After retirement he was a member of the Silver Swallows alumni group and enjoyed meeting for frequent Breakfast. He married his wife Carolyn in 2001 and fit like the missing piece of the puzzle to her family. Kenneth and his wife enjoyed traveling; they went to most of the countries throughout Europe. Snow skiing was Kenneth’s biggest hobby. He was a quiet man. He is remembered as being modest, humble and kind. His family meant the world to him, and he loved to spend time with them. Kenneth was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Memorial donations in Kenneth’s name may be made to the American Lung Association.
