We were best friends in high school and next door neighbors in McKinney. Since he moved back to North Texas from California we rekindled our friendship and did lots of fun and happy things together with our girlfriends and we only lived a few miles apart. I will miss him dearly, his laugh, smile, and singing. My condolences to his 2 sons Adam and Brandon, his brother James, sister June, and cousin Clifford, and their families.

When I think of Kenny, I think of the many, many mil;es we rode together on the Harley's. Or in the nursing home where he loved to sing and entertain the residents. Everybody loved Kenny.

I was blessed to be Ken's friend and met many kind people through our friendship. I wish your son's and grandchildren peace in their heart during this time Ken. I will never forget your kindness. Love, Martina Martina Hoffman, February 20, 2021 Ken Rose, a fine man, lovely friend/classmate of MHS ‘64. Ken loved his family, so proud of his grandkids. He often talked of his travels on his bike, the beauty he had seen. At a class reunion, one year(?), we had karaoke, Ken got up to sing, he was great, beautiful voice, I will never forget his voice, or the person that had that voice. I am very proud to say Ken Rose was my FRIEND. Now, rest assured, Ken has found that special choir in heaven, his Faith led him right to it. Ken, you will be remembered as a friend everyone liked, iwill miss you and the pictures on Facebook. Faye Lindley Terry, February 20, 2021 Many fond memories of Kenneth. He will be missed.
