Default Ken King from Vette Essentials has Passed Away!!

OMG I cant believe this.. I was just talking to him on thursday about my interior. He has got to be one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
My sincere condolences go out to his girlfriend and family.
It is a VERY sad day for the Corvette Community..

I knew Ken well, even had the opportunity to work on a few cars with him including mine. He was a wonderful person.

I hope all take a few moments to say a prayer for him and his family.

God Bless

Mike

It almost seems unreal.. Anyone who has ever met him knows that there probably isnt a nicer man out there.

I'm not sure of the EXACT situation. But it seems he had a sudden massive heart attack.

And having never dealt with the man at all I still give my sincere PRAYERS to Kenny and his family and friends, and may the GOOD LORD grant him eternal peace in his KINGDOM and give his family the strength to persevere and the guidance to place their faith in GOD during this time of tragedy and grieving for them!!!

Terriblly sad news. I was lucky enough to be a customer of Ken's and can say that he was top shelf stuff all the way through. My most humble condolences to his family and loved ones. RIP Ken.
