From his facebook page -
Ken passed away peacefully yesterday after a valiant fight against malignant melanoma.
One of the truly decent things that Mark Andrews did was to create a fund to help Ken (a Moderator here). Mark was going to row up a river near his home
and got people to pledge so much per mile. Unfortunately the weather was against him at the time so it didn't happen. But it did draw awareness to Ken's plight and managed to raise quite a bit of money for him, I believe. https://www.facebook.com/kenneth.strong?group_id=0
