Saying Good Bye to an Old Friend

Late this past Sunday afternoon, a tragic freak accident occurred taking the life of one of my grade school, high school and neighborhood friends, Ken Reeves. To be honest I just don't know how to turn off my tears of sadness and disbelief, but I am sure my sadness is no where near the grief and pain of loss being felt by both Ken's family and wife Raychel, of whom Ken just married in October of last year. My sincere and heartfelt condolences go out to them and I pray that they find the strength they will need to get through this most difficult time. 

Ken worked at AccuWeather for the past 29 years as a meteorologist and recently served as Vice President and General Manager of AccuWeather, Inc. Television Network. Here is the tribute compiled by Ken's coworkers to remember him and express their feelings about the loss of wonderful colleague and treasured friend.

If you were to put a face to the phrase "Great Guy" that face would have to be Ken's.

Rest in peace my friend...rest in peace.

Third grade class...Ken is second boy from the left of the back row and Henry is the second boy in from the right of the back row. I am the girl in the green dress.

  4. I'm at a loss for words to comfort you at this terrible time. Just know you and Ken's family are in my thoughts and prayers...

  5. Barbara: What a shame to lose someone so young. We have remained close to a lot of friends that we went to high school with. Jerry and I both graduated from the same high school in 1957. When one passes on it is like losing a close family member. My heart goes out to you and his family..Judy
