You are responsible for making my dream come true of joining Sun
Microsystems. You may not remember but you was one of my interviewers
and I was extended the offer to join Sun, thank you very much for
believing in me!


I still remember my early days of working with you, Max, Sanjeev
Krishnan, Harold Carr, David Heiser, Peter Walker, Bonnie Kellett, Steve
Nahm, and every body else in the CORBA land. I really enjoyed working with you. Your calm
& composed nature under all circumstances and amazing amount of
knowledge is just astounding and a lesson to everybody around.


Even though we never worked together after that but you are one of the
finest engineers that GlassFish team has ever had and I've ever
personally known. I've always heard great comments about you from
everybody else as well.


May your soul rest in peace and prayers for your family!

Ken was a such a phenomenal engineer - I used to be in awe of his technical expertise in a tremendously complicated area that he handled.
He was a better than phenomenal human being - every interaction (mostly questions from me) were handled by him with such grace and humility. He was fun to be around with as well and I was always amazed that he had deep insights in every topic that anybody ever discussed.
I am so sorry for your loss!- Harpreet

I am very sorry and saddened by Ken's passing as it was way too soon.  Ken was an extremely gifted engineer, generous with his time with his fellow employees, and more importantly, he was a wonderful person.

My thoughts and prayers are with Ken's family.

Linda,

My heart goes out to you an Ian. No words can express the sadness and the shock...
It was a privilege knowing Ken, working with him, and learning from him. I always admired his attention to details and technical excellence, his calm, and not accepting short-cuts. He was a fun person to be around. May his memory be a blessing.

Ken,


You epitomized technical excellence, infinite patience, attention to detail and respect towards your colleagues. You endured so many stupid and naive technical questions on CORBA from me ... thank you for that. I have learnt so much from you and I will always remember you for these qualities.  You will be missed so much


My thoughts and prayers are with your family. May God give them strength to bear this huge loss


Rest in peace my friend

There is no word that can describe such a loss. I always envied Ken's qualities, especially his patience, dedication and desire to help others. I remember working with him back in Cupertino, and it has been a long and interesting ride over the years as we shared technical interests. 
This is a very sad day for us here at Sun/Oracle. He will live in our memories.

So full of patience, so much depth of engineering knowledge and intellect, so very meticulous and detail oriented, and such a friendly, wonderful human being, Ken has touched so many people including me with his humble, magnanimous candor over the years. He will be missed very much as a colleague and friend. Our thoughts and prayers to give your family the courage, strength, resilience at this time. We all join you in cherishing his fond memories. May God bless your family.

I will always remember your pragmatic, no nonsense approach to engineering. I have learned so much from your wisdom and expertise. I am humbled by your patience. Your outlook on life was always refreshing.
I am so sorry you had to be on this end of the randomness of the world.
It has been my pleasure to have known, and worked with you.
My heart goes out to you, Linda and Ian.
