Ken passed away October 6, 2019 after a lengthy illness. He wore many hats in his lifetime, but it was his Navy hat he wore the most. A graduate of Texas Tech University, he was an ordained minister, a police officer, and a beloved probation officer. He never met a stranger and was famously known for his quick wit and dry sense of humor.
