A Public Memorial Service with full Military Honors will be held:

June 9, 2004 at 10:30 a.m.

Mountain View Sports Pavilion
1185 Castro St.
Mountain View, CA 94040

Immediately after the Memorial, there will be a private burial ceremony for the family only.

Approximately 2 p.m. we will gather at Cuesta Park in Mountain View for a Celebration of Ken's life! 

That's where we hope to hear the "real" Ken stories- perhaps the ones we couldn't hear at the memorial, the unedited ones!

 It will give me time to meet with those who I haven't been able to chat with.  

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been set up in Ken's name.

Proceeds will be used for educational and/or patriotic endeavors

Checks may be made payable to:

"Lt Ken Ballard Fund" 

 PO Box 1102

 Mountain View, CA 94042-1102. 

Alternately, a donation in Ken's name to the charity of your choice would also be appreciated.
