I only knew Ken after he had retired from IDOT, but he was always eager to talk about his time there and share some stories about how some of our ways of doing business had come about. I'll miss you, Ken!

Lot of good times with Kenny and Marilyn. Late nights with dominoes and pizza! Miss him here at Seasons where Kenny loved the dessert table. Prayers for Marilyn and family.
