Ken was my freshman roommate. He was a vocal conservative. We had great conversations about church/state well into the night. He would laugh that my views now would be more in line with his as expressed then.

I served as Ken's Co-JA in Williams A during our junior year.  He was an amazing athlete-scholar who was majoring in Political-Economics, taking very difficult English novels classes,  taking the required pre-med programs and playing football.  He had a great sense of humor as we engaged with the freshmen class of 1966and, as Dave states, was incredibly conservative and anti-religious.  He explained to me how he would "rev up" Dave with some of his thoughts during their freshman year with a those smiling eyes of his.  

That year was very exciting for the two of us.  It was one not to be forgotten.  In the Fall of 2002 we agreed to work with one another to serve the freshman but also to help one another get through this important year.  We fulfilled both of those commitments and it was with great sadness that we will not have Ken with us next Summer but his joy and scholarship WILL be with us.

We miss you, Ken...

Ken was President of Zeta Psi --  his suite was just down the hall from my room and hosted hours of bridge. Mary joined in quite often when she was on campus. In 1966 when our son was born at Presbyterian Hospital in NYC, Ken came by to meet him -- before I got to the hospital to check and see how both mother and new son were doing. I guess in those days, resident doctors in training did not get very much sleep!

We enjoyed the casual baseball games played across the street -- now where all the dorms fill the space between Route 2 and 7. Ken had a vicious swing to right field-- and was a wonderful coach for those of us less talented,

We played football together, and I had great admiration for his intellectual and his athletic abilities--a true colleague and friend.
