A friend of mine who had more zest for life than almost anyone in the world, recently passed away.
Last month Ken Moskow passed away while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Ken was a very successful real estate developer and also one of the top counter-terrorism agents. but more importantly, he was a great person, a great father, and someone who was respected by everyone around him.
I last saw Ken a few months ago when I put together a little dinner party in Boston. Ken, predictably, was the hit of the dinner.
I met Ken seven years ago right before Sept 11. We met at a foreign policy conference with the theme of homeland security and protection against terrorist threats. (this was in June 2001). I remember noting how Ken's amazing ability to analyze different sets of facts and come up with cogent scenarios. and I also remember admiring his amazing ability to instantly make friends with people.
Ken — you are a great man and you will be missed.
