RIP "ken572" - Passed Away 9/22/2015

Post by azbrianallen » Fri Sep 25, 2015 7:10 pm

Hi everyone,

My name is Brian Allen, and my Dad (ken572) has been a member of this forum for quite a while.

He passed away on Tuesday after a tough battle of heart disease & lung cancer.

This is his profile link:

I want those of you who knew him, to know how much he respected & talked about the members of this forum.

My Dad loved your creative minds... and willingness to share ideas, concepts, and knowledge.

I want to thank you for being a positive part of my Dad's life.

:-) Brian

Brian,

It is very kind of you to take the time to let us know about your dad. I am very sorry to hear of your loss and ours. Your dad had an amazing ability to research a question and provide numerous links and resources to the group members here. His posts were always positive and enthusiastic and he was always one of the first to welcome a new member.

His contribution here was great, both in content and style. I will certainly miss hearing from him. I will pray for peace for you and your family. Please tell them all how much we appreciate your dad.

Peace to you all,

Bill C.

No! Brian... So sorry... Ken touched so many that will never be known. He was a very good man here, someone I looked up to for his contributions, guidance, and insights.

I will miss him.

Truely depressing to here that Brian. A prayer for your Dad, and all the family and friends.

He was so helpful to me and many many others, especially the way he would chase down information for us. He wasn't asked...he just found it for us.

As Said by others, a herd of us here will truely miss him.
