Ken always had a smile and was unflappable. Many years ago, Ken, Holly, and I took a bus trip to the Kutztown Country Fair.
It rained the entire day. We had a great time wearing our ponchos and looking at all of the crafts for sale. Never once did Ken complain about the awful weather. He enjoyed the day as much as we did. That really sums up who Ken Taylor was. He took each situation and made the best of it. He loved his wife Holly and their family and all the students who were lucky enough to have him as a teacher. He will be sorely missed.
