He is survived by his loving mother, Helen, residing in Stuart, Florida, and fondly remembered by his siblings, Robert and Annie. Ken leaves behind nephews, Kye and Sean Shibata. He is preceded in death by his father, Robert Rayve.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests memorial donations be made to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
In the tapestry of our memories, may the warmth of Kenzo's laughter and his love of family, weave a legacy of love and inspiration, and may he rest in eternal peace.
