KEN SLEZAK

A few months ago Ken was diagnosed with a serious illness. We have been hoping and praying for his recovery. Unfortunately he lost his fight yesterday. As a clarinet player Ken has been one of the longest standing members of New Horizons. We are going to miss his quiet sense of humor. If you would like to send a card to his family, please send it to : Loretta Slezak, 3119 Grill Rd, New Franklin, OH 44216.
