Guestbook

  1. I was saddened to hear of Ken’s passing…. for many of us that did not know he was ill it certainly is a shock to the soul. I knew Kenny from a young age… He was a close friend of my brother and he and Kenny hung together in High School and then both attended Wartburg college together.. They were like bothers in their own right…. The one thing about him was that he seemed to always have a smile on his face and as a young kid, he always treated me with respect and dignity. I wanted to say that I am so sorry to hear of Kenny’s passing and may God bless his family. Jon K. Lazar

  13. To The Family of Ken Haberman, Ken was a good man. He gave me a chance to learn the construction trade, and do things I wouldn’t have even attempted, otherwise. He never scolded anyone for trying and then making a mistake….I did it on a few occasions just to test him :-). I will always remember the hard days of work building houses and doing odd jobs, and then the fun times (afterwards) on the water. He was always one to invite you out on the water for a day in the sun. I know I said it to him whenever I could but thanks Ken for the teachings, and the fun times! I know you will be watching over us all from above.
