An active and committed man, Ken was never content with being idle. He was involved in various sports while growing up and later served as an officer in the United States Air Force for four years. While his career-choice was in insurance and later heating and air conditioning sales. Kenís passions in life were his family and in serving others. Ken married the love of his life, Sharla, in 1963 and they had two children together, Jonna and Matthew. Ken was a dedicated father to his children, volunteering as a coach for their various teams, as well as opening up his home to any of his childrenís friends or any animals that may have showed up at the house. Ken loved his seven grandchildren and two great-grandsons very much and looked forward to watching all of their activities.
Ken was actively involved in mission work through his church, Aldersgate United Methodist Church. He especially enjoyed attending Appalachia Service Project (ASP) for six years, helping to repair homes for those in need. Ken loved bird-watching, old cars, tools, and (dead) trees. He and Sharla also enjoyed traveling together in retirement.
