It was at church that I first met Ken and Jean shortly after they moved to Jonesborough. Ken was a kind and pleasant man, willing to help, devoted to his wife Jean, and loved the Lord. Ken was a great conversationalist, and his dry wit and warm smile will be missed greatly. He is at rest now with Our Savior, Jesus
