"Kenny, someday someone is going to invent a collapsible yard sign", a favorite line of Ken's Uncle Ray Coleman, forever cemented in his memory.
"I was 11 years old", Ken shares, "I remember high-fiving the football players as we were loading the plane for a football game in Utah and feeling proud to get to ride alongside my Uncle who was the Chairman of the Wichita St. Shockers Football Team Booster Club and President of the Wichita Board of Realtors. Big stuff for a kid."
Moments before takeoff, Ken's mother came and took teary-eyed Kenny off the plane. She felt uncomfortable about him flying that day. Hours later he learned of the devastating plane crash that took the lives of all but a few, including his Uncle Ray and Aunt Maxine, who took Ken's seat at the last moment.
The loss of the most important role figure in Ken’s life influenced him to follow in his Uncle’s footsteps, choosing a career in Real Estate and ultimately the engineering of the revolutionary sign his Uncle dreamed of.
This lifelong determination and goal of Ken’s is finally being realized in Southwest, MO, with the introduction of Tubular Signs~~~The Sign With A Difference. Tubular Signs revolutionary patent-pending design replaces the encumbrancing, old traditional design.
