As an adult, Ken was a long-time member of three organizations:

His affinity for security and service found a welcome home near his childhood home where he'd share duties with his brothers, their father, other fire-fighters, and their community.

His commitment to keeping the community clean and safe was at-home in the sewage plant he oversaw for 3 decades.

His love of cars found kinship among close friends in Rev Masters.

In retirement, Ken continued his professional work consulting with several local treatment plants. He enjoyed bicycling local trails with friends and family when he wasn’t visiting drag races or car shows.

The family would like to thank everyone at BCTA, DCI, and Lakeview who cared for him as his health declined, along with numerous friends and family who gave selflessly when he needed it most.

In lieu of a service, a memorial celebration of photographs and memories will be scheduled later this year in warmer weather.
