never had a bad moment. We had not always kept in constant contact or lived close to one another, but there was no doubt that we were always friends! Family was everything to Ken, and Ronnie and I sympathize with all of you who are his family and his everyday close friends. We all know that he was one of the good ones! I am sorry to have to say goodbye to Ken, but I think he lived his life to the fullest and he is in a good place now.

    I have known Ken since grade school and have always considered Ken to be a very special friend. He was the nicest friend I’ve known and will forever be missed. He experienced some tragic losses in his life and was fortunate to have found Debbie these recent years.

    You are missed, dear friend, God Bless, Bill

    I had the pleasure of working with Ken almost 50 years ago. He was the district sales manager in California for a regional airline and I was his secretary. He was a wonderful boss and FUN. Of course, he was quickly promoted and moved on to a larger district. We lost contact until recently when my husband and I moved to the Northwest and were able to re-establish our friendship through emails and eventually met for a reunion dinner on the coast near Seattle. It was a wonderful evening and my husband and I are so grateful for the time we were able to spend with Ken. We kept invited Ken and Debbie to visit us in Salem and spend some time in our guest house but after reading all of the messages from his many friends, I realized he just didn’t have enough time to share with everyone. We were so eager to meet Debbie because he always told us what a wonderful person she is. We are so sorry for this tragic loss, Debbie, and hope to meet you in person soon. Wyn and Linda Robertson

    I met Ken many years ago. I will miss you Ken, you were such a blessing to me. My life wouldn’t be the same without you in it. I will cherish the many memories and never forget your big smile. Ken knew how to live his life in faith, thru faith. He was taken from us all way too soon. He was a man of integrity, great wit, compassion and great love for life which he lived it to its fullest. And now that he’s gone I know he has found a place right where he belongs, in heaven with God. May you Rest In Peace Ken. I will miss you.
