Ken was best friends with my husband, John, in college. (He may have more to say about all that) But he and I were also were friends--he was a very happy-go-lucky guy! We lost touch after he left college, although he did cross paths now and then with John. Ken's obituary stated, "He worked for a number of years in California for Metropolitan Wire Corporation, where one of his clients was an up and coming Steve Jobs. After moving to Tulsa, Ken got interested in power paragliding. He became an instructor and established a business to sell power paragliding equipment. He also worked for Mazio’s Italian Eatery in Tulsa for eighteen years."

The obituary states that Ken was an ordained minister for the Worldwide Church of God after college, but he never was. And he remained single, so there are no survivors/descendants.
