Barb, Tim and Andy so sorry to hear the news of Ken's passing...what a joy to have known him. I met Ken years ago...pre Tom Reese days in the Boscov's advertising department and then again at Tom Reese. He was very talented and created our dental lab logo that we use today. My memories go beyond work too...always running into your family on the baseball diamond. When the kids played for Wilson and Mifflin...what fun we had. My heart is full watching the video...his family was everything! Please accept our condolences and our family prays for healing. We know Ken is looking down from heaven with that beautiful grin, though short, a life very full of the most important thing, LOVE!

Very sorry to see this news. Ken was a loving husband and tremendous baseball dad to his two boys.

I have such lovely memories of Ken. We worked together at Reese for many, many years and one of the best memories is when Ken and several others (Tom, Dan, me and others) would go to the "gas station" for lunch. And it was literally a gas station that served food. We got cheap hot dogs, burgers and grilled cheese sandwiches for next to nothing. We would tell stories and laugh. And it was fast. It was a great break in the day when things were strong and crazy in the advertising agency world. But I lucked out again when I was able to work with Ken just last year where he created a new logo for Berks Counseling Center and I made him a bit batty with numerous changes. We had a chance to have coffee together and many conversations over the phone. He was not only extremely talented but always made me laugh. I told him he should have been a standup comic as he was quicker on his feet than anyone I know. I loved his faith in God and I loved how much he simply loved his family. He was such a wonderful example of humankind and so happy I was able to tell him that when we last talked just three weeks ago. Barb and Tim and Andy, he loved you more than life itself and he was a better man, husband and father because of it. God bless you all. Let's celebrate his life as I feel he is celebrating his time right now with the Lord and knows you will all meet again one day. Until then, he's watching over all of you lovingly and happy. xo

Barbara, Timothy, and Andrew, We were shocked and very saddened to hear about Ken. He was an extremely talented individual, and had a great sense of humor that made us laugh hard many years ago at church events or on the golf course. But more important, he loved his Lord and Savior Jesus, and his family. His devotion to God and family was an example for all. God Bless You Ken, may you now rest in the loving arms of Jesus for all Eternity and enjoy the Peace that passes all understanding.
