He will be missed, always wondered what Ken was going to do next, kept us all laughing! RIP!
Deepest condolences to brothers Mike and Bob, and sister Renee. Very sad to get this news. Didn't know he was ailing. Saw Ken a few years back on a visit to NH, and talked to him last winter. Played many a round of golf with Hack, drank many beers with him when we were young and stupid(and not so young)and had many, many laughs over the years. Kenny always had a good heart and I will greatly miss him.
Pat W's comments fit Hack to a tee. From St Johns through NHS he was a good friend to all and always ready to lend a hand. He loved a good story and lived as he wished albeit to short.
Over the years on NH visits it was always good to see a Life long friend. He will be missed. Condolences.
Renee,please accept our sincere condolences at this painful time .Remember the good times you have had with your brother over the years.We will keep you in our prayers.

Michael and family - I'm so sorry to hear about Kenny. I knew both of you in high school.
I will always smile when thinking of my youthful experiences in HS and when he spent 1 year with me in college at
plattsburgh state.He became one of most [popular guys in our fraternity that year despite unable to join due to a small technicality of not going to the college. The volkswagon with no defrost/heat in the winter was also a
memory everytime my window fogs up.
His success at P&S pools showed his skill at dealing with people and if he lived in a normal climate he would have been a wealthy man selling pools & supplies. I am sure his kind nature will be greatly missed by all.
For the past 35+ years Ken was a wonderful brother,uncle & son to the Clifford Family.My Mother Bette,sister Ellen & nephew Jason are forever grateful for his warm & kind friendship.
Kenny was there to console our family at Moms service this past March.
