I met Doc my freshman year at UIU, and have so many fond memories of him. The one that stands out the most is in May of 1973, when Melanie, my roomie, and I were packing up to go home for the summer. We had the song "See You In September," blasting out the windows, when Doc showed up and belted out that song like he was onstage!! I played that one for you today, Doc! Your gentle spirit will live on and you will always be in my heart!

Met Doc my first semester at Upper Iowa, through him and a couple other upper classmen was introduced and became a member of Bush. Doc was a gtrat friend to many in our college days and someone you could always depend on. Knew Doc for al.ost a year before I knew his name was Kenneth. After college I ran into Doc at a few K of C functions was always a pleasure to see him. RIP Doc from a fellow K of C and Bush Brother.

We were very sorry to hear of Ken's passing. I've known Ken ever since he joined the Knights. He was the ideal member, always willing to help and very true to his faith. He will be greatly missed.
