Central Penn Unit has lost a very active member of our club this week.  

Comments from Dennis Ober, Past President Central Penn Unit.  

  Wow!! What a shock... Ken was one of the first member along with his brother John, to welcome Carol and I into the Club. I can remember Ken always there to make a Rally successful. Many times he would make alot of the meals for the get together. His wisdom and friendship were next to none. He also served as President of Central Penn. He and Jean were so Proud when their Grand daughter was running for Queen at WBCCI International Rally. Ken has done so much to make the club a better Airstream Club.

        Every time I would call with a problem or answer he would take care of it. When Ken went to Travelers Rest in Florida I ask him to look out for an Airstream with my wants and wishes. It wasn't long before I got the call that he found one. So off to Florida we would go to pick it up. He always had the Welcome mat out when we got together.       

         At Travelers Rest he knew everyone and would always get a site for me when we went to Florida. After 20 years in the Club, I was up for President, What a Honor to have Ken swear me in at my Installation Banquet. I am so Thankful for that.

   So I just want to say Good-bye Ken to a Loyal..Helpful..Caring..Friend ..We will all miss him !!!  Obie
