It's been many years since I had the pleasure of hanging out with Ken "Big Boy" Bernek. I started jumping at Skydive Tecumseh and Ken quickly became a good friend. We jumped together, road-tripped together, and partied together. Ken was a really good person and I agree, I never saw him EVER in anything but a great mood. He spread positive energy wherever he went.
I moved away and didn't keep in touch with many people from up North, but I was incredibly saddened to hear of Ken's passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of his close friends and family. I'm sure this is a big loss for many.
