Kenneth Karl (Ken) Buhler died from a massive heart attack in his home on Sunday night September 6th. He had just returned home from one of his favorite activities, fishing. His plan was to take a quick nap and then clean the fish. He never had a chance to complete his plan. Ken was born October 14, 1959 and lived most of his life in Baton Rouge where he was best known as a good friend and an outstanding auctioneer. He had his own Antique auction business for many years, and at the beginning of the dot com era, started GoAntiques, an online sales channel for antique dealers around the world. The world was not quite ready for that, so he started Estate Auction Services, a company devoted to selling homes and their furnishings at auction. He has been an auctioneer for Henderson's Auctions in Livingston for many years and for the past few years sold the trade-in vehicle stock for a large auto dealer in Lafayette. Ken was also the Chief Motivational Officer for a company that sells full body motion machines. In his spare time, Ken conducted many charity auctions for groups such as the Food Bank, Breast Awareness Association and the NRA. Ken was a lover-of life. He had his weaknesses and fell down several times, but each time he picked himself up, brushed himself off and started over again with even more energy than the previous time. Ken made his first speckled trout fishing trip when he was five and one might say he was hooked. From that day forward, fishing was always very important to him. In fact, for the past few years, he and his cousins, Joyce Guy and Evelyn Wilkinson, spent many hours crawfishing, catfishing, and catching bullfrogs in the Spillway at Ramah. Ken served his country by enlisting in the Marine Corps in the late 1970's and was honorably discharged. Ken is survived by his mother, Aline Alford, as well as his father and step mother, Mac and Betti Helen Buhler; son, Wyatt; and daughter Haley Logue; his brother, Alton and wife Tammy, his step brother, Walker Herlitz, step sister Elizabeth Cortes and husband Raul, an Aunt, Jeanette Buhler, an Uncle Clyde Gremillion, as well nieces Leah Cole and husband Shelby, Hannah Newman and husband, mason, and nephew Jake Buhler and wife Dustenn and many cousins. The close surviving cousins include: Joyce Guy, Becky Brown and husband Larry, Donna Edwards and husband Dickie, Patti Perkins and husband Greg, Gaye McKnight and husband Roger, Jami Glazer and husband Bobby, Terri Castarona, Alton Alford, Katherine Jones, Carlton Jones and wife Sharon, Jan Brantley and husband David, Connie Jones and husband Bobby, Janelle Nunley and husband Lynn, and honorary cousin Evelyn Wilkinson. Funeral services are at Greenoaks Funeral Home on Florida Boulevard with visitation from 10 to 11 a.m. on Friday September 11th. Services will begin and 11 a.m. followed by burial at Roselawn Cemetery on North Street. Pall Bearers are Jake Buhler, David Kern, Reggie Sterling, Greg Pizzolato, Lee Burns and Steve Dupre.

Hello,

I have worked for ZAAZ on an active basis for a total of about ten and a half weeks. I never had the pleasure of meeting Ken in person I always looked forward to hearing him on the daily motivation calls along with the Friday calls which he was on 90% of the time. More, so I looked forward to the one on one coaching calls. He always seemed to have some little nugget of advice that when implemented always seemed to have a positive effect in getting my head back in the game and sales back on the board.
One time that really sticks out in my mind was my third road show in Cedar Park Texas and on my coaching call he offered one very simple strategy to try. When the call was over I immediately started using his suggestion and within fifteen minutes of hanging up with Ken I sold a machine to a first time visit using his technique.

I have been in sales in one form or another for fourteen years now and one lesson Is to always remain flexible, coach able an be ready to adapt. I learned many great lessons about sales and life in general from Ken and am grateful for the short time I was lucky to have him as support and a mentor.
Ken always liked to point out to all the ZAAZ representatives just how fortunate we where to be able to sell something that truly had the ability to change an individual, a family or a whole tribe's life in such a positive way through health and wellness. It is a great honor to be a ZAAZ representative and comes with an even greater responsibility to find all those who need the ZAAZ and find a way to get it in there home!
So long Ken I hope the Catfish and the sales prospects are biting like crazy in heaven!

We feel privileged to have known Ken. We was a man who loved God, his family, his grandchildren and he loved helping people. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

We respected him and will miss him very much. Ken's last day on earth was his first day in heaven.

Ken was always available if you needed to chat . He would call and ask if I needed assistance at work. Even tho we never met in person, I can tell he cared for every human being . He was very altruistic , and he sold zaaz to help people. Many Iives have improved and have been enriched by this man . He would always crack jokes on calls . My only regret is never getting to actually meet him in person . He was taken before his time , may his life lessons continue to be taught .

I had the Divine pleasure of working with Ken at ZAAZ. I will always remember his kindness and faith that he had in me especially in times when I doubted myself. He will truly be missed. My prayers go out to the family. Sincerely, Desiree

I will remember Ken’s smile. It lit up his face and shined on those around him. When he was young, there may also have been a twinkle in his eye and a hint of mischief with it. As an adult, Ken readily shared his broad smile, often with a big hug or pat on the back. As children, we were together at many family gatherings, usually at Finchley, between Auntie’s (his Gran) or Aunt Sis’ houses; part of the pack of cousins connected by the strong family ties between our Mixon-Ott elders. Over the years, I witnessed Ken’s love and devotion to his family, especially in his care and attention to his Gran and his mother. Ken was taken from his family far too soon, and he will be greatly missed. Sending my love and sympathy to Aline, Mac, Alton, their families, our cousins, and all of Ken’s family and friends. May they find comfort in their memories of time spent with Ken, including remembering his smile.

He was charismatic and full of energy. A true motivator that was always there for others. He was someone that you can count on.

Have known Ken all my life, growing up as cousins and recall many fun Sunday afternoons playing together as young kids at his Gran’s house. We also enjoyed a few great fishing trips down to the coast as boys, with our dad’s. Always quick with a smile and ready for the next adventure. Ken had a kind heart and a good soul. Worked hard and played hard, not a bad way to live life! Sandy and I send our thoughts and prayers to Ken’s family. Charles and Sandy Beysselance
