    I remember fondly playing on our championship football team back in 1963 with Kenny. He always gave 100% during practices and was a true “team” player. I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to talk with Kenny at our last class reunion; he’ll truly be missed by all who knew him.

    I remember playing football with Kenny at WHS. A great guy with a great smile who was one hard worker. My sincere condolences go out to his family

    Truly sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. We had a few classes together back in the day and had a good time together. Ken and I were born under the same sign a week apart so his passing has special meaning to me. Condolences to his family and all my best wishes. You are not alone in missing Ken.

    Sandra, our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Kenny and I grew up in Fox Lake and attended high school in Fox Lake and Waupun. I enjoyed reminiscing with Kenny during one of our class reunions. Great guy and I know he will be missed dearly.

    Let me offer my condolences to the Gibbs family for the loss of Kenny.   I only knew Kenny through football at Waupun.  I got a chance to talk to him at the 50th football reunion.  He was a great part of our team.  Always upbeat and positive.   I will always have fond memories of those times and of Kenny.  Again, let be offer my deepest condolences for your loss.
