Steve and Gerri Johnson from Waukesha, WI

"Ken was a very dear friend. We shared many a glass of wine and a good meal with him over the years. He was our "event" planner and we saw Chicago in many different ways because he always had a great idea - whether it was a bus tower, a boat on the river or lake, or just a walking tour. He especially loved his family and being with them. And he was so proud of Tim and Mary and what they were accomplishing. We know he will always be fondly remembered and sorely missed by his family and friends. Rest in peace Dear Friend."
