Kenneth "Ken" Wayne Brownell, age 74 of East Lansing, went to be with his Lord May 14, 2019. He was born to Wayne and Marion Brownell in Muir, Michigan and married Terrie (Leddick) on February 1, 1969.

Ken was a retired USAF Lt Col. Most of his life work was centered in the insurance business. Colonial Life Insurance Company was his last job. It was a great opportunity for him to help others. Through his work, Ken counseled those looking to protect their families in the future, because he knew how important family was. Ken was also proud of having attended Ferris State University and his membership at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Lansing.

So sorry to hear of Ken's passing. What a wonderful man. He was always such a joy to see. I loved our chitchat and hearing about the family's new adventures. My prayers to Terrie, Justin and family members.
