I worked with Ken (aka. Byrd) for many years in Greenville SC. He was a kind and gentle man with a wonderful sense of humor. May you find peace and comfort in God's grace during this difficult time.

Please accept our deepest condolences. Ken was an exemplary man, devoted husband to Marcia, and a very dear friend to many people, including us. Ken would always bring great joy to everyone around him with his pleasant personality, his unique humor, his heart-felt concern for your welfare, and his radical support for his Clemson Tigers. The love story between Ken and Marcia has no equal, their unique meeting, their dating years, and their married years. It was truly God’s hand that guided them both. God bless you Ken Wham. We will miss you, dear friend. Say hello to Marcia for us. We love you both.
