    Default kfrancis, AKA Ken Brown died last Saturday in Barahona

    I think that Ken was one of the earliest members of this forum. I arrived on the 15th of August, 2017, and spoke with him until I ran out of minutos We were planning to asking about blue and other unusual rocks, but he had a heart attack in the bank of a heart attack, According to his PN driver, he was hit by a guagua the day before but did not think it was serious enough to see a doctor.
    He had a restored 70's Toyota Land Cruiser Diesel Pickup and was sort of a mayordomo to an important guy in Cabral named Lilo There were upwards of 100 people at his funeral. He told me that he only has one relative
    left, in NC.
    He was sure that there was a motherlode of some sort up in the Baorucos.
    I may have been the only DR1'er in attendance. I am pretty sure he was in Cabral or thereabouts. He was 71.

    Very sad, I spoke with Ken often. I wish we'd have known.

    This is very sad news.

    He was an infrequent poster but when he posted he proved a source of valuable insight into a lovely, perhaps the loveliest part of DR. It appears to me, the forum has so very few active posters who do live west of SD in such a vast and beautiful part of this country and so it unfortunately gets ignored.

    Some will very much miss his posts.
