We first met Ken and Linda in the 60''s.  They lived in the apartment above us.  Ken taught me how to make the best potato soup.  Even though we left Shinglehouse we kept in touch and always thought of them as our dearest friends.  Many good memories.  Sincerely Jean Chilson

Uncle Ken was like an older brother to me when I was kid. He was one of the worlds greatest bullshitters ( where I learned ) and a great uncle. Barb and I will miss him dearly. We are praying for Aunt Linda, Mike and the kids. We love you all.

My first and lasting memory of Uncle Ken is of riding snowmobiles. He was always telling stories and could keep your attention for hours. After my Dad passed away, sitting and talking with Uncle Ken was so comforting. It was like I was talking with my Dad again. I will miss him and the joy that he brought to our family. My thoughts and prayers are with Aunt Linda, Mike, Cheryl, Kyle and Kelsey. We love you all very much! Doug and Edna
