Virginia and all the Tuttle Family I am so saddened to hear that Ken has been called Home. He was one of the sweetest most compassionate men I have ever known. He has been a family friend for as long as I can remember. I will never forget when my mama passed away he came with Chuck to take her to the funeral home. When he came into the bedroom where we were he made a beeline straight to me and gave me a huge hug. Ken was very special to all of the Hundley/ Saunders family for many decades. RIP Ken you will be missed.

Virginia & family - I extend heartfelt sympathy at Kenneth's passing. I honestly respected & loved Ken. He always treated me in such a way that made me always feel he was happy to see me. He actually made everyone feel that way. I was so happy when he & Virginia married. We've lost a Southern gentleman who was just a 'good guy'. I understand your loss & your heartbreak. Prayers for you all. Love & prayers, Brenda Canaday
