After being discharged from the Marines he went to tech school to become an auto mechanic. Ken’s passion was working on vehicles, welding, building generators, and fixing anything that needed to be fixed. Ken enjoyed going to the casino, fishing, and grilling out with his family.  He enjoyed family get togethers, he was always the first to arrive.  In the past couple of years, he started to watch grilling videos and sharing them with his kids on “tik tok”. Ken will always be remembered as a very kind patient man, always willing to do anything for anyone.
