Ken and his wife Julie moved to Buckingham Township full time from New York City and Long Island in 2019, but they have enjoyed life along the Delaware River for much longer than that. Annual summer camping trips with the Boy Scouts at Treasure Island Scout Reservation, canoe trips in high school and college days, and family camping in the Delaware Water Gap were all part of their lives. Now they enjoy the views along the Canal towpath while biking, hiking and walking their dog Dizzi.
Ken retired in 2018 after a 43-year career in engineering, managing the planning, design and rehabilitation of infrastructure projects. He found working on dams, locks and canals to be the most interesting and challenging projects, including more than a dozen projects along the New York State (Erie) Canal and the D & R Canal in NJ. He hopes that experience will be put to good use along the Delaware Canal. Ken has been a member of the Friends’ Advocacy, Restoration & Maintenance Committee for the last year. Ken has degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Lehigh University and is a licensed Professional Engineer and a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
