To the family, I was sad to hear of the pasting of your Dad. He was a wonderful person. I will always remember how nice your father was to me (as well as all the family) when I would visit our grandparents. I know God is welcoming him home and I know he is in a better place. Stephen R Greer

I was lucky enough to have met Kenneth 6 years ago when I married his grand daughter Leah. He was a great, loving man. I enjoyed greatly hearing his stories of WWII and the planes he was in. I feel honored to be part of his family and all my love and prayers go to everyone as we mourn the loss. But it is nice to know that Grandpa Greer now flies again, this time with the angels.
