  1. All I know is that Ken was living in the midst of a Great Family. Many people who were touched by him, reached-out to Others, whom were Touched by Him personally.. or by someone in his Family. They have touched me. I thank him for that. And he’s right UP there with Max Yasgar (the Woodstock farmer) who would share his Field with a million people if they needed a place to graze. (or cook hamburgers). I salute Kenneth D. Staschke. A man who did it all, and made others feel good in the process.
