Ken Hoover, RIP

We just got word last night that Jen’s uncle passed yesterday after a long bout with cystic fibrosis.

I didn’t personally know him very well, but the few times I did get to spend time with him, I enjoyed his company. He was a big man but he gave off a gentle vibe, and he smiled almost constantly, telling stories on Jen when she was younger with a twinkle in his eye. I’m told he loved a good party, and in true fashion, after a long night of laughter and fun, he left our wedding late with slurred speech and a six-pack of beer in his hand.

Ken Hoover, RIP

    and, he also loved babies and children. I didn’t get to see that side of him until I had my baby. In that blurry time (doped up with Vicodin for the c-section) I vaguely remember how happy Uncle Ken was to hold my baby. 🙂 He wouldn’t even let my Aunt Mary hold him….Aunt Mary just reminded me.

    Yes, RIP Uncle Ken. He will be missed.
