  • Tim Pavek says:

    Ken was always generous and kind, genuinely cared about people and had a wicked sense of humor! I always felt welcome and accepted in his presence. It is now up to those who knew him to carry a piece of Ken forward and share it with the world. I’ll do a hula dance in your honor this fall (Ken just Danny K spit his mai tai all over an angels wings!). You will be missed.

  • Tim Pavek says:

    Great man with a legacy of love

  • Lisa Rainbolt says:

    I remember him as a VERY patient man (even when we had a bit of a mishap with his Porsche πŸ₯Ί) and didn’t always follow the rules and curfews 😞. He will always be remembered fondly by those of us who knew him and who were lucky enough to have had him in our lives. Sending love and hugs to you and your mom and family. 😒❀️

  • Casey Christopher says:

    I have always felt like family around both Ken and Bev. Love them to the moon and back… not gone forever, just until I can shake your hand again. God I love this family! There is no other like them.

  • Michelle says:

    Today you’ve been gone for 2 weeks. I miss you Daddy. Love you more than you ever knewπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ˜‡πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ˜’πŸ˜’

  • Alli Pavek says:

    Opa was always so loving and fun to be around. He was the only grandpa I ever really grew up with and even though I wasn’t blood he made me feel like a member of the family. He loved to tease and make fun of me and had the most infectious smile. Im sad he’s gone but I am so incredibly happy I got to have him in my life for the time I did. Rest well Opa. Love you

  • Nancy & Tom Sternad says:

    We are deeply saddened by the passing of our long time friend, Ken. We have had so many wonderful times together, and these memories will live on in our hearts forever. Ken was such an amazing person and we feel blessed, to have been his friend.
    Until we meet again………
    Our deepest sympathy to Bev, Michelle, Rick and family. We love all of you.

  • Ellie and I have known Ken for the fifty years since he joined the accounting firm serving us — and we immediately realized that to know him was to love him. He was a prince — authentic, understated, thoughtful and wise, generous, and incredibly fun. He loved cars and was recruited by Bob to join the Porklite Gourmet Rallye Team (“Better to be sick than waste good food!”) for our annual play-weekend — and that is where we had the privilege of Ken sharing Bev — his stalwart navigator — with all of the team members. Rain or shine, decade after decade, Bev and Ken showed up, became stalwarts and even rallyemasters, and added immeasurably to our fun and fellowship. Ken, as the only CPA among us, became our “bagman,” responsible for all money management, handled of course with aplomb as the rest of us relied on him. We adored Ken, appreciating how he and Bev took care of each other over so many years, and we suffered with him as he so bravely confronted his persistent health problems and final decline. We will miss you, dear friend, and our hearts are with Bev, Michelle, and your family. Ellie and Bob

  • Art and Lory Gardner says:

    Ken was absolutely one-of-a-kind. He was passionate, a solid friend and confidant. Despite his fight with cancer he never gave up and was always there for his beloved family.
    While he will be missed he will never be forgotten.

  • Michelle says:

    I love and miss you Dad!! One week until we celebrate you. You have such amazing friends that are reaching out and taking care of Mom. You are loved by a lot of people. You are always in my heart. πŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ’™

  • Debbie Petersen says:

    Opa, we always had fun teasing one another…we could both dish it AND take it. You were very welcoming to my family and boys. You are missed dearly yet I take comfort in knowing that you are no longer in pain. Be free with the angels ❀

  • steven j cherwon says:

    Very sorry to see this email. I first met Ken in 1975 when I became employed at Boas Boas and Kaplan in San Francisco.

    Ken, myself, Norm and Bob became accounting parters in 1978 at a firm in Larkspur.

    Ken was a prince of a guy and I never knew anyone who could eat a very small piece of paper in the quantity that he did.

    Rest in peace my friend.

  • Norm Capper says:

    I grew up professionally under Ken’s wing and he was a wonderful person to work with. I can’t believe he is gone. I will miss him and remember him fondly.

  • Michelle says:

    Tonight is 4 weeks since you left us. You are always on my mind and in my heart. The funniest story I keep getting reminded of from your friends is how you chewed on little bits of paper torn out of your tablet. Lol
    I love and miss you Dad!! 😒😘

  • Lisa Rainbolt says:

    Sending love and prayers to Bev, Michelle, Rick, Zach, and Becca. Thinking if you and hoping that your memories and all of ours of Ken will live on for years to come and give you peace and comfort when you are needing it the most. A sweet, kind, funny, patient man who will be remembered by all for his wonderful qualities. ❀️
