Date of death:
September, 20th, 2008
Ken was the oldest surviving sibling in our family of 8 children. He was
straightforward, authentic and well known and respected in the
community. He was the strength that bonded our family together. He was
an intensely loyal friend and brother with a lively sense of humor. His
home was always the gathering place for family celebrations and we will
never stop missing him.
Ken was brutally beaten and shot in the head twice by a career criminal,
who was burglarizing his home.

Rest in peace, Ken.
You will not be forgotten
WCCVA provides opportunities for crime victims to share their stories and educate the public about the impact crime has on individuals and society. Please visit our Wall of Memories where homicide survivors share their personal stories of loved ones.
Would you like to honor your loved one who was a victim of homicide? WCCVA invites co-victims (survivors of homicide victims' families) to provide a photo of their loved one and a brief dedication. We will then post both the photo and the dedication on our online Wall of Memories and hang the photo on the WCCVA Wall of Memories, for all those who visit us in Olympia to see.
To submit, please e-mail a digital photo of your loved one and please include the following: their name, date of death, a brief dedication/information about who they were when they were alive. Optional: Include one sentence about the manner of their death. For example, "Victim of a drunk driver with 3 prior DUIs." Please include "Wall of Memories" in the subject line.
