The son of Robert Edgar Lee and Annette Gertrude (nee Donaghue) Lee, Kenneth was born on Saturday, April 20, 1935, in Hood River, Oregon, as the youngest of 17 children.

Shortly after graduation, he enlisted into the United States Air Force and was deployed and stationed at the Royal Air Force Sculthorpe military airbase in Fakenham, England. While in the military, Kenneth was a K-9 handler to an Alsatian named Misha. After 30 years of hard work and dedication, Kenneth retired as a mechanic from General Motors.
