Fred, an extra condolence to you as you have a much more personal loss being close to Ken “in real life.”   You have always been one of the sharpest posters here and we’ve missed your contributions.  Nevertheless, very sorry for your personal loss.  

This whole thing is so shocking.  

Fred I second what Bob posted. You are in my thoughts and prayers my friend.

It is with a heavy heart that I must tell everyone that Ken Kurowski, aka milehiiu, passed away Monday, December 14th, 2020. He fell down the basement stairs of his home and hit his head, rendering hi

I don't have the words to express what Mile meant to this board and to myself. I am still in shock and its so odd how you can hurt and mourn someone you never met. Mile was the kindest most sincere pe

In memory of Mile / Ken and the civility he helped bring we are renaming our Rules forum "Milehiiu's Board Rules" -- (the name change will show up soon) From back in his mod days, when he played

So incredibly sad and tragic. Makes you really reflect on how quickly life can change.

My thoughts are with his family, and those who knew him closely. 

He was the mod on the old Scout site when I first started posting about IU basketball, and always remembered him welcoming me to the community. 

His contributions will be greatly missed.

I know I already posted once, but I have to again after time to process. Almost two years ago to the day my son was in the middle of his second of three hospitalizations due to pneumonia.  We watched Phinisee hit the shot to beat Butler there. I mentioned in one thread where I was and what was going on with my son. Ever since, whenever Mile would respond to a post of mine he would almost always conclude by checking on my son and wishing him well. That meant a lot to me. That was what I’ll remember most about him. He didn’t just care about members fandom, it was them as people and their lives that mattered to him. 

Parakeet....I posted the same thing about him earlier. Qualities like these are rare these days! It really says something about Mile as a man from this tremendous out pouring. He positively and genuinely cared for everyone. Most telling thing of all....Only a few of the vast HSN members, new and old, have had the privilege to even meet him personally. I only knew him as MILEHIU, never knew his real name and have never seen his face.

This stands out to me, and captures what I think of Mile.

A Hoosier through and through, a fatherly figure that was always encouraging. 

To a life well lived, HSN will never forget you.

Almost immediately, I thought this gives new meaning to his consistent mention of the "always apply the Jeffries rule". To me now it will mean to always treat ever day like it may be your last, because we don't know what will happen tomorrow.

it really is tough.  i was trying to explain to my wife how long i had been on the same message board with him and hat although i didn't know him personally that he was one of the good guys.  i was telling her that we all often disagree and get after each other, but that he never made it personal or got aggressive with people... just a good dude.  i honestly got just a little choked up telling her about how he passed.  along those lines, and please, not trying to get off topic here, but does anyone know if HoosierTilDeath is okay?  

I asked about HTD a couple weeks ago and didn't hear anything. I can just imagine him yelling and screaming during football season. I can see him being like Shooter in the Hoosiers movie when he was in rehab and his son was playing in the state tournament.
Crester and Mile have been reunited in Heaven. I can imagine together making plans to roll out HSN 3.1.

Just had a memory that demonstrates how synonymous MIle was to this forum in my eyes.

I can't even remember how long ago this was, but there was a time when HSN spontaneously shut down. It maybe was in it's transition from HSN 1.0 TO 2.0. or 1.5 to 2.0. haha. I didn't check the board as frequently back in those days and had no idea what happened or where everybody went. After trying peegs for a few weeks and getting completely frustrated with the format of their old board and any information of significance being behind a paywall, I thought I'd try googling the username of the one poster I knew and remembered from HSN to see where he ended up.....because that was the place where I wanted to be. That poster was was MilehiIU....I eventually found him and the rest of the IUBB community I wanted to be a part of.  

I really wish this was a memory I remembered earlier because now I kind of regret not telling him that. Man, I will miss him.
