Kenneth Lawrence Narloch, 70, passed away early Wednesday morning on December 1, 2021, at his home. He was born on May 11, 1951, in Wausau, son of Lawrence and Alice Narloch.
Ken was a plasterer in the family business of Narloch Plastering. He was always complimented on the swirls he would create on ceilings. After retiring from plastering, his recent job was with Lamers Bus Lines for the D.C. Everest School District. He was among the office personnel staff and helped as a school bus driver.
Throughout his life he enjoyed fishing, hunting and family gatherings. He was also dedicated to his faith helping out with the Church whether it be on a council, RCIA or singing in the choir. Ken married Linda Beltran on June 24, 2000, in Camarillo, California at St. Mary Magdalen Church. Together he and Linda would help donate food, feeding the hungry and teaching Religious Education to the youth in numerous parishes. They enjoyed visiting various parishes and Catholic shrines, and loved praying together in Adoration. When asked what church he belonged to, Ken would say with a smile, “We are parishioners of the Wausau Deanery.”
He is survived by his beloved wife of 21 years, Linda; a brother Nicholas (Janet), Waukesha, Wisconsin; his mother and father in-law Henry and Angie Beltran, Ventura, California; sister and brothers-in-law Sally (Harry) Hancock, Goodyear, Arizona; Henry (Jean) Beltran, Lucama, North Carolina and Christopher (Becky) Beltran, Ventura, California. He was also blessed with nieces and nephews in which two nieces were his goddaughters: Alyssa Narloch and Christine Beltran.
