My sincere condolences to the Tokle family. We have been friends for more than 70 years and have really enjoyed the time together. I was involved with Ken as a kid learning to ski jump on Milberts Ski Hill on Mt Road here in High Falls which he was instrumental in getting organized.
His mom n Dad we're family friends when my parents had the Aqueduct Sweet Shop ice cream shop in town.
He will be missed . May he RIP
