Got to know Ken when we both had joined the Naval Reserve unit there in Tyler during our Senior year.  During that time and after graduation a group of us used to go by his house after drill meetings and his mother would fry up a bunch of chicken for us.  Boy could that woman could cook.  I remember times were tough for them since his father, who was a race car driver down in Houston was killed, but they didn't show it.  It was a happy home.
