Our sincere condolences to the Carver Family. I first met Ken when I was hired as a new Deputy Sheriff for Wayne County in 1973. For the next several years we helped one another through many incidents which we responded to. He was always a helpful, friendly and kind person. I grew as an officer and always remembered the teachings from Ken. In 1997 I pursued and was elected Wayne County Sheriff. Ken was one of the first to reach out to wish me well. Many have benefited from knowing Ken. He was appreciated and will be missed. Our love, Tom and Toni Maurer.

Karen, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. I am so sorry.

Dear Karen and family,

As a former Lodi classmate (12 years) and a team mate on the Lodi Tigers
basketball team, with Ken(coached by Bill Dunham),I offer you my prayers
