Ken was very creative, and especially talented in wood working. He made numerous furniture and decorative items that are cherished by his family. He and Betty enjoyed going up north to their "cabin".

He enjoyed traveling, and was an avid Packer and Brewer fan.
Ken enjoyed teaching important lessons from everyday life or from a story he would tell. He was an example of commitment, hard work and love for his family.
