Ken Arvieux, database services assistant for Educational Technology and for Project Management within IT, died Tuesday, June 30, 2009. Ken started working for EdTech as a temporary employee in January 2008 and was hired on full-time in November 2008.
Ken was a dedicated employee and a very hard worker for EdTech. He helped Gandalf Sidio to support the classroom technology during our first year of existence as an organization on campus. He also helped collect and organize a lot of the information we needed about the equipment we support. Ken’s efforts on behalf of EdTech really helped us become successful in our first year.
On a personal level, Ken was a good man to work with. He was very positive and cheerful in every way. He was very friendly to everyone he met in the department and on campus. Ken was extremely proud of his wife and his family. His son went on a mission trip last year to Mongolia. Fortunately, he was able to keep in touch with his son through the miracle of modern technology and could give us updates on how his son was doing so far from home. I think one of his happiest days in recent memory was the day his son came home.
Ken Arvieux was a good man and he will be missed.
