  2. My condolences to Ken’s family. For a number of years, I had dinner once a month at the Independent Italian-American Club in Hamden with Ken and other friends. He was a pleasant, highly intelligent gentleman, a delight to know. May the memory of his fine character console his loved lines in their time of grief.
