Sorry to hear about Ken, Rob. Take care

So sorry to hear about Kenny. I worked with him at the post office and he always made me laugh with a funny observation about life or a joke. Even after retirement I would see him at Hy-Vee and he could always make me smile.

To the Family. I am very sorry to hear of Ken's passing. I just saw him about a week ago in his new car as we passed each other on Kimberly Road. He was a happy great public servant as a mail carrier and friend. We would always talk together at mail delivery time. My thoughts are with you all as a family. Norm and Carol Voelliger

Our condolences to Ken's family.

Ken was our mailman (Super job!) and he was a great friend of Dallas, the Corgi. On 29 June, Dallas and I visited with Ken on Grant St (Ken driving while Dallas and I walked). During our conversation, Ken reached over the door and gave Dallas a treat ... as he had done for many years.

Today, we had to put Dallas down as he was filled with fluid and cancer. So, Ken ... you now have a friend to be with you... you will make a great pair!
