It is with a heavy heart that we let you know that Ken Gilmurray, of MOPAC/JBS, passed away last weekend.  Ken was a longtime, valuable member of the American Fats and Oils Association (AFOA) and the industry.  He was considered by many as a friend as well as colleague.

As we understand it, Ken was experiencing strong COVID-19 symptoms late last week.  He had been told to self-quarantine after taking a test for COVID-19 but hadn’t received results yet.

Ken was dedicated to the industry (rendering especially) and will be missed.  We recognize him for his commitment and contributions to our industry.  He was also active in other professional organizations, including the American Feed Industry Association and the North American Renderers Association.

Ken is survived by his mother and brothers.  We express our sincere condolences to his family.  I will share more information, such as arrangements, as it becomes available.
