For the past 12 years, he served as the President of his home owners association, taking excellent care of his friends and neighbors. Ken most loved spending time with his wife, girls and his grandchildren. He and Lynn traveled as often as they could except during golf season. He loved to play golf and has a few holes in one to his credit! Ken deeply enjoyed spending time with his golf friends and weekly poker buddies. They are treasured friends and always made his day.
