Ken married Janice Schumann on May 28, 1966 at St. Wendelin’s Catholic Church in Luxemburg. He retired as a carpenter in 2000, continuing as a member of the Local 930 Carpenters Union (since 1967). Ken was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church. He was also a member of the Moose Lodge and the St. Augusta Legion Post 621. Ken loved fishing, gardening, baseball, playing cards, and jigsaw puzzles. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
