I will fondly miss the Cardinals vs. Cubs rivalry exchanges with Kenny. We had much fun chiding each other over the years. I will also miss picking up a few bucks from him from our annual Series wagers.

Ken was a wonderful guy who I appreciated from a personal and business standpoint. He was always there to help.

You are all in our prayers.

To my sister Anne, my brother-in-law Steve, Portia, Niccole, Karl, Mary Lou and all of the Herzings – I am sorry to hear about Kenny. He always had a smile and a welcome for me whenever I would see him. When I told Nicholas and Danielle about Kenny’s passing, they were deeply saddened as he always joked around with them. You are in our thoughts.

Love you all –

I am in California. So sorry I can’t be there. Your father was a great guy and I always enjoyed my time with him, especially our trips to Palm Springs and Italy. You were all lucky to have him in your life. Hope to see you all soon. Miss you, Ken.

I was so sad to hear about Ken. Will remember him fondly when I worked at CSB at the Bucktail Village branch. We used to talk often about him knowing my dad Jack Gier from Ridgway. Ken was a salesman that stopped at our little grocery store on the west end, my dad told me some stories about Ken also, close to fifty years ago. Also will always remember him as very quick, smart, always wired to the max business man and gentleman. My thoughts go out to all of his family.
