On that day, Undersheriff, Donnie Patch said, “Ken has been an integral part of the Weld County Sheriff’s Posse’ for many years and will be Sorley missed. Ken joined the Posse’ a couple years after I did. For the past 16 years, he has been a good friend and mentor. He is an outstanding horseman, a quiet leader and willingly taught others everything he could about horsemanship. It was important for me to there today, because Ken has had an influence on my personal and professional growth as a leader, he truly is a mentor and has helped me learn many lessons in my leadership. Being there today gave me one last opportunity to tell him what a positive effect he had on me.”
