Craig Gordon

I cannot refer to Ken as was. Ken is a beautiful human being. He tried his best to include my father, brother and myself in his family's life. He would invite us for Passover and Rosh Hashanah dinner every year. He even invited my brother and me to his son Aden's baseball game one year. Ken is a warm, caring and very thoughtful person that you wanted to be around. He wife Eileen, Rebecca, Noah and Aden has followed his example. I will miss him dearly, Your cousin Craig

To the Krakman Family

Its with disbelief that we are writing a tribute to Ken. Its tragic to lose such a valuable caring father, husband and friend. He will be so missed. I wish you strength in your memories. We will be there in support

I worked on our project with Ken at Nokia for the last 3 years. I have worked with many excellent engineers over my 38 year career, and Ken was one of the best. His productivity and his commitment to quality are what every engineer should aspire to attain. With all the churn we've had at our company, we all had to consider whether we should look for opportunities elsewhere. I chose to remain largely because it was such a joy to work with someone who was so motivated to get the job done the right way. He will be sorely missed.
