Bremen High School
Class of '62 Reunion Events & Activities

A Tribute to Ken Webster

Ken's life and legacy…


Ken was  a familiar face on the basketball court of Bremen as one of its varsity first-string forwards. Basketball was a key part of Ken's life until the very end.  Ken was also an active supporter of our class reunions and helped us publish the 152 page 50th Reunion Program.

Several classmates attended Ken's visitation and celebration of life service on February 4th.  Ron Rodak, Dennis Sweeney (who is also Ken's brother-in-law), Mary Lou (Daly) Pisone, and Rich Kieffer were there for the eulogies given by various family members and a long-time business associate/friend.  Ken lived a remarkable professional life and was one of the top insurance sales producers and innovative "thought-leaders" at New York Life, where he will be forever honored with a memorial in his name.  

A common theme of the eulogies was how Ken dealt with his final days. Those of you who talked to Ken over the past several months know exactly what I mean.  Though he knew his days were limited, he was always upbeat -- and frankly, more worried about how you felt than dwelling on his own issues.  

His wife Donna said that Ken sincerely appreciated all the calls and cards he received from his former classmates and teachers.  Our deepest sympathy goes out to Donna and the rest of Ken's family.


Ken was a true Bremen Brave and he will be remembered and missed by all who knew him.  I have no doubt that Ken is now "resting in peace"!
