Your family continues to stay in our thoughts and prayers. It is hard to believe 10 years have passed so quickly. I hope all of you have found some peace through the very difficult times. God bless!

I remember Ken because I babysat for Ken and his sisters from the time he was born. We lived on Elmbrook Lane in Scott Township. They were a wonderful family and I am sure he carried that on to his family. I still think of all of the Waldie family.

My thoughts and prayers go to all of them

My sisters and I swam with Ken and Jane at Bethel Park High school. Ken was a great guy from a wonderful family. I knew his mother who loved to go to Woodland Hills swim club where I life guarding with Jane. Mrs W had every reason to be proud. Who knew that Ken would be a hero on this special day. I would like to think that he fought the enemy, someway, somehow. He would not have gone out without a fight. This is KEN we are talking about!

I actually never knew Ken. I only saw his name on CNN today and saw he was from this area. I decided to google his name, and found this. I am sorry for your loss.

I went to high school with JT, Ken would be proud what a wonderful son he raised. I pray for you Ken, and my thoughts go out to your family

For ten years now, hardly a day goes by where I am not reminded of "Waldo". As you always said, "Tis better to have carried the ball and fumbled than never to have carried the ball at all." Well, you have a grip on that ball and you will never let us go. Amazing what a great man you are and it is written all over your image in your grin! On this tenth anniversary of your passing, please know that we will NEVER forget you. May God bless Carol and your family.

Remembering Ken on this tenth anniversary of 9/11. Waldo was a classmate at NAPS and the Naval Academy. A leader and one of the truly good guys. Rest in Peace Classmate.

10 Later and I still remember your kindness and have tried to emulate it over the years
RIP Ken "Never Forgotten"

Itís hard to believe 10 years have passed and that Iím now actually the same age as Kenny when he passed. Looking back at the last 10 years itís amazing and sad to realize how our personal and global worlds have changed and all of the truly wonderful people weíve lost and now achingly miss. I know one thing is for sure, Kenny, my Mom and Dad, Eddy, Jocelyn, John and Popanon (and anyone else I might have missed) are smiling down at us all and one day I know we all be together again on some level, just like the good old days. This is something to look forward to - it really is. All things good or bad happen for a reason and one day we will understand and realize these reasons and events that are intertwined and make up the incomprehensibly complex yet beautiful thread of life.

I knew Ken from the days of AAU swimming the Bethel Park, PA, along with his sisters, in our youth. He always had a smile on his face. Memories of those days put a smile on my face. The "swimmers" families during those days were devastated. I still am. "May the sun shine warmly on your face...until we meet again." "May God hold you in the palm of his hand."

Mr. Waldie was my tee ball coach, and was one of the most amazing men I have met in my life. He let me play even though I was two years under the legal age. Even though it was tee ball he taught me the ways of life and I carry many of those lessons he taught me in the world today. RIP to a true hero.

Waldo and I met at the Naval Academy and were stationed together in Washington DC. I spoke with Kennie often and as we grew geographically apart we always found a way to talk every week...The Steelers, Pirates and anything Pittsburgh topped the list, but more than anything he was all about family. He spoke about his wonderful wife and kids and we shared so many stories and parts of our collective lives. My last conversation with Waldo was a day before the tragic flight. When I heard the news about flight 11 I was crushed. I had lost my closest confidant and friend. I think of him often and know that he is with God probably running the sports program in heaven. I really miss him and have a hole in my heart that will never be filled. He was a special guy and one of the best friends someone could have...

Rest in peace, Ken. I miss playing ball with you, mate — Aussie rules....

It has now been almost ten years. We still cry when we think of you, and we still work hard in your memory.

I met Ken at the Naval Academy Prep School (NAPS). Then we went to the Naval Academy together and eventually ended up at Raytheon.

I was in NYC this past year, and as I watched the memorial on the TV and heard his name, the picture they showed was a smiling "Waldo" in a baseball cap. That was the guy I knew and will always remember. He always could put a smile on your face. No matter what kind of day he was having, he found a way to make yours even better.

There isn't a day that goes by that you, as well as your family, are not in our thoughts and prayers. We are that much closer to God just for having known you. Rest in peace.

"Waldo", as all of us who knew him at the Academy affectionately called him, was one of the truly "good guys"! A natural leader, a humble and good friend, the grin he had for everyone - just a few of the things I think about when I think of Ken 'Waldo' Waldie. Gone, but never forgotten! My thoughts and prayers are with his family today! May God Bless you all!

I will always remember Ken. My boys and his son JT played ball and went to school together. Ken was the guy who would quietly stand at the fence in the outfield with his dog and watch the kids. I remember every time we spoke how he praised my boys. Here's a guy whose son JT was one of the best little ball players in town and his Dad would go out of his way to praise the other kids all of them... so Humble.... So kind... I remember driving through town on a drizzly day and seeing Ken hitting ground balls to JT... the only two on the field..
A great man, a great dad, and a great American. You are sorely missed... God bless Ken Waldie and his family... We will never forget

I, too, knew Ken, and all I can tell you is that he was one-of-a-kind. There will never be another person like Ken Waldie. R.I.P., good friend.
