My prayers go to Ken's family during this very difficult time. I knew Ken and his wife Vicky for many years. I worked with Ken at The Johnson Corporation, now Kadant Johnson. He was a very sincere, honest, gentle and friendly man. He will be greatly missed. Judy (Gilchrist) Mohney of Stayton, Oregon.

To the Boughton Family: We are saddened by the passing of Ken. He was a soft spoken and kind man. We will miss him. We will be out of town and can not attend the visitation or funeral which we regret. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
