Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Hill Family, I met Ken thru Sporting Clays @ WSC over 17 years ago. Ken kinda took me under his wing shooting at the Club. I worked with him years ago clearing out new shooting stations. He had amazing strength hauling out trees we had cut down and moving the Traps. I have told this story to many people. Maybe 7 or 8 years ago during our Wednesday night Summer League, Ken shot a 48 out of 50 w/ his Benelli pump on a rather challenging course. While a couple people have shot perfect 50's, this was truly the best round of Sorting Clays I have ever witnessed. Ken never missed an opportunity to point out a missed target always making shooting fun. I enjoyed his banter, humor & friendship and miss him greatly as I know the other guys do too. Sincerely, Scott Spidle
