I just learned of Mr. Kiekenapp's passing. I am a friend of his daughter, Rebecca. I will always remember how proud he was of Becky and driving with him and Mrs. Kiekenapp to the U of M to watch one of Becky's concerts. Mr. Kiekenapp got up during the performace and whispered to me, "I love listening to her...but my hips are killing me!" He got up, walked to the back of the performace hall and stood there, proud as can be to watch his daughter play. All my best to the Kiekenapp family.
