Bonnie, my prayers are with you and the entire family of Ken Christy. I met Ken many years ago while I was a carrier from Branch 11 Chicago. At conventions I had lots of questions which Ken patiently answered teaching me all about Unionism. I am truly grateful to have known Ken. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and knowledge with me Ken. I would also like to thank his family for sharing Ken with the NALC for so many years.May the Lord continue to comfort you in this hour of sorrow. God bless you family. Joye Williams Branch 825.

I first met Ken at a Democratic meeting in Aurora. He smiled so brightly I felt a peace with this man. He did what he said he would do a very honorable man . He was respected by every person that I talked to . I'm proud to. Call him a friend. Gods speed to you my friend.

My deepest condolences to Bonnie and the rest of Ken's family!

Ken (and Bonnie) were very dear friends of mine in HS. We were in the orchestra together. Ken played Bass, Bonnie, Connie (twin) and I were on the violins. I was a bridesmaid at Ken and Bonnie's wedding. We shared a lot of fun times. In 1973 my husband and I moved to Colorado and we lost touch. I was happy to pick up with their lives again through FB. Ken will be remember as a man of integrity, a helping hand, a follower of Jesus Christ and a friend to many. He will be missed. RIP dear friend.

Ken you will be missed. When I started at the post office Ken was there to help me through the first few days. If you needed something Ken was there to help. Ken was Union. Ken was Labor. Ken loved his family very much. He also loved his union brothers and sisters. Ken I will miss you. Thank you for who you were. You were one of a kind.

I am so sorry for your loss. I will never forget the White Sox game that I went to with Ken, his wife Kristin & Michael. I've never seen someone go from being miserable to ectastic when the Sox got beat in the 14th inning. Definitely a true Cubs fan. He will be missed.
