R.I.P Ken. I’m so sad and chocked to receive this very sad message. We have know each others since we were teens when you, your sister Darlene and your parents visit my hometown in Norway where your grandmother came from. My parents were good friends with your parents and we became good friends that summer and had lots of fun. A few years later I visit you and your parenst on Long Island. I also visit and stayed in Darlenes apartment in Brooklyn. Then many years went by till we got in contact again in July 2016 on FB. We met again in New York City just 3 months ago, after 42 years. I’m so glad I got to see you again! We didnt know that would be the last time.
Thanks for your friendsship and for all the good times we shared. You will always be in my heart and in my memory❤️.

The Mahatma of Long Island; a truly "great soul". One of the finest people I've known in my lifetime, in so very many ways.

Kenneth was larger than life, fun, kind, gentle, tough, strong and good. In High School he looked like Rocky Balboa. Friends enjoyed the cool that rubbed off on them when he was present. He was the definition of cool with tattoos revealing his inner spirit to the world. Always ready to lend a hand and help his friends in need of a pat on the back, a job, a laugh, protection from an adversary – he hated injustice!
For almost 50 years I have called him “big brother” and he called me “little sista.” My sweet family – my husband, daughter, mother, father and sister loved him for all these years. He drove my mother down our street on his motorcycle when we were in High School – she felt safe with him!
His troubles wore on him even though it didn’t appear that way. I hope I gave him comfort these last few painful months. I think I did. His doctor called me Tuesday to tell me that he died at 6:30am from, most likely, a heart attack. She comforted me when she said “I’m calling you because you were very close with Kenny.” He told her that I was like a sister to him. She said he was too weak for the chemo or the liver transplant that we hoped would come to be. She said “he waited too long to come in. This is a teaching moment for his friends.” I look at it as a teaching moment, a gift from him to everyone to not wait if you don’t feel well, to seek treatment. His big heart that failed to carry him further may help a friend or someone he cared about to not wait to seek health care.
He told me, “Jeannie, I’ve always been strong and tough and I can’t imagine being an invalid.” His doctor told me his heart was too weak to go on. Life in the end was kind to him. He was spared more suffering. We miss you terribly, beautiful, big brother.

Heartfelt condolences to Ken’s family and close friends on his untimely death. I feel that the world is a lesser place with his passing, but that heaven is a better place upon his arrival. It had been many, many years since I last saw Ken, but one of the good things about modern technology is the ability to reconnect with wonderful folks, and I was delighted by Ken’s frequent, thoughtful and kind interactions with me. He was a beautiful man who will be missed greatly. May he know only joy, peace, and love for eternity. With sympathy, Joanne (Crisafulli) Drozdoski, WWHS Class of 1974

In the business we are in you always need a rabbi, Kenny was mine. I met Kenny in 2002 as a fill in driver for the company he was the steward at, he did everything he could to make sure I always got a days pay and become a full time employee. He defended his men and his union to the end, he always had your back. He was a great friend and union man.

To those of you who knew Mr. Ziomek; Kenny you left us way too early but you gave us so many memories. Some we can share together and some were more personal in nature. One thing was for sure, if you were Kenneth’s friend, he gave you two things in return. His loyalty and he defended you no matter what. Kenny “had your back”. He made you feel safe. He took the heat. We met in ninth grade Wood shop at Memorial Junior High. We made friends right away. Kenny and his older brother Glenn would always take me with them to the Huntington YMCA in Halesite, Long Island. One night during the winter snowstorm of 1969/70 (when we were both about 15 years old) while leaving the gym Kenny grabbed Glenn’s car keys and off we ran to his brother’s car. We quickly locked all four doors. Then Kenny started his brother’s car, and off we went sliding all over the parking lot as Kenny did donut after donut. We couldn’t stop laughing (it hurt so bad). Glenn had a “big heart” and never really got mad. He loved Kenny. A lot of “the guys” would go over to Kenny’s house and lift weights in his garage. He use to love playing Led Zeppelin at MAX volume through his parents very old radio/ record player that had one huge (Woofer) speaker. You could hear the music all the way down the block. When crazy Eddie came along Kenny went out and bought the biggest and most powerful stereo system that was being sold at that time. Kenny’s first car was a big Plymouth Fury with a 318 cid V8 motor. He use to drive Jeannie and me all over town. We had so much fun. Jeannie and Kenneth have been best friends for almost 50 years! Kenny was the only person I knew that was a bouncer at a bar at age 16. His first motorcycle was a Kawasaki 750cc two cycle (you had to mix the oil and gas together) and boy did it smoke. He liked the feeling of being free when he got on a bike. He also liked going really fast when he was younger. Kenny got me my first tractor trailer driving job (before I enlisted in the Air Force). Kenny and his beautiful wife Dottie (Foster) Ziomek would always invite me into their home on Shady Lane in Smithtown for dinner or just to visit. Kenny could play the piano and the guitar. He was also on the wrestling team in school with Billy another very dear friend. Kenny was a good friend and he will be missed by so many of us but will always be remembered. God bless you our friend. Eddie

I will always remember Kenny as one of the nicest guys I’ve known. He was intelligent, compassionate, kind, witty, loyal, and funny as hell. Kenny was a hard worker, and a friend you could count on. I will remember him with great fondness and with a smile. Rest In Peace Kenny. Gone too soon.
