Ken was educated in Burlington. He was U.S. Army Veteran who served in the Korean War. Ken was a proud and passionate American. Upon returning from his tour in the Army, he worked as an automotive mechanic.

Once Ken retired, he enjoyed puttering in the yard, his family, traveling in his RV, working on engines, and flea markets. He especially loved the annual Flywheelers convention. He collected and built antique cars where his biggest accomplishment and pride was his 1923 Buick. He often quoted Henry Ford stating that “you can have any color you want as long as its black”.
