Pat Marks (Maintenance Supervisor Mechanical) (2010)

Ken Schilling was a meticulous, caring, and direct person who took a special interest in our mill in general, and particular in our Dresser-Roots vacuum blowers. These blowers were a very integral part of our #3 paper machine operation.   Ken, when he was in our mill, was a part of our paper maintenance crew.  Ken took part in our daily safety meetings and was quick to criticize and to compliment both the production and maintenance crews.  When there was a problem with our blower system Ken would always be glad to help get us back into production.  I remember that Ken made sure that we had the phone numbers of all his relatives in case we couldn't get him on his cell or home phone.  Ken took a personal interest in the entire crew and their families.  Ken will be dearly missed by all that knew him, and our sympathy goes out to his close friends and family.
