Kenneth was a classmate of mine in the academy and a close friend. We helped each other out through the academy and often ate lunch together. He had a great sense of humor and can still recall his voice and laugh. During our first year out from the academy I was called to active duty in the military and sent to Vietnam. When I returned to LAPD two years later I learned that Kenneth had passed away during that time. I was so sorry to hear that. When I went to Washington D.C. I looked up his name at the Police Memorial site and had a photo taken of me pointing to Kenneth's name. Its been 44 years since we graduated from the academy and I still think of him now then. Rest in peace my friend.
