“ It is with great sadness that I write this. My memories of Ken go back to Calf Pen Meadow, when he was in eighth grade. He was my student and a budding basketball star. He was the captain of the team and played a key roll in winning the East Shore title.
Over the years our paths crossed professionally in the Milford School System. I would like to express my sincere sympathy to the Walker family.
A very sad day. Kenny and I grew up together as great friends. We played little league ball together, went to school together, and played softball together as adults. We even worked together one summer during our college years. I always considered him a great friend, teammate, and athlete. He is definitely one of the greatest athletes Milford has produced, and in fact, I consider him the best. R.I.P. Kenny.
