  17. You were the greatest gift to mommy and daddy on Christmas Day, 1957. The little boy who stole their hearts and continued to make them proud throughout your life. I hope you know their hearts are filled with so many memories. Life sometimes lputs us on a Journey that no one may understand and it’s only for you to walk that journey. As the sunrises each morning we’ll know you’re here. When the sunsets and darkness comes, the night may be hard but when we look up at the moon and the stars we’ll think of you. May your heart be at peace and may you know you will always be loved. Every morning as I start my work day I think of you as I sit at the desk that took hours for you to put together. Fly high.. we’ll be waiting for a sign from you. Forever loved .. forever missed. Heaven gained the most kindest, gentle Angel.

  18. The sudden passing of a good and kind person is the saddest thing of all. Ken was a great co-worker who always made me laugh, sharing cat tales and grumbling about the sheer nonsense. I loved our talks. You’re up there with the angels; Rest in Peace. You will be missed. Sending prayers and sincere condolences to his family.

  19. candleKen was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Always had a kind word to say
    We worked together for probably 10 years through out our career.

    I’m in shock to hear this news and my heart aches for his family but I know he is in a better place
    Rest In Peace my friend .. until we meet again xo

  21. May you be in a happier place, enjoying the flowers and birds up in heaven. Loved talking about the flowers and birds with you and working with you for many years. My condolences to your family and friends.

  23. All my condolences to his family. I loved talking food and cooking with you. You started my listening to Andrea Bocelli and I thank you for that.

  24. candle“ If you didn’t care what happened to me & I didn’t care for you, We would zigzag our way through the boredom and pain, Occasionally glancing up through the rain, wondering which of the buggers to blame and watching for pigs on the wing.”
    Thank you for all the memories & all the music, Rest easy uncle Ken

  25. candleDearest Godfather..I know my parents chose you with care to be my godparent because of the light in your eyes and the love in your heart❣️
    You were always a gentle soul, with an amazing smile and we always had some great conversations. I have such a huge hole in my heart right now and our family has endured such a huge loss. I’m thinking of all the what if, could of, and should of’s right now, but what I should be thinking of is how can I, I need to, and I will. I will forever have your smile engraved in my heart and I will never forget you and all our family’s amazing memories growing up.

  26. I am so sorry to hear about kens passing so early in life during this crazy time.I have known ken since 1995 we started working together in various units throughout our career with the IRS. Ken was the kindest and funniest guy I ever met with great stories. He was my cubby buddy in OIC and was there for me offering kind words during that time to during my divorce. Then we also worked again briefly from 2009 till 2012 and he still always remained the same kind, funny , helpful ken with great stories I”ll always remember. This world lost a great guy but Heaven gained an angel to watch over his family and friends. So sorry for his family, prayers and condolences 🙏 ken will be surely missed by all that knew him!! Many knew him and are heartbroken. Irs as well lost a great resourse in losing ken. Can not say much more than that. So sorry for your loss to the Johnson family!

  28. ken and me work together throughout our career at the IRS since 1995 through various units here and there. He was one of the kindest souls and funniest 👦 always reaching out to help another person whether in work or if you needed to just feel welcome. He was a pleasure to be around and will be greatly missed by all. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Prayers sent and condolences.

  29. candleWe said our final goodbyes to you but it still does not seem real. I’m waiting for you to come home from Costco. Or for you to come inside after working in the garden. I can’t believe I will never hear your voice or spend time with you again. We would have so much fun! Whether it be going to a basketball or baseball game or going to a concert at Jones Beach or going out to dinner or taking a day trip out East or just hanging out at the house. We truly enjoyed each other’s company. You were not just my stepdad, you were my friend. My pal. It pains my heart and my soul that I didn’t see your pain. I hope you know how much we love you. And appreciate all that you did for us. Thank you for choosing us to be your family. We have so many amazing memories over all these years as a family. I wish we were able to make more memories. Thank you for helping raise me, Bryan and Jason. Thank you for loving Mom. Thank you for your kindness with Nana when she got older. Thank you for becoming a cat person. Every now and then please send us a sign that you are at peace. You will forever live on in the flowers I see, the music I hear, the food that I cook and in the love that fills the house that you made our home. You are so loved.

They were usually your holiday specialty and you would always remember me and how I loved them. You would bring some to work and stop by my desk and surprise me with them. It made my day!!!….I read everyone’s memory of you and you were loved by so many and will be missed by all of us. Sending prayers to the family.
