“Gayle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Ken Hechler's family as they mourn the loss of an incredibly caring human being and a dedicated public servant. Ken was a man of his word - a fierce advocate for West Virginians who was always willing to help any person in need. Ken was a dear friend who I could always turn to for trusted advice. He was held in the highest level of trust as a public servant who will be missed by all West Virginians.”
