I am so saddened to hear of Ken’s passing. He was one of my most favorite patients and I loved taking care of him. I will never ever forget the time he made a special trip to Dana Farber before his surgery to see me. May his memory be a blessing… May we all be like Ken.

Sorry to hear of Ken's passing. I used to know Ken way back in the 80's with basketball. I did last run into him a few years back while he was bartending an event at the Knights of Columbus. Sorry for your loss.

To the McCloskey family, It was our privilege to know Kenny, a kind and loving man. He always had a kind word to say to mom, Jackie, and we will never forget him holding a sunshade umbrella over her head during niece Meghan's wedding. His pride and love for his family was evident in his smile especially when he was with daughter Chatham. We will miss him. Our sympathy and prayers to all of his family and those who cared for him so well during this difficult time. Andrea, Ralph, Hannah, Tom Kumlin & Kelsey Rooney
