My reflection of my brother is what a wonderful caring guy he was. Always happy and smiling. Loved telling good jokes. Worked part time at Indy's TV station with David Letterman. Had a horse that loved him faithfully after he "Tex", cared for him and nursed him back into health. He loved his wife and daughter as the treasures of his life.
His father, Kenneth B. Hale sr. worked to get Kenny's name on the memorial for fallen police officers on duty in Washington DC. Kenny dearly loved his parents and siblings. He wanted to pattern his life after is father.
