Many memories of my Uncle Ken & the Christmas Eve parties he & Aunt Carol would host for our entire family!🎄I enjoyed listening to him talk about his ski trips, an avid passion for them. ⛷ He also once gave me this beautiful cutting knife (which I still use all the time), which he sharpened & engraved, “To Michelle, Love Uncle Ken” 🔪♥️ He will be missed.

Ken and Carol and their boys were close neighbors when all our children were quite young. Our one- block- long street had over 20 kids under the age of ten. One of our fondest memories was getting the street blocked off for a summer neighborhood block party. Guys pulled their grills and wading pools out onto the street. We did a huge pot luck, ate good food and the kids went nuts.
Ken and Carol were always there to help neighbors and share a couple of drinks. We had such good friends there.
Our deepest condolences Carol and sons. Ken was just an all around good guy. Our prayers are with you that our Lord will wrap you all in His arms and comfort you.
With prayers, Pat and Paul DiMercurio
