Thanks, for informing us about Ken's
passing. It is with great difficulty for me to express my sadness
with the passing of my boyhood friend.
Ken and I attended church together as
boys and my mother was our Sunday school teacher. My mother has
pictures of Ken and myself and others during those early years.
Ken and I as first and second graders
would have our hot lunch and then we would see how many times we
could race around the whole school building before the bell would
ring for class. As you can imagine Ken won most of time, however,
there were times when in those early years when I actually beat him!
. I remember Kenny and myself and some other first graders, when
the new gym was built, throwing mud balls against the gym to see who
could throw the mud balls the highest AND DID WE get in trouble.
Those mud balls stuck for a long time!!
When Kenny or I would get picked on by
older kids on the play ground we would team up and as you can
imagine when Kenny and I teamed up nobody else had a chance (in
those early years).
When ever I could get into town, being a
farm boy, we had baseball games across the street from Ken's early
home in Hebron, just a block off of Summit Ave on the brickyard
empty lots, these are great memories. Our teams were usually made up
of Ronny and Ken, Terry Weige, Kenny Magstadt, the Scheck boys,
Sayler boys or who ever happen to be there.
One of my favorite memories of Kenny is
when we were juniors and Hebron was playing Glen Ullin at Glen Ullin
in the district tournament; Kenny was playing with Mike Kuhn, Donny
Remfert, and others and they were behind by 6 points with 43 seconds
left, Hebron managed to win the game in triple overtime. Ken made
some great plays and was a fierce competitor.
I and our class will miss Ken at our
reunions. Don, feel free to extend my sympathy to other members of
the class of "72".
