Ken passed away just before noon today, Saturday, October 31, 2009. Ken was a good friend to many of us here on the Ship. I'm going to deeply miss his big heart and ready wit.

Please keep Ken's wife, the Sturdy Wench, in your thoughts and prayers.

When I was new to the Ship, Kenwritez treated me very well. I enjoyed his sense of humor and wit.
I will miss him greatly.

Ken was one of the most intelligent and interesting posters - someone who was always interesting and fun to spar with. It's a shock to hear this. My thoughts are with his family. [Votive]

I am shocked, stunned, and not the slightest bit pleased. (And that tautology stands as evidence.) Rest with the Father, Kenwritez, I know I will be one of many when I say I will remember you with fondness and respect. May God let the Sturdy Wench feel his presence and his comfort.

JB and I are just overwhelmed with sadness. I've got to compose myself as I write this.

The one thing about Ken was just thinking about him always made me smile. And being at a shipmeet with Ken was like being in such a happy place full of laughter. I remember Estes Park and the house we stayed in (thanks to our Marmot) He was writing his wedding vows on the big table in the dining room (a few days before the event, mind you!) and Welsh Dragon and I found that Ken LOVED to shop. So we all went into town and modeled on all these dresses for Ken because he wanted something special for his bride to be. Shipmates, that shopping trip was a laugh a minute, as the sales clerks thought we had landed from another planet, but we came home with a really nice dress. [Biased]

Ken has now gone on to glory, I know that the angels are laughing and smiling with him around. Yes, "promoted to glory" is just perfect, Foaming Draught. And God Bless You, Ken in your place of glory and sympathies to our California shipmates who knew him so well. [Votive] [Tear]

Goodbye Kenwritez, my friend.

Goodbye to your gigantic wit, and your enormous humour.
Goodbye to your sly re-understanding of what I actually meant.
Goodbye to toasting recipes, and your advice on cooking my enemies (and their pets).
Goodbye to reading your beautifully-crafted prose.
Goodbye to looking forward to meeting you in person, finally, to cement all that we've shared as friends.

Farewell my friend. You will be missed.

I can only echo this.

And then shed some tears for his beloved Sturdy Wench with the most incredibly beautiful eyes (and when he posted the honeymoon pictures, no one could argue about it).

I hate to think of those eyes crying now.

RIP, Ken.

I have a kitschy magnet on my refrigerator that Ken sent me after his trip to Hawaii. When my son was seriously ill several years ago, Ken sent him a ball cap from a local university. He was a sweet, thoughtful guy who loved life, and if he was your friend, he was a friend for life.

It's not easy sailing on the Ship when you're in the minority -- the conservative minority, that is. Ken was good company, though, and his voice was heard loud and clear on more than one occasion.

His passion -- besides his bride -- was writing. He was a big guy stuffed full of words and ideas, and he loved to turn a phrase. He also loved to cook and shared so many great recipes over the years.

Ken would call Tortuf every so often and threaten a visit to Nashville. I'm really sorry he never made it. A hug from Ken would be something great to remember.

The only thing he lacked was a clean bill of health. It just seemed he couldn't get everything working right at once. I'm sorry he couldn't overcome his problems.

Goodbye, Ken. We hardly knew ye.

Kenwritez won the Simmie for Best Post on the "Let's Offend" thread, when he voiced his outrage via typed interpretive dance. I laughed so hard I wept - it was one of the funniest things I'd read online. I'm sad to lose a stellar shipmate of great wit, intellect, humour, and moral sense.

Prayers for the Sturdy Wench and for his other family members. It was a privilege to have trod these boards with him.

Ken, my friend, I shall miss you more than I can possibly say.

You always brought a smile to my face when I saw one of your posts. They were well written. They shone through the morass of mediocrity as the product of a keen mind and a sharp wit. And while you could skewer pomposity and poorly thought out positions better than anyone else here, you ever remained the embodiment of congeniality.

Hearing your voice on the phone meant I was in for a good long chat with a treasured friend.

The Ship is a lesser place without you and a better place for having been graced with your presence.

Save me a rocking chair next to you. We will have a long time to visit in Heaven.
