With great sadness, we announce that our NHRMC family lost a beloved co-worker in EMS.

Paramedic Ken Willets unexpectedly passed away on April 7, 2019. Ken was one of the first paid employees of New Hanover County EMS before NHRMC took over EMS in 1998. Ken dedicated his entire career to EMS and the community he served.

Ken nobly served his community with a kind heart, overwhelming passion, and with great enthusiasm. Ken’s smile and laughter will be missed by all, but not forgotten.

Ken’s family will receive visitors 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, April 10, in Burgaw. Ken’s Funeral will be held at Quinn McGowen Funeral Home in Burgaw at 11 a.m. Thursday with a graveside service immediately following.
