    I always admired Ken's passion for the outdoors, and his vigor in getting others to share that passion, especially young people. As a media person, Ken was always very helpful to me in covering the history Big Game Show, and I will always remember that and be thankful for it. His dedication to Hunters for the Hungry caused people to dig deeper into their pocket to support this worthy mission.
