Ken attended Christian Brothers Academy in Syracuse, NY, and the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. He retired from IBM, Fishkill, NY, as a civil engineer.

Ken had a passion for music, art, travel adventures, and every New York sports team. He read The New York Times every day, enjoyed writing his own short stories, and creating his own artwork. He loved going to the movies! So many fun stories of fishing on the Finger Lakes and in Canada with his dad and brother. Special memories were made on the tennis court with his sister.
