    I was quite shocked. He hired me at Orkin, I thought he was a great person to work for, and to know. I feel very lucky to know such a person. He will be missed. Out loss

    My deepest condolences to all of Kens family and friends. I only knew Ken on a professional level, but he was always a very energetic and delightful person. I will be praying for you in this difficult time.

  • Al Murray Posted January 11, 2018 4:22 pm

    So sorry and shocked to learn of Ken’s passing. Worked with Ken for many years and found him to be one of “the good ones”. When you worked with Kenny, as I called him, you were working with a friend. I’ll be holding a picture of that big broad smile of his in my head while remembering all the good time spent together. RIP my friend.

  • Brent Boles Posted January 12, 2018 11:25 am

    I am sorry for your loss and have the entire family in my prayers. Ken and I knew each other for 20 years through the pest control industry. During that time Ken and I learned together, laughed together and solved many problems over adult beverages. I know Ken will be missed by all that he touched.

  • Aric Schroeder Posted January 13, 2018 8:35 am

    Ken was one of my first mentors in the pest control industry. His accomplishments in sales spoke for themselves. Ken and I shared many good stories and laughs. I’ll remember him fondly. My condolences to Kris and Ken’s family.

    My thoughts, prayers and love to you and your family, Janet and Jerry.
