Ken Gadbois, former owner and editor of the Herscher Pilot passed away on May 15, 2021. 

Ken enjoyed his life and trade in Herscher.  He enjoyed the affiliation with the good people of Herscher, raising our children, Julia and Joshua, there.  

Their summers were rich and full, running around the town, playing on the creek, drinking from the public fountain, eating bologna sandwiches the parents in town provided. 

Ken looked around the town and wrote of the goodness and joy he saw in many, many places, many many people.  

Our hearts are sad and joyful all at the same time to see Ken go, but where he went is the joyful part that carries us through.

Ken was 84. He was born Dec 24, 1936.
