  24. Louise, Kris and Greg, Words seem so insufficient to convey our deepest sympathy. Ken was a loving husband and caring father, wanting only the BEST for his family. This is the same care he extended to his work family. I have had the privilege to work with Ken at Convergint. Ken’s rarity was not only his intelligence and insight but his Wisdom. Truly Wisdom is a GOD given Gift and it is bestowed on a rare few whose Belief is strong and walk of Faith enduring. My GOD Bless and keep your family.

  25. Louise, Kris and Greg… Your Husband and Dad was a great man. I know that he knew the Lord and the Lord knows him. I am very blessed to have worked with Ken and to have known him in this life. I look forward to seeing him again in spirit.
    Our prayers are with you and may God help you all as you persevere through this time.

Losing those we love always takes a piece of our hearts with them but what a blessing to know the hope we have in the Lord that we will see him again. I’ve been blessed to have known Ken and prayed for so many of his family, friends, and coworkers for so many needs since we started meeting Wednesday mornings in 2001. He’ll be missed by many of us but we know where he is and who he’s with and look forward to being there ourselves. God bless ya’ll and we’ll be praying for your peace and healing.

  27. My regret is that I didn’t get to know Kenneth in this life even though I have known his brother Larry for my whole life. Well wishes to the family and a prayer for peace to Louise, Greg and Kristopher in their time of great loss. My contributions will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.

  28. To the LaChance family, Ken will be GREATLY missed. His contribution to the Security Industry (ASIS) will always be remembered. It was a honor to have served with Ken on the ASIS Atlanta Chapter Board for 5yrs as well as the previous 17yrs as a member of the chapter. Knowing that Ken was a Man of Faith in The Lord Jesus Christ, I say as the Apostle Paul said 2 Corinthians 5:8 “we are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and be present with the Lord”. May Gods Love, Grace and Peace be with you. Amen

  29. Doug and I are so sorry for your family’s loss. In watching the video it was good to see the happy and fulfilling life Ken had. He achieved so much and got to live so many of his dreams. He will always be with you in your hearts and through the many memories you all share. May God bless you all.

  30. I am at a loss for words Louise. From the way you spoke of Ken we know what a loving marriage you had and how the good Lord played a vital roll. It is hard to understand why He calls the good ones home so soon. May you take some comfort in knowing so many friends and family are keeping you and your boys in their hearts, thoughts and prayers. God speed Ken.

Peace be with you, wife and family, please remember all the good times and celebrate the life of this wonderful husband, father and brother. Marj Spence

  33. Joni and I want to offer our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the entire Lachance family on the loss of Ken.
