My sincere condolences go out to my sister Katie Hoover and her family; Diane, Doug and Katie’s grandchildren, Chris,Jessica,Kristina,Allison. Ken’s life was dedicated to his family and service to our country. He loved playing golf and fishing near his home in Florida where he spent his retirement. I had the privilege of spending time with Ken on numerous occasions playing golf and showing me the art of fishing. I will dearly miss him but I believe he will have more golf courses to play and more lakes to fish on in that eternal life prepared for us in Heaven….May God Bless.
