Ken’s love for flowers and gardening shows from his home to his office. Family vacations have left many special memories. He loved spending the winters with Dea at Siesta Key, one of his favorite places. Most of all he enjoyed his "coffee breaks" at the Olympic Flame. The hearts of everyone who knew Ken have been touched forever. He will be dearly missed by all.
