"Through his coverage of the planning and staging of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, Ken brought great honor to his profession. He was a gifted writer and knowledgeable reporter whose work reflected a commitment to accuracy, integrity and fairness. He took the time to thoroughly understand his subject matter and became a great student of the Olympic Movement, both nationally and internationally.
When necessary, Ken could be as tough and tenacious as a bulldog in chasing down a story. Through it all, he upheld the highest ideal of his profession: he protected and served the public interest.
Ken was a proud father and grandfather, and his children possess many of the same attributes that made Ken successful. We extend our condolences to Ken's family members and his many friends."
