Ken will be highly missed, however, in our hearts and memories he will always be there! Just like the road trip Ken, Pete and myself took back in 2007. I learned more about being a biker from him than he could of ever known. He kept asking me how I was doing? My reply was great!(I was hurting so much that I didn't want tell him). Ken would just smile and say ok! About 3,000 miles into the trip Ken walked over to me smiling and handed me a sheep skin seat cover he had made for his motorcycle. Made the rest of the road trip a lot better on the old seat!! I enjoyed the friendly disagreements we had about NASCAR drivers and races.
My best regards to the family and friends of Mr. Kenneth Attaway.

It was great sorry at hearing the passing of Mr Ataway. He was one of the dearest Christian brothers. We had met him seven years ago in his alley as we were remolding a rental house. We invited him to our church at BCF. From then on its history. A deep love for a brother began. He was faithful to attend and enjoyed the company of many friends. Looking forward to all the hugs and love that we all had for him. He will truly be missed, but we know that he is in His heavenly home; waiting for us.
