Ken grew up in Worcester. A 1996 graduate of Worcester Central School, he attended SUNY Oswego in Oswego, N.Y. and has lived and worked as a stone mason in Kansas City for many years, using his talents to create stone work in the area. He would want his children to remember the times they spent together making campfires, stargazing, painting, and playing in the park.
