I remember Ken from years ago when I was a member of the Capitol Chapter shortly after I bought my first Buick. Ken was a very enthusiastic Buick guy.

I am saddend to learn of Ken's passing and extend my condolences to his family and friends.

OK Buick People: I knew Ken and his late wife Mabel. At first Ken and I didn't see eye to eye on things and yet for some reason he grew on me and I grew on him. I purchased many cars from him as well as parts. Ken was old school. He had a great sense of integrity, loyalty, he REALLY knew his product and he usually said what was on his mind.

I would have loved to make a play for his Bonery when he offered it to me but my car lot was going full blast and it was 2 hours away from my house. In stead I visited with him as often as I could weather at the yard, his house or on the phone. He was a knowledgeable, interesting and fun guy.

I hadn't spoke with him since he moved but for a few times and I will miss him. Mitch

I never met Ken, but I wish I had. He sounds like a real Buick guy. My condolences to all who will feel this loss personally.
