    Worked at Hoffman while Ken was there, never actually worked with him but did talk to him. I know he played guitar as i do, so we had that in common. I did not know him deeply but i liked him and sensed a gentleness in his spirit. My sympathies to his family, peace.

    A very special person lost too soon on this earth. Uncle Ken made anyone he came into contact with laugh and smile. His absence will be a great heartache but I know he is dancing with all of our Family in heaven. A special thank you to Lori & Cindy for taking such wonderful care of him and all the preparations for his day. We send hugs and our deepest sympathy to his family in Minnesota!

    All Our Love,
    Michael, Katrina, Tanner, Kirsten, Nicholas & Brie

    I knew him as my cousin Ralph, and the times that I was around him, I aways sensed a peaceful spirit within him. I had an opportunity to hear him play the guitar. I was very blessed by his talent. Ralph I know you are no longer with us here on earth, just know as my cousin I was very blessed by your guitar talent. I know that others were also blessed.
    May the peace of THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY surround your family as they go through this trying and sad time. I’m sorry not able to attend, but that I am praying.

    My most special uncle…
    So so many amazing memories with him growing up, especially when we would get to have sleepovers at his house and when our moms would pay him off to babysit us and we would ALWAYS listen to The Eagles and put on a dance show for him! I remember music always being present during my time spent with him and of course, his beloved blue Firebird from way back in the day(mid-70’s). Rest in perfect peace, Uncle Beebe…until we meet again. I love you.
    Your niece, Lisa

    I knew Ken many years ago. Took care of Justin & Nick when they were little. Ken got me in Hoffman when the boys no longer needed a care giver. He was a great father & friend. So sorry for your loss.
