Why is Ken the Center of Your Universe?

My brother, Ken, was the rock of our family when my mother, my older brother and my father all passed away within a year of each other. They had all been patients at St. Francis Hospital in Greenville at times during their illnesses. Ken was health care surrogate for all of them and had to uphold my brother's advance directive to discontinue life support. The team at St. Francis was wonderful. During this year and a half time frame, Ken still managed to stay active in his church, continue to be a wonderful husband and father to his wife and daughter, and continue to be an inspiration to students at Greenville Tech Chatter School, where he teaches and coaches. (He was named Teacher of the Year at T.L. Hanna High School twice when he taught there.) He is the most amazing person I know

I forgot to add that when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have surgery, he came to Florida to be with me for my surgery.

Ken has also won the Golden Apple Award at both TL Hanna and GTCHS! He is definitely a rock star who always has a smile to share and a kind word for everyone.

I have known Beverly for over 40 years. The loss of her parents and older brother, within a very short time, was devastating. During this terrible time, Ken L. jumped right in, and took control and care of his parents and brother when they were ill, and ultimately passed away. Ken L. didn't skip a beat, maintaining his own personal life, never neglecting his wife, daughter, his church, and even his students. Ken L. not only rose above, but rose very high, above the sad family events, and stayed positive. He is truly a role model for his students, his family, and the community. I wish to nominate Ken L. for the Center of Your Universe recognition.

Ken's sister Bev has long talked about him for over 30 years in such respectful and admirable terms. He is the type that shows up, not for a gesture but for the full commitment. It's lovely that he has been there in ways that we all wish we could be if the situations were similar. These everyday kinds of behaviors that let us know we are loved and truly cared for are rare. I'd love to see it heralded and held up for others to see.

A finer, kinder, funnier, more dedicated to God, country, family and Clemson football you cannot find. (But don’t hold that last thing against him! 😁) He is deserving of so many things in this life. I think this would be the icing on his cake of life. He is truly a man of honor and love for his fellow man.

My Uncle Kenny is one of the greatest guys I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was a rock to my Aunt when her only sibling (my father) passed away, and when she lost both of her parents. He’s stepped up to the plate numerous times to be there for my family and so many others. He’s a wonderful, smart, loving, and generous man. If anyone deserves this, it’s him. He’s done more for our family than any of us will ever be able to repay him for.
