He was a member of the U.S. Army Infantry Campaign C and served in the Vietnam Conflict earning two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star with valor. Ken was a truck driver by trade, but his passion was the outdoors. He loved horses and being a cowboy, but the most important thing in life was his family. He was so proud of his children and enjoyed his time with them. He loved little children, especially his grandchildren. He had many close friends, and he was loyal to them all.
