Following retirement, Ken researched volunteer opportunities with organizations that offered services to address veteran homelessness, suicide prevention and education. He found that Hero Dogs’ mission to help improve the quality of life of veterans and first responders through placement and support of service dogs positively contributes to all issues veterans face.
Ken and his wife Shelly are avid world travelers, and also enjoy getting to the beach every month. They also love being with their daughter Melissa, and grandchildren Rhys and Knox. A native New Yorker, Ken loves rooting for the Yankees, Giants, and Knicks. He is also a Beatlemaniac, and loves listening to The Beatles while attending to his two cats, Lennon and McCartney.
Ken is grateful to have an opportunity to support veterans and first responders, and help Hero Dogs deliver its mission.
