He met and married Betty Klungland, and they became parents to three children. Ken was always a family man who loved to go camping, fishing, hunting, and golfing. He was community-minded and was active in I.O.O.F (Oddfellows), Masons, the Shriner's band, Scottish Rite, Blue Horizon, Good Sams, and amateur radio as ham radio operator KC7NY.

He was a kind man, ever ready to help a friend in need. We will miss his contagious smile, and the sunshine he brought into our lives.

Memorials may be sent to Shriner's Children's Hospital or to The North Central Senior Citizens Center.
