What unbelievably sad news. Ken was such a nice and pleasant person. A pioneer who shaped the field and was open and welcoming to newcomers like myself at the time. My condolences to his family.

Dear all,

It is with great sadness and disbelief that we write to let you know that Ken Downing passed away last night, peacefully, at his house, surrounded by his loving family.

Ken made numerous contributions to our field and was respected and loved by everyone that knew him. His unique sense of humor, his kindness and his insights will be deeply missed.
