  1. I worked with Ken for many many years. He was always kind to me in anything I asked of him. He will be missed by me and many others.

  2. Sandra Faulstich (Reidenbach) Now living in Wichita Falls, Texas. I remember Kenny being my next door neighbor whom was a great musician on the drums. Kenny was a good friend of my brother Ferd Faulstich. I am sending my condolences to his family.

  3. Ken was also a railroad buff.
    All around Great Guy.
    When he and my sister married, to use a baseball analogy, she ” hit it out of the park.”
    We agreed that we lost her way too soon.
    It doesn’t matter whether they go soon, too soon or after a good long life we still miss them terribly.
