Thursday, August 31, 2017To Ann, Jennifer, and Christian August 31, 2017 The Facilities Department of Methodist Hospital would like to extend our sympathies to you on the passing of your husband and dad Ken. We are sorry we could not attend the celebration of his life. Ken came to us as our boss but left as our friend. We in the facilities department have been through many leaders who left us bruised, battered, torn and upside down, but Ken left us with a sense of pride and accomplishment, for the first time we felt like we meant something to someone. Ken made it a point to acknowledge all of our high points while encouraging us to work harder on areas we needed reformation. We as a team knew we had a genuine leader who cared, not a leader who was in the fight for only self-gain. Almost daily he would say “This is an amazing place.” He laid out the plan of attack, we followed and trusted he was leading us to success, and he did. He led us right into our accreditation. He always had the eye on the prize! Throughout our year together Ken became a part of our FAMILY. This department was so sad when he announced he was at the close of his assignment and would be returning to Connecticut. The wind removed from our sails. Our department now back to uncertainty but Ken reassured us we would all be OK! Each of us had a special place in his heart, and him in ours, always taking the time for chit chat and a story. He made us smile every day! Ken was an exceptional read of people, and he could lead the most stubborn in the right direction. Announcing to the Facilities department that we had lost Ken was one of the hardest things that I have had to tell the shop. The looks on the mechanic's faces were pure heartbreak and sadness. Each one of them took a minute to reminisce about the funny stories and encouragement Ken left them. We all had a “Remember when” moment?” There have been many tears shed in this hardcore shop the last week. My office flooded by contractors and other department employees asking “Is this bad news true?” This shop wears a suit of armor, every one of us guarded, but Ken was the one who broke through it. He often would kid us about our Midwestern Charm and sometimes lack of. He will forever be a part of this shop; his picture will go on our wall as our mentor and our friend. He will remain in our hearts and you, his family, will always be in our thoughts as well as our prayers. Tenderly may time heal your sorrow Gently may friends ease your pain Softly may peace replace heartaches And, may warmest memories remain. Thinking of you and sending prayers. The Methodist Hospitals North Lake Facilities Department!

Tuesday, August 29, 2017Dear Mrs Egeberg, I worked with Ken at Methodist Hospital and reported to him under his direction. I wanted to share with you how much I enjoyed hearing from Ken about your family and kens life experiences. Ken always spoke highly of his Daughter and Son and obviously was a very proud Dad and Husband. I was honered to have worked with a person that spoke so feely about his faith in God. We supported our faith in the facilities department and always started our department meetings with prayer. Ken shared how fortunate we were to be open with our freedom of speech with regards to our faith as it relates to open prayer in the midwest. When I left Methodist Ken supported my decision and gave me his personal cell phone number. Ken offered his professional experience and his friendship if I ever needed someone to talk to or needed advise. I sharing this with you because I wanted you to know that I feel I was fortunate to have worked with him and to have know him professionally, and as a friend. I'm offering up my prayers to God for you and your family during this difficult time. God bless, Respectfully, Frank A. Stojak

Tuesday, August 29, 2017I had the opportunity to work with Ken recently at The Methodist Hospitals in Northwest Indiana. He was very experienced in technical matters, but also a very experienced leader and manager. He was personable and generous with his experience. One of those people from whom I learned a lot from in the relatively short time we were coworkers. Our world at Methodist Hospitals benefited greatly from his observations and calm thoughtful leadership. My sympathy and prayers are with Ken's family and friends at this time of unexpected loss.
