KOMO has lost one of our greats.

Ken Schram was a part of the KOMO family for 35 years working as a reporter, commentator, host, and radio personality before retiring two years ago. He passed away Thursday afternoon at the age of 66 with his family by his side.

Ken had been battling an internal infection for the past several months. His wife Sandi was at his side night and day since he fell ill. Ken told her every day of their 44 years together that she was the love of his life.

Ken was brash and opinionated. He was a devilish practical joker, known for his nicknames and his no-holds-barred sense of humor.

And that was only the beginning.

There is a 4th floor deck outside the news director's office at KOMO. It's against the rules to smoke there. Everybody knows that.

And for that reason alone, it was Ken Schram's favorite place to light up. He was like that.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.
