Ken will be truly missed by his brothers, Richard and his wife, Melissa, of Newtown and Robert and his wife, Karen, of Shelton; his partner, David Thayer, of Monroe; and his beloved dog, Tobey. He will always be remembered for his willingness to help anyone at anytime and by his nieces and nephews, Arianna, Aidan, and Addison Della Corte of Newtown; Michael Della Corte of Long Beach, Calif.; and Kristen Della Corte of Milford.
