Dear Joy and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Ken was a really nice man with whom I had the pleasure of working with for the majority of his career at Immigration. I was his Supervisor for part of that time and he was always so fun to work with. He was always so polite and easy to work with and such a gentleman! He talked about you all the time and was always so proud of you all. I miss that sweet smile of his, and although I did attend his Service today, which was beautiful, I apologize that I was unable to stay for the graveside service, and have the opportunity to meet you. God bless you and comfort you during this time.

My sincere condolences to the Meyer Family. I worked with Ken at the USCIS ImmigratIon Office from 2008 till he retired. We had daily contact and many times we discussed the various Air Shows.
He was a great inspiration to me for I had about 25 yrs of service and retired with over 30 yrs. My prayers are with the family.
