I hate having to post this in non-shop talk, but I guess this is the only place where it belongs.

I received an email tonight from Woodbutcher's wife, letting me know that he passed away on the 21st after a long illness.

Ken was a great woodworker and a wonderful person, and he will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.

He was a “TOP DRAWER” Lumberjock! A fine example for us all.

He will be missed. My Condolences to His Family.
