Ken has walked with God since his youth and was a wonderful son, brother, husband, father, Papa and friend. Ken never hesitated when our Heavenly Father called him into service to others. Together with his wife they opened their home for church life in both Mobile and Harvest.
Ken loved having the family in his home. One of the highlights of each year was the Grandparent Camp that they held every summer. He was blessed to have been a part of the baptism of all six grandchildren. His legacy lives on in his sons and grandchildren and many others who were a part of his life. He will be missed, but oh, what a blessing to have had this man on earth for 69 years!
Ken was preceded in death by his parents.
