Guys like Ken are hard to come by. Something about the age of wisdom. A true southern gentleman. I will miss his smile and his presence.

Ken was a landmark at the Reserve. I always loved seeing him and chatting before teeing off. He would ask how my game was going and share a tip or two on how to make it better. He left his mark on my heart and will be missed.

To the Family of Ken, I am saddened to learn of Ken’s passing. Since we are avid golfers and got to know Ken well at the Reserve. He always was a gentleman with a smile and good word for the time. We always admired his mild mannered ways and his love for the game of golf. We will always remember him as a cherished friend !

When we moved to The Reserve in 2016 and started learning golf , Ken was always very nice to us and gave us some tips about our golf course. He was always a very charming man . We’re sorry to hear about his passing and knowing him, he’s with the Lord in a better life.

My 15 years at the Reserve doing what I love - golfing - were made so much better by Ken. He always had a "hit 'em hard" attitude and was very interactive with the members. But - when it was your tee time it was not unusual to have Ken drive over to the putting green and say with authority "you're up next Mr. Barker - let's GO". A true gentleman - may he Rest In Peace.

I want to tell you how much I appreciated Ken and his servant spirit. Mimi and I have been at The Reserve since 2004. Ken was one of the first staff members that I met when playing golf. He ALWAYS remembered when he retrieved my clubs from the bag storage area that I liked to have the towel on my bag wet in order to clean my clubs during play. That meant so much to me. He ALWAYS greeted me by name with a smile and also sent his best to my wife. I will miss him greatly. My love and prayers to his entire family. I can't wait to see him again in heaven.

I met Kenneth not long after his wife passed. I came to clean his home, and shared many a conversation with him. We would talk mostly about sports, Golf Football the most, and shared a team in the Atlanta Falcons. The last I saw Kenneth was just before Christmas. He was playing Merle Haggard and seemed in great spirits. Saddened to hear this news, and wish friends and Family condolences. Bye Ken
