When Ken was in high school, he became part of my father’s Boy Scout troop. Ken loved camp, and attended Scout camp both at Luther Lodge on the Boulder River south of Big Timber, Montana, and at Flaming Arrow Scout Ranch near Bozeman. One thing the troop did was to work on a reforestation project in the canyon above Rock Creek in the Beartooth Mountains, and Ken always took pride in that forest he had helped to plant.
For that reason, we will be contributing to plant a tree in his name. --Cousin Cheryl (Elliott) Heser and family

Dear Lena and Family: May the God of Hope give you the fullness of peace, and may the Lord of Life always be with you.
+ Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Niyalich
