  • Ken is cool.  The last time he was down here in Louisiana he was telling me about going to all these race car events last year.  Top fuel….led to a conversation about seeing Artemis I launch from the Space Coast in Florida.  His travel gear was pretty well thought out in that Subbie of his.  This was on a New Years Eve and it was a good discussion.  The years before he became an Honorary Bob during a get together in the winter out at Brian’s.  I enjoyed catching up to him when he came down.  On behalf of the Trosper family in LA, our deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
