Memories & Candles
The passing of Ken is shocking and sadens me deeply. We were very close friends in high school, but after graduation we both parted ways to serve our nation...Ken to the Navy and I went to the Air Force. Our careers took us in different directions, but I will never forget the times I spent with him and his family. His house and family were like a second home. Ken had such a wonderful sense of humor and always had

Kenny was a beautiful child, the son of my brother and sister-in law, Kenneth and Rachel McWhorter. He grew into a handsome,talented young man,a gifted athlete, a remarkable leader and role model. His sense of humor was electrifying, his character was pure and undefiled, his love of life undiminished by unexpected challenges. He was, in short, one of the rarest and best gifts that God bestowed on the McWhorter family. With love and prayer, your Aunt Elizabeth McWhorter Harden.

I am floored. I went to an old Diver Web site to find this devastating news. I always considered Ken an amazing person, incredibly funny and a good friend. Please accept my condolences.

From time-to-time over the past 30+ years I have reflected and thought what a great first boyfriend to have had. Kenny was always so damn funny and always the gentleman. Some of the happiest memories at Greenon High were of Ken and his amazing ability to just totally crack me up! This coming from the class clown....
I had always hoped he would be truly happy, to have a family and the children he so wanted, and deserved. I am so

I only recently was made aware of Ken's passing. I am devastated. No better man I have ever known then Ken. We worked closely together at Oceaneering in Diving and shared a similar past in the Navy. The world will be a less humorous place to be in without his quick quips and ability to see the brighter side of any situation. My deepest condolences for your loss.

Mac was a BMC at my first station as a Diver, the USS Grasp (ARS-51). He was a great mentor and friend. My family will say a prayer for him and for his family.

Mac was my LPO. I remember the first day he took the job at Little Creek Dive locker I was late for work. Mac pulled me aside to counsel me for my tardiness. I explained that I was never late and this was just a onetime event. A storm knocked power out in the middle of the night so the next day I was late again...
Mac and I have been friends for many years. He was a great diver

McWhorter Family, Please except my condolences. Ken was a great sailor and a even better Navy Diver. Funny when he had to be and serious when the time came, he will be missed.

McWhorter Family, My sincerest condolences for your loss. Mac was not only a good friend but a great mentor, and taught me so much in the world of Deep Sea. He was a man's man and the epitome of a Navy Bos'n Diver! We shared many good times together and I will surely miss him and his laugh. God Bless, Paul "Doc" Muir

As one of his oldest cousins, I remember the precious little blond boy he was. Such a cute little guy who loved his Uncle Ross and so often went around pretnding to milk the cows. You had a great sense of humor. You have been and will be missed. Rest in peace and thanks for the memories.
