Ken was a prince of a guy and of course an excellent student. I taught his sister Betsy earlier. She was a perfectionist, a valedictorian in the class of 1965, but without slighting her in the least, Ken was the more insightful thinker and writer. Sad to see such a nice and taelnted person die so young.
