I'm very sadden and surprised to hear this news.   Exactly a month ago, we were still exchanging e-mails discussing about builds.  His last commit to the GlassFish workspace was on 8/3!  This shows how dedicated he was at work.   
I pray that your family will find peace as you are no longer in any pain and suffering.  You will always be remembered!

I am truly saddened by this news.
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Ken on CORBA. He was my mentor and I learned a lot from him. Besides being a gifted engineer, he was a wonderful person to work with. I also got to ride in his really cool car :-)
I will truly miss him. My condolences to you and your family.

I am very sad to hear about the news. I had the opportunity to work with Ken at Sun Microsystems for many years. We had many great discussions on CORBA and his ideas on how to best streamline the delivery of the technology into both the Java SDK and GlassFish. I will always remember Ken as a calm, meticulous and wonderful engineer and a special person.
My condolences to his family and all his friends.

Ken was one of the most talented engineer I meet at Sun. I have fond memories of collaborating with him briefly during GlassFish v2 days. We were looking at clustering and high availability architecture and needed his help with IIOP clustering. Ken was our CORBA expert and knew what he was doing. He was a joy to work with.

May you rest in peace. We will miss you.

I remember Ken as calm, kind, patient. A guy with enormous breadth and depth. And who didn't need to impress anyone of that. He knew.

I remember Ken as someone who was always there for you and Ian. People talk of priorities; he lived them.

And I remember him as straight ahead. What you saw was what you got. No pretension, no bs, no drama, no posturing, but a little dry humor, a sense of who he was.

What is a life? I could hear him remark on that now. A few words; a dry, droll, pithy remark, that later you realized had other meanings.

For me, Ken's life speaks for itself.

I never had the fortune of working with Ken, and, in fact I only met him on those rare times that I was able to travel to Santa Clara for GlassFish kickoff meetings.  However, on those times I definitely got a feel that Ken was one of the good ones. 

My mother in law passed away from cancer in November, and I was very thankful for the help of hospice care.  But I have to say that the decision to go the hospice route was very hard to make. 

Ken, my thoughts and prayers go out to your family, I am sure you are leaving them well loved and taken care of.

I hope your family finds peace in the knowledge that you are in a better place.
